It began from an early age when George developed his admiration for golf.
I have seen his dedication and commitment unfold and a career path which he has paved out and has high hopes to achieve.
Here is a 15 year old boy who knows the direction in which he is working and what it takes to get there.
Through tireless evenings, rainy days and strict training regime George still has a burning desire since he was 5 years old.
This tenacious young boy is my son. Raised loving the game and now the sky has become the limit!

Among other sports golf began to take precedence when George was only 5 years old. At aged 7 he won his county HSBC Wee Wonders competition and qualified for the regional final, this lit his drive and passion for tournament golf. As years went by at age 11 he was selected to play for the Hampshire U14 County team and pursued to play at 12 years old for the U16's.
Unconditionally representing his squad with heart, skill and respect for his opponents, captaining Hampshire on many occasions and his outstanding playing record speaks for itself.
