Please give us a brief outline of the path you took to lead you to your current position I started playing golf at school, became good at it. I pursued a career on tour for 3 years and realised I wasn’t that good! I got a position with Callaway golf as a sales. Allan Henning approached me to run the shop at Royal.

I service my members as well as anyone in the industry. I entertain guests at pro-am events. I handle my accounts properly with the agents. I love what I do!
