Q: What one thing has helped your form over the last month(s)?
A: The weather has undoubtably helped! More accuracy with my irons and not missing so many greens is the key difference!
Q: How long have you been a Flying Club Swinger, and what’s been your most memorable moment so far?
A: This is my 5th Season as a Flying Club Swinger (though I've not kept on top of it from time to time). Unfortunately, due to work commitments, I've not been able to make a single society day so the highlight up to now has to be winning player of the month!
Q: What’s your favourite destination for playing golf, and your favourite course?
A: Travelling globally with my job has given me opportunity to play some truly stunning golf courses. To say I have a few favourites would be an understatement! Tour 18 in Houston, Texas is a course I really enjoy as its constructed to replicate some of the signature holes from the PGA tour. Another favourite from 'across the pond' would be Carlton Woods in The Woodlands, Texas. In the UK, I would have to say some of the courses on the North East Coast of Scotland. Trump International being one but St Andrews Old Course being my favourite.
Q: If you could arrange a Swingers match play against one golfer or celebrity, past or present, who would it be and why?
A: Without being biased, it would have to Sir Richard Branson. Iv'e read all his books and he has had a very fascinating life with an incredible amount of success! How great would it be to walk around a course and 'chew the fat'. He must have some amazing stories to tell. A very inspirational man and not too good at golf I don't think, so I may have a chance of winning!
Q: Why should fellow Swingers contact you for match play at your club?
A: I am extremely fortunate to live on the beautiful Isle of Man (when the suns shining anyway!). 33 miles in length, 13 miles wide, 9 great golf courses and the world famous TT races on your doorstep. What's not to love! Only a 30 minute flight from Manchester or 1 hour from London (and other direct connections to the UK & Ireland) it's the perfect getaway for a short break and a few rounds! We're a friendly bunch over here so please get in touch and I look forward to welcoming you!
