Details from the article
Liam Howlett is a MyGolfer from Golf City Ballarat. He started playing 2 years ago and got a handicap in October 2017. Liam is actually right hand dominant but due to his dad being a left-handed golfer and there being no right-handed clubs in the house, he taught himself to play left handed.
Over the summer he played as much golf as he could, resulting in him lowering his handicap to 16. He plays at the Ballarat Golf Club on the weekends and loves meeting new people and socialising with the members. His lowest round is 85 and is eager to better that soon.
His idols are Rickie Fowler and Jordan Speith. His parents credit his coach Andrew Cartledge for helping Liam to develop into the golfer he is becoming. Liam is chock-full of natural ability, so watch this space.
