About Me

My name is Craig Middleton and I’m 20 years old. I am a student at the University of Huddersfield studying Broadcast Journalism.

This blog is an updated version of what I wrote a couple of years ago, but now solely concentrating on Golf. I will be covering stories and writing opinionated articles on the PGA and European Tour, previews and reviews of all the big tournaments and up-to-date coverage of the 4 majors.

A bit about myself.  In the past I represented England under 16’s as a goalkeeper, and played for Newcastle and Sunderland. I enjoy the majority of sports, but mainly an avid football and golf fan. I worked as a digital content editor for the R&A at the 2014 Open Championship, and luckily for me doing the same at St Andrew’s in 2015.

I am currently working on a professional case study called ‘The development of digital and social media in the golf industry, and its effects on journalists and reporters’. I am hoping to use this case study and blog as a way to get myself a dream job in the golfing world!

Follow me on twitter with my personal and professional account:

Hope you all enjoy the newly updated blog.

Craig.

    Hi Craig, my names Gary Jennings, I worked with your dad at nissan ( for too many years ) he was over mine today doing tiling and told me about your site. Even though your a black and white I think the stuff you write is excellent and wish you well in your endeavours in America and your aims in life. If your anything like your dad, you deserve the best, as he’s a cracking bloke, but unfortunately you have inherited his looks. Take care youngin, and all the best. Gaz

    • Hi Gary, Thanks very much for that I really appreciate it! Yeh he is! like you say shame about the looks though, I am starting to go bald also which isn’t a great sign! Glad you like the site and hope you continue to like it! Thanks again Gary.
