Personal Statement

Since starting golf my aim has been to be a Tour Professional. During 2023, I have realised how much it would take to achieve this and have therefore made sacrifices in my life, I will continue to do this. I have focused on S&C with a TPI coach, I practice golf every day and manage my education well with good predicted grades. Since I started in the gym, I have worked very hard on my posture, my physical strength and my diet. This change has meant that I have not had the season I wished for in 2023, I know these improvements will help me in the long run. Despite not seeing the benefits of a handicap reduction I have maintained consistency despite changing my posture so much. The last year has taught me that hard work pays off and I am committed to developing further to fulfil my aim. I thrive on being part of a team, something I have experienced for my whole life as a keen sportsman, and I particularly like working with other dedicated individuals. I was delighted this year to be accepted onto Foresight Sports UpNext Player Development Programme which will contribute to further improvements.  I am hopeful that I will be successful in coming to the US to continue my studies whilst playing a higher level of golf which will then support me becoming a Tour Pro. I am committed to continuing my journey by working hard and focusing on all areas of the game. I am also very driven to underpin my golf with a good solid degree which will develop me as a person.
