CHILDREN from Highburton, Birdsedge, Kayes, Emley and Rowley Lane primary schools are undergoing Tri-golf coaching in preparation for a competition at the Stadium Driving Range later today.
Each school will supply a team of eight golfers in an attempt to win a variety of prizes and the competition forms part of the Golf Factor weekend.
Jeremy Dale, one of golf’s top trick shot artists, will be showing the children how it is done when he performs his free show ‘It’s a kind of magic’ at 12.30pm on the same day at the driving range.
James Beattie, who is pictured left with children from Highburton First School said he was impressed with the ability of the children, and the competition is sure to be hotly contested between the schools.
Marsden’s Corey Avison represented Yorkshire at Woodhall Spa after finishing fourth in the county regional qualifier for the British Colleges National Championships.
The 18-year-old, who plays off a handicap of five, is a level 2 sport student at Kirklees College, and has only been playing the sport for two years.
In Lincolnshire, Avison was up against the best players from across nine regions, and was pleased to finish in the middle of a strong field after rounds of 88 and 83.
Avison should have been joined at Woodhall Spa by his fellow Kirklees college mate Nigel Colbeck, but sadly injury prevented Colbeck playing in the finals.
