Didsbury Golf Club professional James Curtis is delighted to welcome a new member of staff to his team.
He is Steffan Sullivan who is looking forward to his new role at Didsbury.
Steffan outlined his development in golf and his future ambitions: “I started playing golf at the age of 14 which gave me a different focus from football and I loved it.
“I was playing off single figures within two years and I was asked to be junior captain at Davenport Golf Club at the age of 18 which gave me lots of great experience.
“I played for the University of Central Lancashire team whilst studying Golf Performance which is where I got my first taste of coaching.
“I currently play in the Derbyshire and Cheshire League and also for the Davenport Scratch team.
“I have played golf in the USA and Europe including England, Wales, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Italy as well as California and Arizona which are my favourite ones.
“My favourite golfer is Tiger Woods – it’s a cliché I know but he transcended the sport into what it is today and I don’t think anyone will ever dominate the game of golf like that again.
“My aspirations are to do my PGA qualifications and become a golf professional in the next two years and to be playing the best golf I can- my current handicap is 2.3.
“In competitions I have had a few 68’s at Davenport and a two under par at Hazel Grove and my lowest score in a non-medal round is six under par.
“My favourite colour is red and my favourite food has got to be steak and chips with peppercorn sauce.
“I enjoy watching football and support Man United. I like keeping fit and listening to live music.
“I have missed golf during lockdown and I can’t wait to be back playing again soon and dusting off the cobwebs! I am really looking forward to my new role at Didsbury and meeting up with everyone.”
