One of the most common comments from golfers all around the world is, “I wish I started playing at a younger age”. That is no such problem for this month’s Subaru player of the month, 9 Year Old, Yuka Lin.
Yuka has been playing the Jack Newton Junior Golf "Juniors on the Move" Tour for 2 seasons now. Juniors on the Move is a grass roots program developed by Jack Newton Junior Golf, to provide young golfers just starting their golfing career with the opportunity to play on new golf courses and meet other young aspiring golfers. The program has grown in the past 3 years from 10 juniors, to more than 100 spread across Sydney, the Central Coast, and the Hunter / Newcastle region.
Yuka has performed consistently for the past 2 seasons, reducing her handicap from 30 to 13, and picking up numerous medals along the way. In 2012, Yuka has played Juniors on the Move competitions at Woodville, Kareela, Lane Cove, Colonial, Barnwell Park, and Fairfield, winning the Girls scratch division twice and having top 5 finishes in the others.
Yuka has recently been accepted as a playing member at Cammeray Golf Club, and just last month participated in her first tournament on the main Jack Newton Junior Golf Tour, the Macarthur Junior Masters, finishing tied 7th in the Girls Stableford Division.
