Beware of the sick golfer – perhaps it’s because their swing invariably slows down, or perhaps it’s because they are `dosed up’ – but golfers who are unwell often play very good golf.
Just ask Living Choice Flagstaff Hill resident, Wendy Butler. She felt awful heading into the final of the A Grade Women’s Championship but still managed to beat her opponent 6 and 4. That’s a pretty convincing win!
“I did not feel well but did not have COVID so I dosed myself up, kept far away from my golfing buddy, Heather Holmes, who was caddying for me, and just played sensible, straight golf,” said Wendy.
It’s the third time Wendy has won the A Grade Championships. She won in 2001, 2022 and now in 2023. Living next to the golf course, Wendy plays between two and three times a week and she also assists at the Chip & Sip Clinics as well as the junior competitions which are held every fortnight. She has been a mentor to junior golfers for many years, assisting golf coach, Sarah Douglass Norris.
Well done, Wendy and keep up the good golf!
