Liam Blake strikes an ‘Ace’ in the men’s midweek stableford competition at Southport & Ainsdale Golf Club, Wednesday 22nd July 2015

Liam Blake, age 14 has been a member at S&A Golf Club since he was 6 years old. He now plays off a handicap of 11.

Liam had just spent a week at The Open in St Andrews last week and was inspired by the magnificent golf he watched. On his first trip to the golf course since coming home, he stood on the par 3 first tee, with the flag at 162 yards and hit a shot with a 4 iron. With the flag tucked behind the 2 front bunkers he didn’t see exactly where his ball finished. He was absolutely delighted to see his ball in the hole when he got to the green.

He received a lot of congratulatory comments when he got back to the clubhouse and everyone joined in the traditional free bar, which was paid for by a very proud dad, who witnessed the great shot whilst he was waiting to tee off behind him.

Well don Liam, lets hope that it’s the first of many!
