GRANT WARD SCHOLARSHIP REPORT- Kyle Dowde

GRANT WARD SCHOLARSHIP REPORT

It has been quite an eventful period since my last report starting with good results for 2019 at Ayr winning the Karrie Webb Junior Masters and I then followed that up at the Greg Norman Junior Masters making the cut finishing top 10 and having all four rounds in the 70’s. At the start of 2020 I participated in the qualifying event for the QLD Isuzu Men’s Open, it was a great experience and although not making the cut it gave me a better understanding of the level of golf required and just how hard it is in the elite level of our sport. I will be going back next year to try again.

As everyone is aware the COVID-19 virus has put a stop to a lot of normal activities including golf. We have been fortunate in QLD not to be as affected as our southern counterparts and it has been a credit to our NQ district clubs to reschedule our Junior events. In a revised season Mackay, Bowen Ayr, Proserpine and Charters Towers have or will hold opens. I recently won the Mackay Open which qualified me for the Greg Norman again and last week I won the Bowen Junior Open for a small club they put on a great event and I was proud to be defending champion.

For next couple of months, I have a busy schedule with Schools representing Capricornia in Cairns, Gary Player in Brisbane and GNJM at the end of the year. I will also try and play some men’s events including Rowes Bay and Ayr.

I continue to work on my swing and trying to practice at least five times a week. I have also begun regular sessions at the gym and sessions with a Personal Trainer which is helping my core and stability

My handicap has come down and I am now off 0.9 and with consistency it should remain low.

I will provide an update at the end of the year and again wish to thank the NQ Committee for their support.

Hills Golf Academy Camp 2021 cancelled

HILLS GOLF ACADEMY
To All Queensland Golfing Districts
Because of the ongoing Covid Pandemic, I have had to make the tough decision to cancel our Golf Camp for the second consecutive year. The unstable situation regarding dormitory living at the College and the various restrictions when it comes to using the cafeteria has made it almost impossible to plan with any confidence for the camp.
I am very disappointed that I have had to cancel the camp as Hills has always felt that it can assist and contribute to helping up and coming junior golfers improve their skills. I am hopeful that the Pandemic will be overcome and that we will be able to get back to running the camp in 2022.

Yours Sincerely,
Tom Berndt Director of Golf

Greg Norman Junior Masters 2020 Update

The GNJM was held last week in some of the worst conditions imaginable for golf. Conditions became that bad that rounds 1 and 4 were abandoned. This is the first time it has happened since its commencement.

Our district was well represented by

13yrs Boys – Elio DiBella, Levi Holmes, Dallas Douglas & Addison Neaves

15yrs Boys – Finn Couper, Kaylem Douthwaite and Beau Lavery

15yrs Girls – Jade Escriva

17yrs Boys – Tim Herman, Sam Harrison and Kyle Dowde

Although not all players made the proposed cut it was great to see most improved on their first round scores. I was impressed on how our players conducted themselves and their were several comments made about our shirts and how well the kids looked. I would like to thank the committee for providing these.

In the shorten event (36 holes) Elio DiBella was the nett winner on a countback and Kyle Dowde was the winner of the State Final District Points Challenge.

I hope that all our players learnt something from this experience and come back and try and qualify for 2021.

Mick Dowde
