Do your teammates give you stick about getting a dad bod now?
Yes, a few of the younger players like to comment ‘dad bod’ when jumping in the showers. However we all know that it’s just a myth.
Is there a stigma attached to dad bods that is unfair?
Yes as I mentioned, I think it’s a tag line and there’s not much truth to it.
Anyone given you parental advice?
A million friends, dads, team mates and random strangers have given me parental advice. However, I believe you find your own way.
How has your daily routine changed now that you’re a father?
At the moment not a lot. It means I get in the bath at the same time every night with my daughter and maybe I don’t need my alarm clock anymore but we have an amazing little baby girl who loves being outdoors.
The hardest thing about becoming a dad?
I guess the early months are extremely hard with less sleep and the fact you have a little baby totally dependant on you now. Otherwise it has been the most enjoyable ride of my life.
What has had to budge in order to properly play out your role as a father?
I guess you could say my golf game has taken a bit of a back seat.
What tips do you have for regular dads who don’t have fitness and exercise ingrained into their day job?
I think it’s important, as new parents, that you find time to do things for yourselves. If you’re lucky enough to have family close by, take the help and keep up your training. Or, you and your partner create the opportunities for each other to do ‘normal’ every day activities.
