Simon always wanted to go to golf with his Dad on Saturdays but was told, "only big men who played golf were allowed." However, he would join them in the evenings at Sandy Lane Clubhouse after a competition to watch the prizes being given out.
Simon had little plastic golf clubs he would take to putt balls on the practice green in front of the clubhouse. It was after one of these evenings that he stated he was going to play golf on Saturdays with Dad.
Dad took an old golf club and cut it down for Simon and every evening after work, he would sit and watch him "hit" and "putt" the ball on the lawn. The following year the Barbados Academy of Golf was established and they went every Friday evening for Dad to practice driving, so Simon put his club into Dad's bag, as he needed to practice too!
As others who were practicing passed his way they would remark how cute he was but when they saw him hit the ball, they would stop and watch him in amazement!
The Pro Dennis Foster saw him and asked if he could work with him, this is when he started to become serious about golf around the age of five years. He then entered his first competition at Rockley Golf Club and won a prize.
At six years old he flew to Trinidad to participate in the Caribbean
Junior Championship, being the youngest competitor by four years and was
introduced to the Prime Minister. He was now playing at Rockley Golf Resort
and Sandy Lane Golf Club.
The Barbados Golf Club opened and Simon joined, becoming
its youngest member and it is now his home course.
and plays golf with big boys!
