Peter Jackson is a plus-handicap golfer and member of several clubs and golf societies in the UK. He has an MA in Mathematics from Oxford University and spent 25 years working in finance. Peter grew up in the early 1980s playing golf at Royal Lytham & St Annes, and was a keen single figure golfer for 3 decades before having his first golf lesson. Throughout that period he suffered terribly from the yips but pretended he didn't. Finally, at the age of 45, he not only had a lesson but began to address his putting problems. Through a combination of advice, experimentation, hard work and the appliance of science his handicap improved by 6 shots, enabling him to enter all sorts of exciting competitions, including Final Qualifying for both the Open Championship and the European Senior Tour. He didn't play in the Open itself, and he didn't qualify for the Tour, but he did defeat the yips and he still loves golf.
