What do you enjoy most about the game and the business of golf?
I enjoy how our industry enables you to meet new people and build relationships. I think this is a very important skill that aids in your personal development. The variety of people, experiences and situations you encounter on a daily basis is fun.

What or who influenced you in becoming a Golf Professional?
First of all my family for introducing me to the game. Secondly, we have a family friend back in Scotland who was a golf pro that I used to work for during the school holidays and a local pro in Red Deer who helped me start my career here in Canada.

Professional soccer player.

Best one I have played so far is the Geronimo course at Desert Mountain in Scottsdale.

69 at Priddis Greens (Raven) & Cottonwood.
