About Pro Secrets

Golf Yardage booksThe two principals at Pro Secrets, Simon Clarke and Michael Etherington, have been creating yardage books since 1997. Simon predominantly in Japan, Michael in Australia. Both had other sources of income, Michael as a professional golfer and golf writer and Simon as a professional caddy (he has won 14 times worldwide) but their talents in technical drawing, art and golf made their forays into hand drawn yardage books natural.

As their relative yardage books schedules grew, it was obvious that more time and effort was being placed on the yardage books than their other endeavours. It seemed that as two amicable and friendly individuals they not step on each others toes but then in 2009 they decided to go one step further and join forces in approaching schedules, Tours, sponsors and design.

With the addition of the IT wizardry of Steve Collins in late 2010 and the continued support from IT sub-contractor Alex Munro and mapper Christian (Chopper) Davidson, Pro Secrets has evolved into the dominant Asia/Pacific yardage book brand it is today.

The President's Cup and OneAsia schedules are further evidence of the positive direction Pro Secrets are heading with more tournaments and organisations inquiring as to Pro Secrets availability. Most of this is on the back of years of hard work and exceptional service but also thanks to the new digital format that stands above potential competitors.

With the early 2012 signing of a channel partnership for Australia, China and Japan with Golf Graffix (world leaders in golf course imagery) for commercial (Club) applications and this brilliant new website created by Steve Collins, Pro Secrets future looks very exciting.
