KEVIN Carpenter, the newly-appointed head teaching professional at Hintlesham Golf Club, is also one of the leading trick-shot exponents in the country.

Now 33 years old, Carpenter started as a junior at Colchester Golf Club and then started his PGA training under Dennis Bailey at Chelmsford. He completed his qualifications at Gleneagles and then spent two years in Bahrain helping to set up a golf academy at the Riffa Golf Club with Scotsman Michael Braidwood, who is now general manager of the course.

Then came six years at Celtic Manor, where he became head teaching professional. It was there that he started to develop his trick shot routine and develop his own golf entertainment business.
