Nigel started coaching in Lincolnshire, England, at the age of 19 under the guidance of an England national coach. After graduating from the University of Birmingham with his PGA foundation degree in 2007, he took up the role of Head Professional of his hometown club in Boston, England. There, Nigel, ran the teaching academy at the club, bringing through promising juniors to both regional and national team selections.

Nigel continued his education in 2008, reading for a degree in Psychology with Sports Science and graduating second in his class from Nottingham Trent University. Nigel’s knowledge in psychology provides an added element to his coaching that is beneficial to all students.

In March 2015 Nigel made the move over to Singapore and began working at Heartland Golf School in Jurong Country Club. Nigel has provided lessons to players of all levels from beginners to professionals. He has developed a school golf program at Stamford American International School that now includes 100 golfers going through the school golf classes each week.
