Simon is an Old Millfieldian who lives in Aberdovey. A golf professional in his youth, he then became a top property sales person in the new homes industry before forming his own very successful property company.
Simon is the publisher of the highly-acclaimed book for senior golfers Now for the Back Nine he co-wrote with Ryder Cup golfer Peter Dawson. He is married to Chemo Cookery Club author Penny Ericson.
Simon discovered the gloves in the US and was amazed how they helped his game by gripping the club softer and also eased the peripheral neurology caused by his many chemotherapy lessons back in 2010.
