Congratulations to my student Issy Taylor for her outstanding results at the Tasmanian Amateur and Women’s Strokeplay Championship with PB’s and course records!
Issy made a formidable start shooting a course record 67 on the tough Tasmania Golf Club at the Tasmanian Amateur where she emerged Medallist beating top Australian junior Grace Kim from NSW.
Moving onto the Women’s Strokeplay Championship at Royal Hobart, Issy opened the 4-day event with another 67 followed by 74, 73 and the day’s best score 70 in the final round to finish 8 under for the tournament and runner up. Making her achievements all the more remarkable Issy only just finished her year 11 exams in time to get to the Tasmanian Amateur!
Issy’s been working hard on her mental game to make birdie opportunities count and this week she’s proven that she can, also throwing in a couple of eagles! Issy has also been making improvements in the gym and understands the value of physicality in golf. Well done Issy!
