What does your standard training week involve?
A standard day in an off week looks something like below...
- 6:00am - 7:30am: gym focusing on strength or power training
- 8:00am - 10:00am: playing golf on course practice
- 10:00am - 12:00pm: on range working on my technique
- 12:00pm -1:00pm: lunch
- 1:00pm - 3:00pm: Short game area, working on all sorts of shots and competition games
- 3:00pm - 4:00pm: Putting
- 4:00pm - 5:00pm: Either massage or physio session (depending on what I’ve done rest of week)
Where is your favourite place to train?
I love to train at home, the Victoria Golf Club.
What is your favourite 2XU garment? When do you use it and why?
Compression socks for travel on the plane are my absolute favourite - if I forget them, my ankles looks and feel massive and takes me a lot longer to recover!
What is your favourite training accessory?
Heart rate Montior and Run Keeper app.
What has been the toughest experience in your career and what did you learn from it?
When I signed for an incorrect scorecard at the British Open. It was at the time the toughest thing to take, yet I learned the next week that my expectations were at there absolute lowest and I won! So I learned a lot.
What’s the most common training mistake you see on the circuit? Any suggestions on how to avoid it?
To practice something that you 'heard' on the range! I would only listen to your team, and your team only!
What motivates you to train and race harder?
The fact that I want to be the best I can be and I want to go to the 2016 Olympics.
How do you balance your training and racing life with life outside the sport?
I try to make a plan at the beginning of the week on my training and things outside golf. And I make sure im trying to fit in things I love outside golf, like cycling, seeing friends and family. It makes me happy and I know if I’m happy I’ll play well!
What type of nutritional supplement do you find most helpful (either for training or competition)?
The only thing I use is protien powder but I use it as a form of recovery after gym session.
Best and worst thing about being a professional athlete:
I get to play the game I love, and travel the world - I can’t think of anything better really!
In five years time, I'll be:
