Martyn is a Golf Course Consultant for Golf NSW, and after 45 years in the golf course maintenance industry attributes his experience with melanoma to the early part of his career. As an apprentice there was little known about the dangers of exposure to the sun and certainly no requirements on behalf of the employer to provide protection from the sun. As Martyn says "a pair of shorts and a pair of thongs are no match for the harsh Australian sun". Since his surgery at the age of 50 Martyn has helped educate the golfing community both players and workers on the importance of being Sunsmart when outdoors.
