Well done William!
William is a member of the Junior Golf Academy at Essendon Golf Club. The Academy runs a coaching program each week to introduce juniors to the game of golf and then work on improving their skills.
William joined the Academy 18 months ago and his aim now is to progress through a structured Bronze, Silver and Gold programme, eventually graduating to the main junior section of the club.
Since March, the Junior Academy has been running a competition each month on the main adult course and the results are added together each month to produce an Order of Merit. Sunday 13th November saw the last competition of the year and it was very tight at the top of the leader board with 4 or 5 Academy members competing for the end of year Order of Merit.
The final game was played in great spirit and William came third overall giving him enough points to win the overall Order of Merit and fantastic trophy. William's achievement is all the more impressive considering that he was playing against other children aged between 10 and 12 years whilst just 7 years old himself!
Our heartfelt congratulations go to William on winning the competition and the rather impressive trophy!
