John started playing aged 12 at Shawhill GC, Chorley and went straight from school to work at Shawhill GC under Ian Evans. He then worked at Hurlston Hall GC from 1994 to 1997 and then was fortunate enough to receive sponsorship from Kammac plc which enabled him to play full time from 1997 to 2000 during which time he became PGA Qualified.
