Hi my name is Piers Ward and I was born in a town called Wolverhampton which is actually now a city! No judging my age! I played multiple team sports to a good level, and loved the atmosphere and camaraderie with team mates. I actually didn’t enjoy individual sports that much. I didn’t start playing golf until I was 15 years of age, but I was instantly hooked because of the technical nature of the sport. I joined Oxley Park golf club in 1993 which is actually where I met friend, and now business partner, Andrew John Proudman.
I have always been fascinated by the golf swing. After years of having golf lessons, I grew to really enjoy experimenting with my own swing, sometimes to my own detriment, but I love finding out what does and doesn’t work. I became a professional in 1998 and qualified with distinction in coaching. I was off to the races after that and started coaching 7 days a week at Oxley.
