Message from the Junior Captain
I am delighted to have been elected as Junior Captain of Enville Golf Club, in spite of these strange times.
I started playing golf at the age of 8 at Himley golf course and was coached by Mark Sparrow. Ever since I started playing I wanted to have a handicap of scratch or better. I knew that this would entail a lot of hard work and dedication to the game and there have been many ups and downs over the years but having the ability to push on through the hard times and come out stronger and better the other side is what makes your handicap come down. I started to play in golf competitions at the age of 10 at Himley and moved to Halfpenny green at the age of 12. I only played club competitions up until the age of 13 which is when I started to play in county events and open competitions.
I joined Enville Golf Club in 2016 and was able to fully appreciate the 2 lovely courses and practice facilities . Soon my handicap came flying down going from 14 to 5 in a single year. Over the next 2 years I slowly chipped away at my handicap playing in events all over the country and got down to scratch in 2018.
Going to university in America has always been a goal of mine since I started to play competitive golf, and with the help of Chris and Henry at Study and Play America and constant support from my coach Mark Sparrow and my family, I achieved this goal. I will be continuing my golfing career at Oklahoma Wesleyan University in August this year. Before then I hope I that we will all have the opportunity to play golf soon and I can fulfil some of my duties as Junior Captain
