A couple of months ago, we reported on Ellen Mans success in the Hampshire County Tennis & how during RYLC Youth Sailing Week she was the Fastest Girl in the Bronze Optimist Fleet.

She has now won a further trophy last Sunday, but this time in a different sport! 

Ellen played in the 8th and final EZGO Golf Tour at Sturminster Marshall Golf Club, where she was awarded trophies for her best golfing endeavours: two 1st’s, a 2nd and a 3rd on the 2014 Tour, where she was competing against girls up to two years older than herself.

About the EZGO Junior Tour

The EZGO Junior Tour was set up by golf professional Mike Dodd in 2008. the concept is to create a fun tour for children in Dorset & Hampshire to play golf, experience different courses and meet other golfers.

In 2014 this Tour is spreading into other counties and there will be a grand final with all age group winners playing against each other in one event. The tour offers girls and boys divisions and trophies are awarded to the top 2 golfers in each age group. Winners are decided on an order of merit system where the best 4 results count over 8 tournaments. A separate handicap congu section is set up to allow those children who wish to play on tour that have a handicap.
