In 2013, Ben enjoyed a fantastic year claiming the coveted Carris Trophy – defeating now European Tour professional; Renato Paratore in a play-off.  In the same year he was the only player to record six wins out of six at the Home Internationals for England.  2015 and 2016 saw Ben cement his position as one of England’s finest young players with a number of fine performances both individually and for his country.

Ben turned professional in February 2017, recording five out of his first six rounds as a professional under par before easily qualifying for the MENA Tour – closing with the best 18-hole score of the entire field on the final day; 4-under par 68.

With an outstanding attitude and steely focus we believe Ben has a huge future in the game of golf and should be added to an impressive list of “players to watch”
