2013, a recap of my year.....

Well, since the season has nearly come to an end I thought I should write a little post about my very busy 2013 year.

Back in January I helped to start up the Scottish Ladies Open Tour, along with Colin Farquharson. I ran a series of 13 one day events plus a Tour Championship, which started back in April and finished in October. We had over 80 different players at our events, many came from all over the country and I learned a lot about running golf events from the experience.

With the PGA I refereed at four Europro Tour events along with three other PGA National ones and got the opportunity to be the head referee at the Europro's at Concra Woode, in Ireland, and at Rowallan Castle, on the West coast of Scotland.

In between that I spent a week coaching at the R&A Swing Zone which was set up at the Open Championship and to finish off the season I caddied during the Dunhill Links Championship at Kingsbarns .

So, all in all, it's been a very busy summer. Looking forward to a little break before completing my PGA Level 3 Coaching qualification.
