Our latest Q&A comes all the way from Melbourne, Australia! 5 year old, Billy – from Melbourne – is golf mad and is proving to be quite a natural. We spoke with Billy and his parents to learn about his love for golf and how it all began!
Tell us about yourself!
Ever since if been able to walk I’ve had a golf club in my hands, I’m 5 years old and the youngest of three children in my family (So some would say the spoilt one but I don’t agree). I’m golf mad, but love any sport that involves a ball. I have just started primary school and although love my friends would prefer to spend my days on the greens. I practice almost every day, everyone in the house is used to the foam practice balls whizzing around, so far I’ve been pretty lucky and haven’t broken anything!
