Jack's Top Tip

Always try your best

Jack's Bio

My first full season as a professional, 2010, was a fantastic experience but also a great one for me as I won the prestigious Essex PGA Open at Frinton Golf Club in May. I play on the Europro and Jamega tours and had a good 1st year by finishing 69th on the Europro order of merit. I also played in a lot of pro-ams in Essex and in the East region where I had an extremely good year by winning more than 8 pro-ams (individually) and a handful of seconds .

When I’m not playing golf, I attend the gym to keep my fitness levels up, as well as working very hard on my golf game to improve in different areas working with my coaches Paul Barham (Stock Brook Manor) and Paul Ashwell (Wyboston Lakes).

I’ve set a target for the next 5 years to become a full member on the European Tour and to be looked upon by the younger generation.

Jack's Junior Golf

I started my journey into golf at the tender age of six when my dad got me involved in Saturday morning lessons at my 1st golf club, Three Rivers. I enjoyed it so much, I wanted to carry it on and that’s why I love the game to this day.

I left Three Rivers in 2000 and joined Chelmsford Golf Club where I played in junior club competitions and progressed onto the men’s competitions, I won my first men’s competition at the age of 13, The Pender Salver, of which I was very proud.

I got noticed by Essex and they asked me to attend trials, I impressed, and they picked me and I represented Essex for the first time at the age of 13.

I was an Essex regular all through the age groups (under 13s, u 15s, u 16s, u18s, u21s, Men’s) where my playing record was very good. I also captained the u 18 team which was a real honour. I was also in the u 21 and Men’s county winning teams for the South East league finals in 2007.

Achievements as an amateur golfer:

• Lords Golf Club Champion (2006 & 2009)
• Essex Mens Champion 2007
• Essex Colts Champion 2007
• Essex Boys Champion 2007
• Essex Boys Foursomes Champion 2007
• Faldo Series U18 Champion 2007 (Celtic Manor, Wales)
• Faldo Series Of Asia U18 Runner Up 2007 (Mission Hills, Shenzen, China)
• Travelled with the England U21 Squad in 2008
