My Junior Golf

about me

I was born on January 4th 2002 and ever since lived in Kent. I started hitting a golf ball when I was about 2 years of age in the garden. After I managed to stand correctly to the ball, I was then introduced to the driving range and later on to the golf course.

Playing Golf for good:

I started off by playing 9 holes around a par 3 course then progressed onto a 18 hole course.

Golf in Spain 2015

Under 18 European championship, playing and practice before I started play in tournament. Great courses and practice facilities and lovely views with the sunrise. Hope to do it again next year and hopefully qualify for the final day, missed out by 3 shots so happy with my performance considering a few under 18 England players In the field.

So what does Barnes want to achieve in next year (or two)?

The main focus for 2016 will be to try and qualify for the boys Read Trophy and the English boys.

Long term goals to be a very successful professional golfer and try for 2020 Olympic Games. Every child is allowed a dream and with determination and hard work dreams can come true.

However I always reminded by Mum, Dad, and other golfing friends that school work is equally very important too.

Golf in 2018

This year I started the season with a handicap of 2.3 and my goal was to try and get to scratch;

I’ve played in a number of competitions this year at my home club The Addington with good success winning a number of events.

My best achievements this year are winning two under 18 junior championship, the Paul Casey 36 hole at foxhills and the Wilderness junior open both events I further reduced my handicap down to 0.7.

However in golf results don’t always go in your favour so my biggest disappointment this year was missing the cut by 1 shot in the England boys championship at Keddleston Park, especially making a double bogey on the last hole. So I’ve used that event not as a fail but a learning experience.

So I’m looking forward to the rest of 2018.
