BEST MOMENT IN TEACHING: When caddying on LPGA Tour 2001/02  (Ladies Professional Golf Tour - number 1 tour for lady professionals) l gave a bunker lesson to Shani Waugh, after this lesson she was so happy she recommended me to other LPGA players and l was doing short game lessons to some of the best golfers in the world.



Every person is an individual, everyone cant swing the club the same way its impossible due to physique, flexibility and sporting ability.  So l work with trying to get the best results from what you have obviously with a structure of an excellent golf swing in mind.  People play golf for all different reasons, keeping it simple and fun is also very important.  There is quite a difference in my lessons if l am teaching a 7 year old child compared to a rocket scientist :-) Its very rewarding for a person of any age to see their improvement with golf, that’s why people of all ages enjoy this sport.  l try to keep my teaching techniques simple and easy to understand


PERSONAL: When not working or playing golf l enjoy spending time with my family. Hobbies of mine include tennis, although if you put it in golf terms l would be a greencard player in tennis, but its great fun.   l am a regular attender of the 'Australian Open' and 'Wimbledon' each year. Body boarding also is a passion of mine, catching a few waves out in the ocean, l was lucky enough to go to University on the Gold Coast in Australia, that has some of the best surf breaks in the world. Going out for a spicy dinner, a punt on the sports bet or drinks with friends is also nice.
