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.

My playing partner gets a hole in one !!

Congratulations to my playing partner Josh Davies who today in the Surrey Rookie Tour event held at Hoebridge Golf Centre hit his first ever  hole in one.   It happened on the 97 yd 18th hole.  It was the first time I have witnessed live a hole in one.

Congrats to Josh on his hole in one

As a celebration he bought me a freezing cold lime green slush puppy !

Drinks are on Josh

Today I shot eight over on this 18 hole par 3 course.   It’s ok but not a brilliant score.  I want to thank Silvermere Golf Store for loaning me a Scotty Cameron putter yesterday evening while my Odyssey two ball is being fixed.  It broke in the middle of my round yesterday at the South and West Wee Wonders regional final held at Farrington Golf Club in Somerset.
