Handicap: 3

Home Club: New Club, St Andrews

Mizuno #YourGame2016 goal: To reduce my handicap and have a chance to win scratch events.

I’ve been playing since I was 12. I got down to 4 when I was 17, but have hit a bit of a plateau. I’d like to do well in the club championship this year, and progress up through the university teams – I fluctuate between the seconds and thirds right now. Getting my iron flight down a bit would help.

Strengths
Wedge play has become a major asset as well as my irons being a strong point. My game is mainly based on breaking down a hole into hitting the fairway, then the green and if the putt drops, that’s great, but a two-putt is always good. So I feel my approach to the golf course is my strongest asset.

Weaknesses
I would say that my woods are a major issue, with my drives not enjoying a consistent flight or distance. I feel like my current clubs aren’t right for me, while there are some technical issues that need ironing out too.
