My name is Michael Green and I started Aussie Golfer in 2007. It has progressed into a place where golf lovers are updated with the latest golf news and also be pointed in the right direction for product reviews, swing tips, rule reminders and cool places to play golf across Australia.

I have written for Inside Golf magazine and GolfLink, I’m a member of Golf Australia Magazine’s course ranking panel and a member of the Australian Golf Writers Association.

A brief bio

It began with an obsession with golf in Adelaide where my Dad and Grandad got me into the game. Like many who were fortunate enough to be introduced to the game early, I spent many summer holidays on the golf course or by the clubhouse pool table. It taught me patience, the rules of competition golf and the quickest way to pick up your own practice balls on the range (try and get someone else to do it).

University, travel and late nights got in the way of consistent golf in the late 90’s but a intermittent rounds would reminded me that golf would find a way to squeeze back into my life. Emerging with a taste for beer, the travel bug and a PhD in physics, I was fortunate enough to live in a small town in Massachusetts, USA which was home to glorious Taconic Golf Club, a beautiful New England golf course. The thirst for golf began to take hold once again.

Upon returning to Australia I moved to Sydney to work in neuroscience and I promptly joined a golf course and immersed myself back in the game wanting to discuss its nuances, news and issues whenever I could.

Aussie Golfer was born out of a want to discuss the everyday concerns of the regular “have a drink after a round” golfer. In addition, Aussie Golfer now aims to keep updated with tour news, opinions, information on the latest handicapping changes and a word or two on where to plan your next golf weekend away.

Golf’s traditions and honesty makes the game so special but I don’t consider the game sacred. It needs a bit of a poke and some fun thrown in. I hope you enjoy the site and feel free to email me any time with ideas, feedback, scoops or just to say hi.

    Hi Michael

    Just a newsflash your readers might find interesting: This past weekend, at the Open, the Nikon Fancam took 360˚ images of the crowd at the 8th and the 18th holes.

    These are super-high-resolution pictures, so fans can zoom around and explore and tag themselves and share on social media at nikon.fancam.com.

    And for those fans not lucky enough to attend, the ‘Wish you were here’ feature allows them to take part in the memorable event.

    I attached two images you can use.

    Kind regards,
