Personal History:

I was born in Sydney but began my schooling in Singapore and later in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It was whilst growing up in Asia that I found I had a passion for golf. After moving back to Sydney, my golf career continued to develop and I begun tasting major amateur success from the age of 20. After that I began to travel to tournaments all across the world and made many great friends along the way.

Home course:

I am currently representing Druid Hills Golf and Country Club as one of the resident Touring Professionals at the club.

Golf History:

My Dad was undoubtedly my inspiration to golf. It all began when I was around 7 years old and I would tag along with him to the driving range. He put the club in my hand and told me to hit it and the rest is history

Fast forward a few years to having moved back to Australia from Asia.   Upon seeing the depth and strength of golfing talent we as a country possess, I knew I needed to do more.  I knew that if I wanted to become a professional golfer I would have to start to make golf a bigger part of my life than the once or twice a week trip to the range and the 1-2 times per week round of golf with my parents. At around the age of 14 or 15, I started to put daily work into my game and accelerate the reduction of my handicap.  It took me some time before I tasted success, having played reasonably well through the latter stages of my junior amateur career but not really having any kind of success for a few years after that.  It wasn’t until I was at the age of 21, that I felt I was a competitive amateur player regularly playing in National selection events, Vardon events and major pennants but was still yet to have any kind of breakthrough on the major amateur scene. Then in 2006 I took the trip down to Tasmania to play the Australian Amateur and everything changed. I was overwhelmed when at the end of the week the trophy was in my hands, only validating all of the hard work I had put in. That would turn out to be one of the most influential weeks of my golfing life.

Following that major amateur title, I went on to have a very successful amateur career which included titles at the Riversdale Cup (2007), The Singapore Amateur (2007), The Tasmanian Open (2008) and a Runner up finish in The British Amateur Championship in 2007, narrowly missing a place at Augusta that year.

I went on to turn pro in November 2008 and have since played mainly on the Asian Tour, as well as playing one season on the European and European Challenge Tours as well as a year on the PGA Tour China Series and various tournaments on the Australasian Tour.
