Crawford Anderson-Dillon

Crawford was born in Northern Ireland, raised in France and now lives in Hertfordshire, so he's very confused. He was given the gift of golf by his grandfather when a young boy back in Ireland and while for a short time the passion flourished it was soon abandoned in his teenage years when wine, women and song revealed themselves to be much less hard work. The odd round was had in his 20's but when his grandfather passed away in 2010 he took the old set of clubs he found in the garage and started playing again more regularly. He soon rediscovered that childhood love and within six months was at a self-help group for golf addicts. He has been in trouble ever since.

He is a terrible golfer, but loves the game and playing the courses of any far-flung part of the world he finds himself in. He is a member at Essendon Country Club. Crawford is also a golf writer - click the links to read his stories on Choosing New Clubs and Golf Club Membership.
