Kieron Fowler came to Lyme Regis golf club five year's ago where he quickly gained the support and confidence of many members with his coaching lessons, from novice to single figure golfer, writes Richard Jackman.
Kieron also played on the Europro tour for a couple of years, where he had a few good results, but hadn't made enough money to stay on the tour and didn't have a sponsor.
He decided to turn his attention to another side of the golfing industry and start a Professional Golfers Association degree.
The PGA degree broadened his knowledge training him in many areas, including; business, finance, sports science, golf rules, custom fitting and golf coaching, whilst also giving him the opportunity to compete with some of the countries best golfers in top tournaments all around the UK.
Kieron was very fortunate that Lyme Regis head coach Duncan Driver gave him the opportunity to start his degree, while also continuing his respected coaching with Lyme members.
Now, after three year's of hard work, Kieron is a fully qualified PGA professional finishing in the top 10 of all the 2019 UK graduates.
He is now dedicating himself to playing and coaching this season and has already played in five events, with two wins, a fourth place, a sixth place and is in the final qualifying for Europro tour.
This three years of hard work did leave time for some play and while studying he also managed to win the Dorset & Wiltshire Order of merit in 2017 & 2018; finish sixth in the PGA assistant championship 2017; win the year two Assistant of the Year in the South West and he also won year three Assistant of the Year in the South West.
Looking ahead, Kieron says: "I would like to thank all the members of Lyme Regis golf club for their fantastic support over the past few years and for their continued support with my playing career."
