"Having played golf for close to 20 years I have a real passion for helping golfers improve their game. My aim in a lesson is to make the process as simple as possible for players. There will be a focus in assisting the player to understand their golf swing in more detail and figure out why shots go awry on the golf course.
My own work experience has taken me to several different places. I completed a Bachelor of Science in Sports Management in UCD in 2015, I have worked in Boca West Country Club Florida for a season, I have also worked in Adare Manor Golf Resort for several years in golf operations. I managed McGuirk's Golf Tralee store for over two years, prior to my current position of assistant PGA pro in Castletroy Golf Club."
