Golfer and 2018 Perago Trust grant recipient Jordan Woodall provides an update into his training and competition achievements.
My start to the 2019 season was definitely a slow one. I started the year with a missed cut at the Australian Amateur Championship held in Melbourne, the event that I was a semi finalist at the year before (2018).
Followed up by a trip to Sydney to play in the Avondale Am where I finished tied 32nd position. I don’t think I have ever learnt so much about my game over two week period like I did here.
I then took this into my next event a month later the New Zealand Stroke play held in Christchurch, this was a week where it was either my best or my worst but I battled through this and finished in a tie for 10th position.
My next event was the Akarana Charles Tour Pro event held in Auckland during the start of April. This was where it all clicked I felt so comfortable and in the zone that week and this showed in my result finishing in a tie for 9th position overall and the 4th amateur.
Recently I have been selected for the New Zealand golf National development squad. This squad will get support from NZG with funding, camps, mentoring sessions and other great opportunities.
Once again I would like to thank Perago Trust and all of the people who help support the athletes, we couldn’t do this without you.
