Wade and Couper shine in US tour­na­ments

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - OPINION -

RE­CENTLY Wade Duncan (16) and Couper Smith (10) trav­elled with an Aus­tralian con­tin­gent of 21 ju­nior golfers and their fam­ily mem­bers to the United States of Amer­ica, rep­re­sent­ing Aus­tralia at the World Stars of Ju­nior Golf Cham­pi­onships at Las Ve­gas and the West Coast AAU Ju­nior Olympic Golf Tour­na­ment in Te­mec­ula Cal­i­for­nia.

The Mossman Golf Ju­niors per­formed ad­mirably with Wade Duncan at­tain­ing a top 25 fin­ish at the Las Ve­gas Tour­na­ment and Couper Smith se­cur­ing a bronze medal at the Ju­nior Olympic Event in Cal­i­for­nia.

Wade and Couper, along with their par­ents, would like to ex­press sin­cere heart felt grat­i­tude to the Mossman and Port Dou­glas com­mu­ni­ties, whose in­cred­i­ble, over­whelm­ing sup­port trans­formed this sport­ing op­por­tu­nity into a re­al­ity, and fur­ther ce­mented as­pi­ra­tions within both boys to take their golf to an­other level.

Couper has since won the two-day men’s FNQ Mossman Golf Hat­field Clas­sic..

This is the sec­ond year in a row he has won the over­all event.

He has also made it through to the last four of the Mossman C Grade Men’s Match Play tour­na­ment.
