Ju­nior gets shot at state team

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

GOLF: Five years ago he was se­lected in the North Queens­land schools’ golf team and now Mathew Bower has done it again.

A strong show­ing in Ayr last week­end, where he placed sec­ond in a golf com­pe­ti­tion, was enough to earn the 17-year-old a trip to Toowoomba next month where he will com­pete for a spot in the state side.

Bower first picked up a set of clubs when he was 10 and has been play­ing golf ever since.

The ju­nior now spends about three af­ter­noons a week out at the Proser­pine course hon­ing his skills.

“I usu­ally get in nine holes af­ter school,” he said.

Bower is metic­u­lous with his game and said be­ing able to tin­ker with his tech­nique was some­thing he en­joyed.

“Even if you don’t play well, you learn things from the round and you can im­prove and stuff like that,” he said. “(You) look back (and think) I could have done this, or that. Then you try and do it the next game.”

Bower will head to Toowoomba on July 16-19 for the Queens­land School State Cham­pi­onships.
