Joel Tadman

Joel Tadman is an experienced golf writer and has been with Golf Monthly for six years. He manages all product-related content across the website and magazine, be it breaking news stories, buying guides and reviews while also presenting videos.

Joel lets his testing experience, not commercial relationships, inform his reviews to make sure they are as honest and realistic as possible – he wants you to know exactly how a club performs to better inform your buying decision.

He has interviewed many big names, including Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, and has been lucky enough to play a round at Augusta National – where he shot a commendable score of 86 with four birdies and only one par! He plays off a handicap of five at Burghley Park Golf Club in Stamford.
