Malcolm was born and raised in Valdosta, Ga where he continues to reside with his wife of 12 years, Melanie. He has 2 children, Stephanie and Jason, and 4 grandchildren, Dawkins, Caden, Mollie and Allie Kate.
In the 1980’s, his passion was race cars and he drove rear-engine dragsters competing in numerous NHFIA competitions including the Gator Nationals in Gainesville, FL.
He discovered sporting clays in 1997 when John Peek opened Southwinds Clays and Quail in Valdosta, GA. He and a shooting buddy, Robert Duff also of Valdosta, started burning up shotgun shells. With an avid practice routine and ﬁerce determination, he was able to win the Georgia State Championship in 1999 with a Browning Special Sporting. It was then that he decided he needed a gun that would last a lifetime. He purchased his Kolar in 2000 and in 2001, was able to capture the Zone 4 Championship title. He has also shot several 100 straight rounds of registered sporting clays.
He took a break from shooting for about 3 years and again went racing. ﬁrst with his son, Jason and again in rear-engine dragsters, then in a vintage series where Malcolm raced a 1929 Ford with a 650 HP Chevrolet engine!
Over the last 17 years, he has won over 175 NSCA Registered tournaments and is a 6 time NSCA All American. In 2013, he was inducted into the Georgia State Sporting Clays Association Hall of Fame not only because of his accomplishments on the course, but because of his efforts to build and share this sport with many, including the children of his local 4H and SCTP teams.
He is a life member of the NSCA. He is an NSCA certiﬁed instructor giving lessons by appointment and owns and operates Hickory Creek Farm Shotgun Sports located in Valdosta, GA. Most recently, he ﬁnished as Runner-Up in the 2014 National Championships Veterans Division.
