Golf is a safe sport, but accidents happen all too frequently. A driven golf ball can fly at up to 150 mph and leave impact victims with catastrophic injuries.
‘Rub of the Green’ is no longer an excuse for negligence on the golf course.
I understand how important it is to provide unambiguous evidence and informed opinions to assist the decisions of instructing Solicitors, the Court and the Claimant or Defendant.
Courts require expertise to be applied rigorously in reports which are impartial, insightful and thoroughly researched.
My expertise has been accumulated through formal experience and detailed knowledge of the subject matter at all levels.
I offer a unique combination of golf expertise with a background at the elite levels of amateur and professional tournament golf, plus the design and development of golf facilities and the application of safety procedures and accident prevention.
For three years I held the post of Chief Executive of the Golf Foundation, the national development body for under-18s within the sport. I have presented papers and delivered safety and development talks to the leading administrators of golf in Europe.
I provide expert testimony on behalf of the Claimant or Defendant in cases of personal injury on the golf course and in loss of career prospects within golf from non-golfing accidents.
My methodology is to conduct rigorous analysis and research and to refine this to provide clarity on the important facts and expert opinion.
I have been instructed in over two hundred cases including several high value cases.
I have presented evidence in Court on more than thirty occasions including a landmark case in the Court of Session in Edinburgh.
My clients include some of the most important firms of solicitors in the UK.
I have also provided expert consultancy services in Local Authority Planning Applications and Appeals where residential and commercial developments are proposed or located close to golf facilities.
