Chris is enjoying his new role at Whitefield

CHRIS Bibby (pictured) has a long, wide and varied experience in professional golf  and he is looking forward to an exciting new experience as the PGA professional at Whitefield Golf Club.

Chris outlined his career to date and his plans in his new role: “I first joined the PGA in 1994 working for Peter Kenwright at Haydock Park Golf Club then in 1998-2000 I played on the Mastercard  and Players Tours along with the European Challenge Tour events.

“Unfortunately I couldn’t maintain my playing card so in 2000 I left to join the Abu Dhabi Airport Golf Links then followed this by working in the USA with some of the world’s top coaches and learning my trade and since becoming a short game coach.

“The people I would like to thank are firstly my mum and dad for all the love and support they have shown me over the years and my wife and three children, Katie (15), Matilda (six) and Stanley (two) just for being there and making me smile every day.

“Other people I would like to thank are Karl Morris as it was Karl’s psychology that got me out of my wheelchair after three years and helping me start moving again.

I would also like to thank Andrew Murray and Phil Archer for all of their support and help in raising money for the equipment I needed so that I have a better daily home life.

“Last but not least I would like to thank the President of Whitefield GC for giving me the chance to take on such a fantastic role at the club.

“It is a role that I love and I have been made extremely welcome by the members and I really enjoyed going over to Ireland to watch The Glancy at Edmonstown.

“The facilities at Whitefield are fantastic in helping me to develop my coaching school along with the course being in excellent condition.

“My plans for the future are to continue to offer the best services I can to the golf club and we have The Glancy at Whitefield in 2020 so I am planning for that.

“I am also planning on developing the already excellent Short Game Zone and also having three-four undercover driving range bays on the practice area so that it can be used in poor weather.

“My goal is to make Whitefield GC one of the best golf clubs and teaching locations in the area and for more information checkout my website and sign up to my weekly newsletter.”
