A 15-year-old Sydney golfer makes golf seem easy.
A great story popped up on Golf Australia’s website today about a golfer shaving 37 strokes off her handicap in one year.
Felicity Wittenberg from Sydney’s Avondale Golf Club has shown remarkable dedication to the game by managing to go from a handicap of 45 to 8 in the space of 12 months.
Felicity commented, “I went from 45 to 37, then skipped 36, going down to 33, and stayed there for a while. Then I had a few small jumps… The next big jump was from 27 to 24…..I went from 21 to 19 which was also a pretty big jump…My handicap now is 8.3.”
Felicity is just 15-years-old and comes from some pretty good sporting stock with her father and brothers playing off plus handicaps, while both her parents former tennis professionals.
