Alistair moved to Surrey in early 2012 to secure his first Head Professional role at Reigate Heath Golf Club, arguably the finest 9 hole course in England. Having enjoyed a successful two years in Surrey, Alistair returned to the South West in May 2014 to take up the post of Head Professional at Tiverton Golf Club.
An enthusiastic coach who combines modern coaching theory with a relaxed and friendly demeanour, he likes to keep his lessons simple and easy to understand. Alistair has always been a keen custom fitter and strongly believes that every golfer should play with clubs that are perfectly matched to their own swing.
Alongside his duties at Tiverton, Alistair enjoys playing golf competitively and regularly tees it up in County and West Region PGA events. Alistair is the 2017 Captain of the PGA in Devon.
A member at Tiverton for 10 years, Tom successfully represented the club at all levels and ultimately got his handicap down to 1. Having now turned professional he is undertaking his PGA training under Alistair whilst working hard on his golf game. This hard work was rewarded when Tom recorded his first professional victory in just his fith event as a pro.
