Guy is a Class A member of the British PGA and has been playing golf since the age of 13. Upon leaving school he embarked on what would turn out to be a lifelong career in the golf business.

His formative years were spent in several private golf clubs in England whilst studying for his British PGA qualification. During his 20’s he spent several years playing on the MasterCard/Challenge Tour and Euro Tour.

Guy’s understanding of the fundamentals of the golf swing is exceptional and having spent over 20 years teaching golf, his style of teaching is certainly not a ‘one size fits all’ approach. He understands that every golf student has different requirements and abilities and this is what drives his teaching methods. Players of all levels benefit from his straightforward approach and unique understanding of the game of golf, its principles, its equipment and techniques.

Guy is Head Coach for Troon’s Ping Junior Interclub Team and Elite Masters program.
