I started playing golf at the age of 10 at Kirkhill Golf Club. I progressed through the amateur ranks, representing Scotland multiple times and reaching the pinnacle of the amateur game playing in The Eisenhower Trophy in 2012.
I turned professional in 2013, playing Europro Tour and mini-tour events in the USA for the first couple of years. I earned a European Challenge Tour Card in 2015 through Q-School and played on the European Challenge Tour from 2016 until 2018.
In 2020, I started the PGA Foundation Degree to further my knowledge of all aspects of the sport and joined the team at the Kings Links Golf Centre in 2021.
