When did you start playing and where?
I grew up in Bath, England and we lived by the 13th green at Kingsdown Golf Club. So ever since I can remember I messed around with a golf club and my 10th birthday present was Junior membership of the club, as this was the minimum age someone could join. My first 3 cards for h’cap soon after this birthday were 122,121 and 119! The h’cap secretary gave me a 34 h’cap which I was so proud of (normally they start at 36) and many years later I asked him why he didn’t give me 36 and he said that he’d seen me practicing and playing so much he wanted to encourage me – which he definitely did – thank you Mr Broom!
How often do you play?
Unfortunately, almost never – I have a young family and with working 24/7 in golf I feel guilty if I go and play in my time off. However, I mess around with my 3-year-old daughter and hopefully when she’s older we will get chance to play and enjoy this great game together.
What's been your best-ever round?
My ‘tournament career’ finished a long time ago but I was relatively successful as a Junior in England and managed to represent England at Schoolboy International level for 2 years. In 1987 at the Carris Trophy at Moor Park (this was the biggest Junior strokeplay tournament in Europe at the time) I was joint leader after the first round and this was reported in the National newspaper 'The Daily Telegraph' with the headline 'Wallett cashes in'!
