David Richards

Dave’s love affair with golf began in his early teens. This hobby soon took hold and he spent the next few years working in pro shops, before going on to work with Keith in the very, very early days of Top 100 and finally working for the Acushnet company looking after European marketing for FootJoy. He has a preference for links style golf with his personal favourites being Kiawah Island, Royal Liverpool and his old home club of Royal St David’s. Nowadays he can be found on a bike more often than on a golf course, but his passion and knowledge of golf remains undimmed and we are sure we’ll see Dave hacking about in the undergrowth again in the not too distant future.
