Where did you grow up?

Bray County, Wicklow, Ireland

Favorite Golf Course

I guess I best say Killeen Castle GC as my favorite course as it's now my home, and was venue of the 2011 Solheim Cup and also the 2010 to 2013 Irish Opens.

Golfing and caddie background:

Lived beside WoodBrook GC; home of the Carroll's Irish Open in the 70s and 80s, and I started caddying there at the age of 12 for pocket money.

What do you love about caddying?

I've had a lot of success with different players on different tour so love to see how the game can be played many different ways to try to achieve the same results.

Interesting caddie story:

In 2001, myself and 3 of my brothers all caddied on the European Tour. Matthew for Jean van de Velde, Myles for Peter Barker, Brian for Dean Robertson, and I was caddying for Silvio Grappasonnie.
