Neil grew up playing the game on Ireland’s second oldest course, Royal Dublin. He enjoyed a successful amateur career which included an individual title at the Kerry Boys Championship and back to back wins in the Connacht Youth Championship. In 2004, he was a member of the Royal Dublin team that won the All-Ireland Fred Daly Trophy. Later that year, the same team represented Ireland at the home counties final in La Manga (Spain) where they were also victorious.
In 2005, Neil moved to the US after receiving a scholarship to Wofford College in South Carolina. He made a strong start to his collegiate career, registering eight Top 5 finishes in his first season which included medalist honours at the Birkdale Collegiate Classic. His consistency on the course earned him multiple first-team All-Southern Conference accolades and he was also named Southern Conference Freshman of the Year. Throughout his time at Wofford College, Neil received further accolades and set three scoring records which he still retains today. He closed out his amateur career representing Ireland at Senior level.
Since turning pro, Neil has played in a number of European, Challenge and EuroPro Tour events. However in recent seasons, he has been working towards his PGA teaching qualification. As a result, he juggled his Assistant Pro responsibilities with playing time on the Irish PGA Regions circuit. In 2016, Neil completed his teaching qualification and has now set his sights on earning a European Tour card over the coming seasons.
