Home course is Hillsborough Golf Club in Sheffield. Also a member at Woodhall Spa. Single figure handicapper. Based on Top 100 Golf Courses best course played is Turnberry Ailsa although Pacific Dunes in Oregon gives it a run for it's money. Has played 19 different courses in the US, 22 of the UK and Ireland’s Top 100 and 20 of England’s Top 100.
