My Coaching Story

Experienced. Certified. Supportive.

I’ve been a fully-certified PGA Professional since 1998, I spent a few years chasing the playing dream and competed in America playing mini tour events for 6 months before heading to Europe to play where I spent a couple of years playing, Challenge tour, Euro-pro and other mini tours before moving into coaching full time. I was in Europe for 10 years and had the pleasure of working with a number of players on the European Tour as satisfying as this was helping golfers of all abilities to achieve their personal and professional goals, helping a player achieve a goal of breaking 90 for the first time is just as rewarding as helping a tour player achieve status on the European tour.

I returned to New Zealand in 2008 and was the head professional at the Paraparaumu Beach golf club when is also took up a role with Golf New Zealand as one of three high performance coaches delivering the national golf coaching program, during this time I moved up to Rotorua as the Director of Golf at Rotorua Boys High School and the Waiariki Institute of Technology. Two years later I help out the PGA of NZ in setting up our own education and coaching programs where I was for 10 years, the last 5 being the executive officer for the PGA of NZ.

At the end of 2021 I finished up with the PGA and set up my coaching business Wellness Golf and use golf as the vehicle to enrich peoples lives.

The essence of my coaching is to facilitate self-growth by helping you identify the core challenges and setbacks in your golf, so that you can overcome them with confidence. I specialize in creating personalized plans and providing tools to guide you forward and achieve your desired goals.
