From North Berwick in Scotland, Steve began playing golf at 12 and quickly found himself hooked on the game. Playing off scratch at 22 and having represented county and club at boys and adult level, he made the decision to turn professional at the Open qualifying venue Musselburgh Golf Club in Edinburgh only a few miles from Muirfield. As a qualified PGA professional, Steve played full time for 6 years before moving to the Roxburghe Golf Club where he continued honing his coaching skills and is now head of instruction, a Scottish golf development centre coach and a member of the Bunkered Magazine Tuition Panel.
During his time as head of instruction Steve has coached at the Handa Wales Open on the European Tour and been an integral part of coaching youth development to a level of national academy standard.
Steve has maintained his career development from passing his degree in golf studies with Merit to becoming a PGA level 3 coach. Steve has furthered his development through courses in sports psychology, custom fitting, and golf swing principles and is currently studying to become an advanced professional in the game. Steve aims to build lesson programs and practice programs to help all levels of player improve through swing analysis allowing the player to concentrate on their game with easy access to coaching through face to face and interactive coaching.
The Roxburghe Golf Club holds Junior Golf Clinics during the summer holidays. These covers the whole golf swing over a period of two weeks (Mon, Wed, Fri for 1 hour, twice per day for a fortnight). Steve uses a method called "The Backward Chaining Method" which starts with the shortest movement in the swing and continues over the weeks to construct the entire golf swing.
