HDM

I used to work as a Chief Operating Officer specialising in sorting out loss making companies with poor customer service and now work as a part time consultant.

I took up golf as my main hobby after I turned 40 and have finally got down to a 7 handicap a few years ago after many lessons and lots of practice. I play mostly with my student son who is now a plus 5 handicap although he prefers to play other sports competitively and does golf mostly as a social activity.

I love playing golf on top courses, often late afternoon when you can get around in 2-3 hours. I have a strong dislike of slow and inconsiderate golfers which you will see in some of my reviews.
