Playing History


Tim had a very successful pennant career with Rosanna Golf Club and was a senior club champion in 2000 and 2001 and the Heritage golf club in 2001, before doing a traineeship in golf in 2003-2005. It was during this period Tim's game took off, winning three state titles as a trainee, winning the QLD Championships in 2003 and 2004, tying greg Norman's record, and falling 1 shot short of breaking Greg Normans title of three in a row in 2005

Tim was inducted into the Victorian Institute of Sport in late 2003 after a breakthrough season, and remained in the V.I.S for 5 years.

Tim spent 2006 and 2007 applying his trade on the Australasian Tour and  pro-am circuit in Australia, where he broke an Australia record with a record 10 pro-am wins in the 2007 season. He then qualified for  the Canadian Tour in April 2007 with  his confidence high, and set a record that year for scoring average.

He nearly won the 2007 NSW Open hitting the lead with 9 to play, before fading away, but used this experience and went onto win the NSW PGA in 2008, knocking off Peter Senior, Michael Long and Andre Stolz, for his breakthrough win at 16 under par, as well as a bunch of other top 10's


A few weeks later, at the Australian Open, Tim found himself on the difficult side of the draw, doing well just making the cut, before going 12 under his next 27 holes to hit the lead with 9 to play, before a disappointing 11th finish


After a big 2008, 2009 started out even better, Tim won the IFQ

( International Final Qualifying) putting him in the field for the 2009 Open Championship at Turnberry (or British Open as some know it) his first major


after a night of celebrating Tim was back on the road, and next up Tim finished 6 shots off the win at The European Tour Johnnie Walker Classic, in a star studded field, playing with Craig Parry and Colin Montgomerie in the last round, and finishing comfortably ahead of both 


Tim was opening doors onto tours around the world, when injuries started to creep in, His next 2 events were on the Nationwide Tour, where a knee injury severely effected his game.

Tim took the next few months off, to rest his body ahead of the July Open Championship, where he headed back to Canada to Play a few warm up events, a 6th at the Vancouver Open an ideal warm up for the Open

​After an incredible week at the Open,Tim missed the cut by 4 shots, unfortunately tee times of 4:07 pm and 11:07am meant Tim had the afternoon gale both days. It was a disappointing result but playing with Tom Watson, David Duval, Colin Montgomerie just to name a few did wonders

for Tim"s Confidence​. His next event was the Montreal Open, where an Opening 65 blew the tournament apart, but that night, a recurring knee injury returned. Tim battled through the remainder of the season, with moderate success, before a new injury, an ankle injury popped up, after 3 months of no improvement Tim opted for Surgery, ruling out the 2010 and half of 2011. The operation went ok, but he lost the ability to point his toes in his left foot, and this effects maintaining posture through the ball, and playing off un even lies. In his time off during injury, it was Tims love for coaching that took off, with his client base growing

the thought of hotel food, missing friends and family, the  300 +nights a year  in hotels didnt sound so appealing.

Tim has had some decent results since, but his body won't allow regular play. A top 10 in the NSW PGA, a 20 th, and a 21 st at the Australian Open just a few, but multiple knee operations since, have forced him to chase his love of coaching. Tim still holds an Australasian Tour card for 2016 but he barely tees it up, as his passion for his students has become his focus.
