It could be said, and usually is, my writing is better than my golf - It would have to be given the very low standard of my golf - but my stubborn Scottish streak won’t let me give up playing this great game for a lifetime. I started playing the game in Scotland, then a wee bit in Canada, lots in South Africa and 30 plus years in New Zealand.

An author of several self-published books, the last one on golf , “Life’s Lessons Frae The Links” and quoting myself in the preface. “After 45 years of playing and reading about this game of golf it is time to sit down and write about it and pass on my thoughts.
My first two books had a motivational message and now it is time to use golf rather than travel as a metaphor for the lessons we all have to learn.”

In recent years turning my hand and eye to pictorially capturing the essence of this great game. I have created giclee originals and prints of well-known golf holes and golfing landmarks.
My ‘New Zealand ‘ collection’ contains works inspired by Jack’s Point, Titirangi and one entitled, ‘Autumn at Royal Auckland’.

The ‘Memories of Scotland’ collection includes, ‘Dawn at Royal Dornoch’, ‘Evening at Elie’ and ‘Sunset at The Machrie’.
