My name is Sam Whitaker, I am a 27 year old Golfer based and attached at Blankney Golf Club in Lincolnshire. I started playing golf at a very young age and started having lessons at Blankney at only 4 years old. I have always loved playing golf and always dreamed of making it my career.
Alongside concentrating on golf, I attended Lincoln University in 2009 to do a masters degree in International Law, since then I have dedicated every day to improving and progressing with my golfing career.
I spent a few years competing in World Amateur Ranking Competitions in the U.K and Europe and a full list of my results can be emailed over should you wish to view them. I then turned professional at the beginning of the 2017 season and qualified to play on Europro Tour. I had some good results but unfortunately, due to funding I was only able to play in a few of the events. Early on in the season of 2018 I had an injury which took longer than expected to heal, and soon after that, my partner was diagnosed with cancer and I made the decision to take some time off to help care for her.
After a long winter of hard work and a difficult year of personal growth, I went back to Europro Q School at the start of 2019 and I finished in second in the first stage and 9th in the second stage to get my full playing card. I have since finished 27th and 41st and plan to keep on improving as much as possible. My aim for this year is to finish inside the top 20 order of merit and to attend European Tour Qualifying school in September. I would be extremely grateful for any advice or support to help me achieve my goals.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story and I would be happy to answer any further questions you may have.
I am currently sponsored by 2 big named brands and have been for a number of years, who provide most of my golfing equipment, although I am still asked regularly by other companies to consider trying their products.

Sam Vickers Golf PerformanceThe only regret i have is not going to see Sam sooner. I have played golf for as long as i can remember. I saw various sports professionals during my time as an amateur golfer to help with injury prevention and correction techniques. I didn’t really understand why i had to see anyone regarding mobility and strength, i concentrated on playing golf. Somebody then recommended Sam to me and i would never doubt the importance of a conditioning and performance coach again. Sam has played a huge role in my progress and has helped me achieve some of my best results. Apart from gaining 10 mile an hour swing speed and a huge amount of distance, i feel better and stronger than ever. I have had so many people ask about the difference in my game between 2017 and 2019 and the answer is Sam. Thank you for being a part of my team!
