Making friends at a Wee Wonder regional final

This blog post is a hello to the new friends I made playing at Hoebridge Golf Centre in the Wee Wonders south east England regional final this last weekend.
In my group were Oliver Webb from Wiltshire,  Joel Tarry from the Isle of Wight,  and Can Celikoglu  who lives in Turkey.
Golf is a great sport for the physical and mental challenges we have to beat.   But it’s also great for the way that even in a competitive environment we get to know and make friends with our competitors.


I want to say a big congratulations to Joel for hitting a par round of 27.  Fingers crossed he gets to qualify for St Andrews.


Afterwards we relaxed by playing crazy golf.
Hope to see you again Can and Oliver.

Isle of Wight Wee Wonders qualifier

Yesterday was Scotland and today the Isle of Wight as I played my South West England Wee Wonders qualifier at the Shanklin and Sandown Golf Club.

In the picture below with me are my playing partners Joel & William.

Thanks to dad for photographing me with my eyes closed !

Firstly I want to say I’m coming back to this course to play it again.  I enjoyed it but people told us that the back 9 were even better that the front nine we played.   I had a tricky start to the round going 6 over after three holes as you can see from the card below.

Then I started to get it together with three birdies over the next four holes finishing with a score of four over.

Everyone was really friendly at this club.
