After a year in the USA playing on the Golden Bear Tour, Ryan returned to Australia, immediately gaining his card on the Australian Tour and set about building a very impressive playing resume, including:-
- In excess of 50 Pro-Am victories around Australia
- Winning the 2007 Queensland Open
- Top 10 finishes in both the Australian Open and Australian Masters
Ryan still holds his Australian Tour Card and his name is still regularly seen on leaderboards at some of the largest events held in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
With one eye on the future, in 2015 Ryan chose to enrol in the Australian PGA program and do the study required to gain full Vocational Membership of the PGA.
By gaining this accreditation, under the watchful eye of IGC Academy Director of Methodology Chris Rutherford, Ryan began his coaching career quickly impressing golfers of all levels with his genuine passion and energy for helping them become the best they can be.
Ryan understands that no two swings are the same, and he strives to ensure that players get the most out of what they have, before suggesting and implementing changes. This approach has seen a number of clients not only repeat their bookings, but consistently take their golf to higher levels and enjoy some great successes.
Ryan gains great satisfaction from these achievements of his clients and in fact has been quoted as saying he gets as big a thrill from seeing his students grow and gain success – as he does from playing.
The future of golf is in great hands with quality people like Ryan joining the coaching ranks and passing their knowledge to players looking to improve their games.
