‘’I am thrilled to be joining the Next Step Foundation as an Ambassador as I want to be able to help athletes transition from life in sport to life after sport. I am looking forward to helping many athletes successfully transition from their sport by sharing my experiences in golf and business.’’
Winning the Amateur Championship in 1995, under the incredible tutelage of legendary coach - the late Bob Torrance, enabled me to rub shoulders with many of Golf’s superstars past and present. I turned professional in April 1996 and played competitively until 2004, spanning the globe enjoying the highs and lows associated with Professional Golf and indeed sport. I am currently the CEO of the Links Group, a private, invite only golf club that gives members exclusive access to courses, events and golfing experiences. After my playing career I followed the coaching path. I qualified as a PGA professional and was agent and coach to former Open and Masters champion Sandy Lyle. I also do speaking engagements in various golfing events and functions, helping my audiences relive the excitement of playing in the Open and The Masters and to illustrate how important focus, concentration and mental toughness are when playing at the top level.
