Rob Humphrey - Head PGA Professional
Having been a relatively late starter to golf at age fourteen, Rob quickly discovered his love and natural ability for the game and turned professional in 1993, aged nineteen. Since gaining his PGA Professional status Rob has developed a wealth of experience, including establishing an extremely successful Teaching Academy at Hoebridge Golf Centre and then working as Senior Professional at The Richmond Club.

Aside from the management of golf operations, Rob is a highly proficient coach as well, using his further training in Golf Psychology to improve the game of his pupils. A former Surrey Open champion, Rob is keen to get stuck into the clubs playing calendar, so beware all competitors in the Captain & Pro challenge!


Jo Taylor - Assistant PGA Professional
Jo is originally from Colchester and was a member at Colchester Golf Club between 2003 and 2010. She played girls and ladies county 1st team golf for Suffolk before turning Professional at the end of 2010. She studied Applied Golf Management Studies at the University of Birmingham, graduating in 2011 with a 2:1, and is now completing an MSc in Sports Coaching again at the University of Birmingham.

Chris Olney - Assistant
Chris has been a member of Tyrrells Wood since 2007 and has been part of the Pro Shop team for the past three years. After leaving school in 2009, Chris decided to pursue a career in golf at the Sussex College of Golf based in West Sussex (Lindfield Golf Club). During his time there he would spend nine weeks out in Spain as part of a winter programme at Club De Golf Bonmont in Costa Daurada.

Chris qualified from the College in 2011. With a current playing handicap of 3, Chris is looking to join the PGA where trainees complete a three year Foundation Degree in Professional Golf Studies, accredited by the University of Birmingham.
