Andy Cocker

Started playing golf in 2011 after a lifetime of tennis and football took its toll on my knees. Have now played 250 different courses across the UK, US, Europe and the Far East. Home course is Hillsborough Golf Club in Sheffield. Also a member at Woodhall Spa. Single figure handicapper. Best course played in my opinion is Pacific Dunes in Oregon. Have played 28 different courses in the US across 12 states, 29 of the UK and Ireland’s Top 100 and 32 of England’s Top 100. Aim is to continue to play as many of the UK’s and England's Top 100 as possible and play abroad at every opportunity.
