Dinner at Kingston Heath
23 May 2017 - Woodlands Golf Club
Approximately 80 members and their guests attended the 2nd dinner of the year at Kingston Heath Golf Club on Monday May 8th. Guest speaker was Jarrod Lyle who kindly lent us his time prior to departing on a 6.00am flight to Perth the following morning to participate in a series of Pro Ams and the WA PGA Championship.
In a candid and at times emotional speech Jarrod spoke about his return to professional golf after his second bout of Leukemia. Playing in the Australian Masters at Royal Melbourne Jarrod spoke about the lead up to the event, the encouragement he received and the emotional toll it took on him.
Afterwards Jarrod answered numerous questions on topics as varied as his health, professionals playing Pennant, Sergio Garcia and his Masters win, Louis Oosthuizen and the quality of his ball striking and many other topics.
Those who attended were privileged to hear such an honest and open account from a truly inspirational figure not only in golf but in life.
