Scottish retailer Affordable Golf, one of the fastest-growing golf retailers in the UK, has snapped up former Scottish PGA champion Colin Gillies as a custom fitter at its East Kilbride branch.

Gillies, 54, has won more money than any other player in Tartan Tour history – £513,747, to be exact – and says he is looking to forward to getting down to business. “When Affordable Golf owner Mark and I got talking, I knew it was the job for me,” said Gillies. “I was more than impressed with what they’ve got going on. I was probably a wee bit naïve as to how big they have become. Although the pandemic has been bad for everybody, they’ve ridden the storm pretty well thanks to their online business. The hours are very social, which surprised me. I finish at 6pm at night, so it will be great.”
