MEET OUR HEAD TEACHING PROFESSIONAL
Rory was born in England but moved to Scotland when he was just 3 years old. At the age of 14 he discovered the game of golf and with Scotland having over 500 golf courses, it was of no surprise that Rory chose this industry. He was quickly selected to represent both his junior and gent’s county divisions before turning professional at the age of 21. Rory started his golf education at the Scottish Rural University where he achieved a higher National Diploma in Professional Golf Studies.
He then went on to complete his PGA training whilst working at Piperdam Luxury Golf Resort and graduated from the University of Birmingham gaining his degree with the PGA of Great Britain and Ireland.
More recently Rory has spent 2020 teaching full time with the GC Golf Academy, Scotland before moving to the Royal Golf Club in Bahrain as PGA Teaching Professional. Rory is passionate about coaching and has been teaching all levels of golfers for 7 years; he is also a very keen tournament player and gained great experience playing competitively.

RORY’S COACHING PHILOSOPHY
The player coach relationship is key in creating great communication, making the session more productive, enjoyable and retainable this produces the best results. No two swings are the same, figuring out what works best for the individual and giving them the knowledge to be their own best coach helps to transfer the lesson improvements into long lasting habits.
