Start a Grass­roots Youth Pro­gramme

Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - From The Gallery - Hamzah Ah­mad | Ke­pong

As a Malay, I have to ba­lik kam­pung once in a while.

One day I thought, “why can’t we teach kam­pung kids the sim­ple ba­sics of golf?”

This would be a great way to keep them oc­cu­pied and away from bad dis­trac­tions like drugs and il­le­gal rac­ing.

As a golfer, I learnt that play­ing the game re­quires one to have in­tegrity and to have re­spect for oth­ers as a gentle­man golfer.

I am sure these val­ues can be passed on through a struc­tured pro­gramme.

By hav­ing such a pro­gramme, I am sure we will have a cham­pion in no time.

Fur­ther­more, a pro­gramme of such na­ture will also cre­ate jobs for coaches who are in des­per­ate need for work.

I am sure our Fed­eral and State gov­ern­ments have the means and re­sources to start some­thing like this with the ed­u­ca­tion min­istry.

Over to you Pu­tra­jaya.
