An Interview With Duncan: Get To Know The Newest Academy Member At Leeds Golf Centre

Duncan McCarthy at Leeds Golf Centre

Recently, we welcomed Duncan to the Academy at Leeds Golf Centre. He’s our new Performance Coach and will be doing some new courses based on golf fitness and sports psychology. As an introduction, we thought we’d ask Duncan a few questions so that you can get to know him better.

What’s your favourite golf course?
Harbour Town in South Carolina.

Tell us 3 things you like about working at Leeds Golf Centre?
The staff without a shadow of a doubt, the banter that we have up here, and the facilities.

If you didn’t play golf, what sport would you be good at?
Football.

What’s the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you while playing a game of golf?
I can’t tell you the funniest story so here’s the second funniest. My Dad and I had a bit of an argument on the 4th while he was caddying for me at an amateur tournament. I was storming ahead to the 5th tee and I had my umbrella over me as it was raining. I turned round to look for my Dad but I couldn’t see him – he’d fallen into a big bunker with an electric trolley over him! He was not a happy chap!

If you could play golf with anyone, who would it be?
Mark Wahlberg. What a top boy.

If you could live in a book, film, or TV show, what would it be?
Entourage, no doubt.

What are your 3 desert island items?
A knife, my Spotify account, and a cap just so I don’t burn my head!

What words of wisdom would you give to your childhood self?
Always have belief in yourself on the lowest of days.

What’s your favourite thing to eat at Nineteen Bar and Grill?
The Golfer’s Roll.

A meerkat! They just look like they’re having a great time!
