Hails from a family with a strong sporting pedigree as his mother, Gill, swam for England and his cousin, Matthew Smith, is a professional tennis player. Also enjoys a passion for music and used to DJ in the clubs and bars of Liverpool, specialising in house music. Won his card at The 2007 European Tour Qualifying School after an emotional fortnight following the death of his grandfather, Harry Smith. It was his grandfather who first introduced him to the game at the age of nine, taking him down to the local pitch and putt. His grandfather died during the first round of Stage Two and his funeral fell on the first round of the Final Stage. “This was for him,” said Waring after securing his place on The 2008 European Tour. Has kept his playing rights since then, finishing 95th in The 2010 Race to Dubai. Also enjoys extreme sports, although admits to having given up wakeboarding because of the risk of injury.
