Craig started playing golf at the age of eight when his Dad took him to Brampton Golf Club to caddy and to have a go! From that point golf has been a massive passion of Craig's.
As well as playing many other sports at a young age, golf took over when he had his first proper taste of success in qualifying to play for England school boys in 1993 at the age of 17.
In 1996 Craig got the chance to start his PGA training at Eden Golf Club. This took three and a half years to complete which gave Craig the chance to practice, improve and learn more about the golf swing. The following few years Craig played full time playing Europro tour, Asian tour and qualifying to play in four European tour events, including the Volvo PGA Championship twice. Despite a few attempts to gain his entry onto the European tour qualifying school, an opportunity arose to teach at Carlisle Driving Range in November 2006. At this point the driving range was a Peter Mitchell Golf Academy, so having the chance to learn from a European tour player and coach has proved invaluable for Craig's teaching experience.
In the 5 years Craig had at Carlisle Driving Range he has taught a wide range of pupils from beginners to professionals. During this time he has also had some of his best playing achievements, greatest of which was winning the GB&I Club Professionals Championships in 2011.
Craig then moved on to teach at Penrith Driving Range for the next three and a half years where he developed his teaching, incorporating GC2 and HMT technology for ball and club head reading.
Craig now teaches at Carlisle Golf Club.
Teaching is Craig's main passion. He firmly believing that there is no text book golf swing and that each individual lesson must be tailored to that pupils needs and capabilities.
