Young Molly a golf cham­pion

McIvor Times - - SPORTS -

MOLLY McLean, a ju­nior mem­ber of Heath­cote Golf Club, has taken out the Rom­sey round of the Mace­don Ranges Ju­nior Golf Tour­na­ment on Sun­day.

Molly posted the best gross score of the day to be crowned the 2017 girl’s cham­pion and re­ceived the Gary Watts Shield.

It was a great ef­fort for an 11 yearold play­ing off a hand­i­cap of 13.

The young golfer hopes to fol­low in the foot­steps of her father, who is golf pro­fes­sional at Sor­rento Golf Club.

Molly’s mother Kate said her daugh­ter has al­ways been in­volved with the game and picked up a golf club from an early age.

“She loves the challenge of the game and how ev­ery course is dif­fer­ent. She has a nat­u­ral sport­ing abil­ity,” she said.

“Molly prac­tices three times per week and plays in a com­pe­ti­tion ev­ery week­end where pos­si­ble.” Club news: Four ladies played a stable­ford event at Heath­cote Golf Club on Wed­nes­day with Cathy Shad­dock scor­ing a well de­served win.
