Great news for golfers: The Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire, Scotland, has named Andrew Jowett as its new Head Golf Pro. In this role, Jowett will manage a team of five golf professionals at Gleneagles’ PGA National Golf Academy.

The announcement is especially significant and timely, as the 40th Ryder Cup will take place on Gleneagles’ PGA Centenary Course from Friday, September 26, 2014 to Sunday, September 28, 2014. Renovations to the layout of the PGA Centenary Course (under the guidance of Jack Nicklaus, who originally designed it) are currently underway, and will modernize the holes for contemporary play and technology, as well as create some slight aesthetic changes and a better flow for spectators.
 
Jowett joined the Gleneagles team in 2006, first as a teaching professional, then as a Senior Golf Professional, before being promoted to Head Pro this year. He started his career at Bukinfield Golf Club, near Manchester, England where he progressed to the role of Head Golf Professional. Prior to joining Gleneagles, Jowett spent two years playing mini tours in the U.S. He is a PGA Qualified AA Professional and NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Master Practitioner.
