After an exceptionally successful career as a player Ian went into club management before moving into the media.
As well as playing golf (handicap of 13) Ian also runs a highly successful soccer coaching school for young players (Ian St John Soccer camps). Other hobbies include travel, gardening and reading as well as being a keen sports watcher.
