Mackenzie Award Winner – Abhisaran Singh SohalThanks to the 80:20 Charitable Trust and Golf Monthly magazine, 450 ‘Skills for Life’ Trophies have been given to clubs to recognise juniors who demonstrate these values.
Each club was asked to nominate its recipient for the Mackenzie Award and this has been extremely popular. The winner – Abhisaran Singh Sohal – was involved in a serious car crash when he was five, which led him to struggle to mix with others. A chance visit to a local golf facility sparked an interest; golf became his passion and by nine he was welcomed by Strawberry Hill GC, London, and became a junior member, taking part in Junior Golf Passport sessions, the focus on Skills for Life helping to develop his game and express his sense of sportsmanship. He now has a handicap of seven, has played for Middlesex, and is Junior Captain. He is always happy to encourage the new players.
