Originally from Cork in the South of Ireland, in 2010 I left a successful profession in the Information Technology industry to pursue a career in golf on the fabled and storied fairways of Scotland.

As a recipient of an R&A Scholarship, I completed a three-year Higher National Diploma in Golf Course Management at SRUC Elmwood based just 10 minutes outside of St. Andrews, Fife.

I have work experience at many of Scotland's finest links courses such as St. Andrews, Turnberry, Muirfield, Kingsbarns and Carnoustie and I was involved in many professional and amateur championship preparations including the 2013 and 2015 Open Championships. I spent a year working on the East Coast of the United States in 2014 at Baltusrol Golf Club in New Jersey and returned to the West Coast in the Spring of 2017 to work at Spyglass Hill Golf Course for that years AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

An avid golfer with an ever-changing handicap, my love for the game has brought me to over 350 golf course's all over the world so far. And counting. I hope to meet you on the LinksFairways journey.

See you on the fairways…..
