About Simon

A a born and bred sportsman, Simon was a promising footballer on the books of York City and Scarborough as a teenager, and the early indication was that he would follow in his uncle Terry’s footballing footsteps. However, he was encouraged to take up golf by his brother, Nick, and by the age of 16 had achieved a scratch rating.

Simon says “I’m delighted to be supporting Cardiomyopathy UK, the specialist charity supporting families affected by cardiomyopathy. This cause is very close to my heart having being diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy out of the blue which has changed my life. ‚ÄčThis heart muscle disease is not rare and can be fatal and many there are living with the limitations it brings or are still undiagnosed.  I want to help raise awareness for this charity which is a lifeline for those affected by it and their families.”
