Biography

The son of a professional football player, sport has always been in his blood. Graduated in 2000 with a BSc Hons degree in Sport Science, before improving his handicap from two to plus three and getting into the England squad, with the help of coach George Will. Turned professional at the age of 25, and completed his PGA training before deciding to pursue a playing career. Won the PGA National Assistants Championship in his first year as a professional, a victory which gained him entry to the 2005 BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth Club. Competed in a mixture of PGA Region and EuroPro Tour events but will now play his first full season on the Challenge Tour in 2011, thanks largely to his runner-up finish at the inaugural M2M Russian Challenge Cup in 2010. Matched that finish at the inaugural Gujarat Kensville Challenge, the opening event of the 2011 season.
