SHARE THE JOURNEY
Since the day that I first gripped my Ben Hogan 5 iron that my Dad shortened for me at the age of 6 and the magic of this great game entered my body, I've dreamed of playing on the world's biggest stages. Now in my final tilt to do just that, share the journey with me as I strive to reach the heights of the world's major professional golf tours. Through this website and through my other social media platforms, you can step through every part of the experience as I chase my goal of becoming one of the worlds best golfers.
ABOUT DESTINATION TOUR PRO
For over 35 years, I have chased a little white ball around the golf course. It's been a life long love affair and like any relationship I've been through plenty of peaks and troughs with the game. It's been my crutch during difficult times, my release from the stresses of everyday life. It's also been the subject of my dreams for longer than I can remember. There's nothing I've wanted more than to make my living from the game. Now, at a time of life when most of the best players the game has ever known are winding down their careers, I'm winding mine up and having that last ditch attempt to play on one of the world's major professional tours. Through this website and my other social media platforms, you can come along for the ride.
WHO AM I?
My name is Glenn Bedford and in 2017 I turned 43 years old. I have two kids, daughters who are also addicted to golf. I've worked for most of my career with global investment banks and asset managers but had a couple of breaks to work in the golf industry and in my own business. I have a university degree in marketing and an MBA. I live in Surrey, UK with my partner Raquel and I am the proud owner of two passports from Australia and the Netherlands. Outside of golf I love most sports but especially Australian Rules Football and my beloved Hawthorn Hawks!
LOCKROSE PERFORMANCE GOLF
An integral part of this journey is James Lockrose of Lockrose Performance Golf. James is my golf coach, my fitness trainer, my psychologist and my confidante. Since we first started working together we have had a relationship based on trust and integrity with a pretty heavy dose of humour at each other's expense. James will feature heavily in this journey and you will all get to know him very well. Make sure if your'e ever looking for someone to take your golf to the next level and beyond to get in touch with James.
Jason and his team at Golf Priniciples in Basingstoke are an integral part of this journey. What's a golfer without golf clubs? More importantly, what's an elite golfer without precision fitted and built clubs that make the absolute best of his talents? Thats where Golf Principles fits in to make sure that my equipment is absolutely right for my golf game. Jason has been custom fitting golf clubs for over 20 years and his experience is invaluable in creating perfect harmony between equipment and swing resulting in outcomes that are the best that I am capable of. If you want that full tour van experience to get the clubs of your dreams make the trip to see Jason. His workshop alone is a golf equipment junkies paradise.
