Thomas Parkin from Santee, California, was drawn towards golf at the age of 4 and started playing more seriously at age 9, often playing 36 to 54 holes a day during the summer. After graduating from Sheffield Hallam University in Sheffield, England, he married Chrissy, now his wife of 13 years, that same year.

Chrissy, who was an Olympic-level ice dancer, inspired him to do what he loved and led him to work in the golf industry. The next year, they relocated to San Diego, California, where he began his golf coaching career. He has successfully run his own golf school for seven years at two different courses; served as a swing coach to a high school team which lead to their rapid improvement, and coached junior golfers who competed in the Junior World championship.

He and Chrissy have a four-year-old son, Caleb, who loves to work on his golf game. Interestingly, he also had a successful career on the side as a wedding and events deejay. Other business ventures include starting an online health and fitness blog and YouTube channel with his wife, personal training, and music production. He is currently in the process of launching a golf YouTube channel.
