A Maidenhead-based golfer has dreams of turning professional after claiming two regional championships in recent months.
Alfie Forisky, of Raylea Close, won Maidenhead Golf Club Men’s Championship in August and Castle Royale Club Men’s Championship earlier this month, performing exceptionally well at the latter to break a course record.
The 21-year-old was pitted against 100 other competitors at the 36 Hole Club Championship at Castle Royale where he finished with an outstanding -8 in the second round of the tournament.
This teed the young golfer up nicely to win the championship and beat the course record by two shots.
Forisky’s hard work and dedication to the game has thoroughly paid off this season as he has reduced his handicap from 3 in June to now playing off +1.
He has been playing golf for more than eight years and is hopeful if he keeps working hard he can one day turn professional.
“I feel really good and I think all my family are proud of me aswell,” said Forisky.
“It’s the first big championship I’ve won. I started playing when I was 13-years-old and my dad got me into it. He also plays at Maidenhead.
“I train all the time, as much as I can, and whenever I’ve got a spare moment.
“I would like to eventually turn professional and give that a go. I’ve always looked up to Tiger Woods.”
