A wonderful day with Lydia and US Kids Golf, Auckland tour

  • Last Sunday 30-Nov, by special invitation, members of Waiheke Junior Golf visited the US kids golf Auckland tour featuring the best NZ junior golfers, at Takapuna Golf Club. Two of Waiheke’s junior golfers, Kip Hailstone and Tallaj Singh, mustered the courage to play 9 holes with the highly ranked US Auckland tour kids and the boys even won a couple of holes in their round. A wonderful effort considering they have had only two terms of lessons. Also there that weekend, was our very own World # 3 of women’s golf, Lydia Ko. Waiheke junior golfers had made Lydia a congratulations card which she was very chuffed about. She was incredibly kind, patient and generous of her time, posing for endless photos, signing many caps and holding a putting and chipping clinic for the kids. Waiheke Junior Coach and newly-crowned senior Club Champ Mike Wheeler made the most of the opportunity and managed to get a few tips from her about HIS putting game – never mind the kids Mike! At the end of the day, we all agreed, it’s not the tournaments or amount of money Lydia wins but her amazing attitude that makes her truly a super star and she deserves every accolade that comes her way. We wish her all the best and thank her for spending time with, and inspiring us all. Kirsten Rudd, Waiheke Golf Club.
