Junior Golf Q&A – Brody MacIver
Swinging into our Q&A this week is a very special golfing talent. At just 6 years old, his talent knows no bounds. Having secured a win on the British Junior Golf Tour, Brody incredibly secured 6 wins on the Robert Rock Junior Golf Tour, enough to secure the 2020 Tour Championship. His success has earned him the trip of a lifetime to San Diego, to compete in the IMG World Golf Championships.
We spoke with Mum Gemma and Brody to learn about Brody’s love of golf, experiencing success and how he feels about competing on the World stage.
