It’s been a great time to reflect and share with others the amazing experience of being a part of an incredible team.
At the time, each team member was focused on the job in hand and there was very little time to reflect and observe the experience.
I am very proud to have represented Great Britain and Ireland and very happy I contributed to the 16 – 10 victory, by winning my foursomes match on the second day. My singles match was a great game, playing against the number one American PGA Professional Rich Berbarian Jr. I felt I was playing very well and was 1 up after 9 holes, then my opponent decided to unleash two eagles and three birdies which saw me lose the game 4&3. Despite the result it certainly didn’t feel like losing, as the whole focus was on the team and what we achieved together.
Our success would never had been possible without the hard work of Captain Albert Mackenzie and his vice-captains Cameron Clark and Martyn Thompson. They really left no stone un-turned and created a well-bonded team that was able to fight any challenge.
Now, as my focus has turned back to the Academy, I really hope this achievement can inspire our junior players at Golf At Goodwood. There is a huge amount of talented youngsters at Goodwood and we are now starting to create the ideal environment for them to develop their games. Keep an eye on our website and social media channels for our junior events and coaching this coming winter at Golf At Goodwood.
