I’m the founder of Golfing Focus, a website dedicated to helping regular amateur golfers of all standards maximize their enjoyment of the great game of golf.

I started to play at the age of 4, following in the footsteps of my three older brothers (one of whom is a professional golfer and former first-team All-American!) and I have been enjoying playing and watching golf for over 40 years – longer than I would care to admit!

Golf has given me a huge amount.

I have been lucky enough to play off single figures for all of my adult life and enjoyed playing some of the best golf courses in the world including the Old Course at St.Andrews, the Ailsa Course at Turnberry, Royal Troon, Carnoustie, Kingsbarns Golf Links, Royal County Down, Pinehurst No.2, the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island and Valhalla Golf Club to name but a few.

More importantly however over the years, my biggest fortune has been to make lifelong friends across the world simply by virtue of playing golf.

While having a young family means I now don’t always get to play as much as I would like I remain fascinated by this great game, and particularly by the mental and physical aspects that set apart different standards of players. was created simply as a place to allow me to try and find answers to common golfing questions asked, and problems faced, by all standards of golfer.

And also as an excuse to convince my family that they should be joining me on the fairways as much as possible!

This site is simply where I share everything I have experienced and learned through enjoying and researching this great game with friends, family, and competitors.

I hope you enjoy it!
