My Profile

Upon joining the PGA's training programme in 2005 I worked as an Assistant Professional at Blairgowrie GC before moving to the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort and Spa, St Andrews in 2006. During the next three years I completed the PGA Foundation Degree programme becoming a fully qualified PGA Class 'A' Professional.

I am always looking for ways to improve my knowledge and experience. In October 2010 I achieved PGA 'AA' status through my continued professional development and have since passed the Advanced Certificate in Golf Coaching from the University of Birmingham. I have recently achieved the PGA/UKCC Level 3 coaching qualification.

I am also a qualified rules official and work as a referee on the PGA Europro Tour. I'm the co-founder and Tournament Director of the Ladies Tartan Tour sponsored by the Paul Lawrie Golf Centre (formerly the Scottish Ladies Open Tour). The tour was set up in 2013 with the aim of supporting ladies golf in Scotland and became fully endorsed by the PGA in Scotland in 2014.
