Jacob stared golf at Canford Manga Golf Club at the fairly late age of 13 and became addicted quickly to the game.
He got his first handicap of 11 just months after starting the game and quickly became a single figure golfer within the first 18 months and was made the Junior Captain there in early 2016.
After the sudden closure of Canford Magna Jacob moved to Broadstone Golf Club. He was appointed Junior Captain in late 2016 and had great success in the Junior, Hardy A and scratch teams. He made his first appearance in the Dorset U'18 Junior Squad in the 2017 season and managed to win the 4 counties strokeplay championships that year also.
Jacob decided to pursue a career in professional golf and started his PGA degree straight after school. He was given a trainee assistant position in the Broadstone Pro Shop by Adrian in October 2017 and hasn't looked back since!
He plays most of his golf on The PGA South West and Wales region but is looking to progress onto Europro Tour, The Challenge Tour and the Main European Tour in the near future. As part of this season, Jacob has been working with GolfCatcher.net to secure invitationals into some of the EuroPro tour events and kicks off at Brocket Hall this May. It is an exciting adventure and the partnership gives an insight into a young pros life.
