Assistant Golf Professional
Born and raised in Britain, Simon has had a multi-faceted career since becoming a member of the British PGA in 1996.
As a Jack Nicklaus / Jim Flick Coach in the late 1990’s Simon coached everybody from Beginners through to European Tour Professionals including David Park, Garry Houston and Charles Challin before pursuing a playing career himself, predominantly in Europe from 2000-2004. During this time, Simon would represent Great Britain in the President of Russia’s Cup in Moscow, Russia.
After a shoulder injury and two subsequent surgeries ended his playing career, Simon returned to coaching and spent nearly a decade in Junior Golf Development back home in Britain before taking on the role of Director of Asia-Pacific Player Development for Tiger Group (Golf) in Shanghai, China. Simon coached and mentored several promising young players during this time and still coaches players including Liu Jiao and Yu Rong on the China LPGA Tour as well as mentoring Leslie Cloots on the LPGA Symetra Tour. Simon is also coach to World Long Drive Record Holder Paul Slater (884).
Simon has been based in the US for the last two years and comes to us via our sister facility, The Snowmass Club in Colorado.
