The latest achievements by 13-year-old Timmy Fycun, and his mum, Sally, at Ross Golf Club has enabled both to continue enjoying their respective golfing journeys.
Timmy was introduced to golf through ’Tri-Golf’ when the Ross Club’s ’School of Golf’ Academy visited Bridstow Primary School. Joining the Ross Club in 2013 as a 54 handicapper Timmy, now at John Kyrle High School has, through his own dedicated practice and hard work seen his handicap tumble to 20. His recent runners-up success in the Club’s Juniors AD Evans Cup, with a 38 stableford points score will add further encouragement and self belief as he looks forward to the 2017 season with considerable confidence.
On the day Liam Greig with 40 points, was the Juniors Cup Winner, with Matty Dobbs 37 pts and Harry Griffiths 36 points, also featuring.
Through Timmy’s involvement, his mum, Sally, also a beginner, joined the Ross Club in 2014 as a 36 handicapper and her progress since then has been quite remarkable. Playing recently in the Ross Ladies Spring meeting in which 71 Ladies took part Sally’s gross 82 medal score, which included three birdies, and the equivalent of 42 stableford points, meant that she won the competition by miles.
Unarguably her best performance to date it means her handicap is now 13 and she is also in top spot in the race to win the Club’s annual Josie Powell Cup, which is based upon the best two gross medal performances. The Ladies Autumn second round meeting awaits Sally in October. She heads that table from the likes of the Ladies sections more experienced players Helen Palmer and Jan Armstrong, who are three shots and six shots behind Sally respectively. In the Spring meeting Dinah Johnston scored 38 points followed by Lois Price and Katie Greenwood with 35 pts each with Sheila Hatherall and Jenny Reeve-Tucker gaining best gross awards in their handicap categories.
