Michael More Golf Lessons
I started playing golf at 11 years of age when I joined Porters Park Golf Club as a junior member. Football was my number one sport at the time, but I discovered that I had a natural talent for golf and got a tremendous pleasure in striking a golf ball. When I was 12, I discovered a real passion for the game and won numerous junior club competitions throughout the year, and it was at that age I wanted to be a professional golfer in the future.
My Handicap was 28 when I first joined Porters Park aged 11 in 1997. Within two years I managed to get down to a 6 handicap. I won numerous junior opens within the southeast region and including the Hertfordshire Boys Intermediate Championship in 1999. This victory propelled me to represent the Hertfordshire County Boys under 16’s. I did not just represent my home county as a player; I was also their captain. From that day I have managed to represent Hertfordshire at all levels from the under 16’s all the way to the senior team.
In 2006, I was recruited by the golf coach of Nova Southeastern University, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. At this time I was a plus 2 handicap. He offered me a scholarship to study in Florida while representing the University at golf. I accepted the offer and when I finished my first year in the summer of 2007, I came back to the UK full of confidence. I won three events, including 5 top-five finishes, one of which was the English Amateur Championship held at the prestigious Royal St. Georges Golf Club in Kent.
In 2008 I managed to help my university win two college tournaments and most importantly help them to qualify for its first National Championship Tournament in Houston, Texas. The team came 5th out of twenty teams throughout the nation, and I finished in the top 20 after 72 holes.
I graduated in May 2010 gaining full honours in Sports Management and Psychology. Once I achieved my degree it was my decision to turn professional
