Meet the NCG team
Alex Perry – Digital editor of nationalclubgolfer.com. Our resident Cornishman loves to remind the team about his south-west roots and his favourite place to play is Bude & North Cornwall. Currently masquerading off a handicap of 14, he’s a great fourball partner. Arguably less so in foursomes.
Dan Murphy – Sports Publications’ content director. An undisputed lover of links golf. He recently played 13 rounds in eight days on a trip to the north, west and east coasts of Ireland. His pitching was arguably even worse on his return than when he set off. Dan plays off a handicap of three at Alwoodley and can recite a phenomenal number of arcane statistics about the Open Championship.
Mark Townsend – Chief features writer. Has a handicap of 8 at Headingley due to a wonky short game, general timidness and mental fragility. Has an encyclopaedic knowledge of golf in the mid-to-late 1980s.
Steve Carroll – Club golf editor. Steve is National Club Golfer’s man in the clubhouse. He is convinced one day he will reach a single figure handicap. Until that time, he’ll continue to struggle off 12 and three-putt his way around courses all over the country.
Hannah Holden – Equipment and instruction editor. Hannah plays off +1 at Fixby and averages at least six competitive rounds a week between April and October. She last missed a fairway in the winter of 2016-17.
James Broadhurst – NCG’s production editor is a wary novice in the golfing world. Drawing on his poor performances as a junior at Hexham and an outstanding career on Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005 on the Playstation 2, James is slowly working his way towards gaining his first handicap.
Harvey Jamison – Social media editor. Harvey is often to be seen on camera – and don’t you know it after watching his morning routine and the scientific application of hair product. Owns some of the tightest shorts and trousers in golf and loves to mix with the stars at tour events.
Joe Hughes – Staff writer. A recent addition to the team having graduated from Huddersfield University. Developing his knowledge of women’s golf and also secretly working on his handicap.
