Andrew, a world-renowned PGA Pro, was a Ryder Cup player in the infamous Battle of Brookline 1999, where he played Tiger Woods on that fateful Sunday. He was also a member of Scotland’s Dunhill Cup winning team in 1995 and won the Australian PGA Championship for the second time on his way to the Australasian Order of Merit in 1997/98.
The 1994 Scottish and Australian PGA Champion has won twice on the European Tour, the 1998 Qatar Masters and the 2001 Great North Open. He represented Scotland in five World Cups and coached the winning European Palmer Cup team in 2014.
Today, Andrew is busy working with SKY Sports as an on-course commentator and analyst, and as Co-Founder and Playing Director at Tour Pro Experience Golf Schools (TPEGS). With over 25 years’ experience as an amateur and a professional golfer, he has travelled the globe learning from many different customs and cultures, playing a game he loves with the best golfers in the world. We’re honoured to have Andrew as a Patron.
