Teen sets sights on pro ca­reer

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Sport -

Mar­garet River golfer Nick Lieben­berg has scored a place at the South West Academy of Sport in Bun­bury.

Nick, 17, re­cently signed up to the academy’s golf squad to pur­sue a ca­reer as a pro­fes­sional golfer.

The Mar­garet River Se­nior High School stu­dent, al­ready a mem­ber of the Bun­bury men’s pen­nant team, said the ex­tra support of­fered by SWAS would help his devel­op­ment.

“I think that with as­sis­tance from some of the ser­vices and fa­cil­i­ties of­fered by SWAS, I will be able to get my game to the next level,” he said.

The SWAS golf squad, which boasts for­mer pro golfer Shani Waugh as one of its coaches, forms part of a path- way to higher rep­re­sen­ta­tive lev­els in the sport.

SWAS is a not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion that aims to even the play­ing field be­tween junior South West ath­letes and their peers in the Perth metropoli­tan area by pro­vid­ing talent devel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties in the re­gion.
