George Groves started his golfing story at Horne Park Golf , George enrolled on one of our many junior programmes over 10 years ago , along with the thousands of juniors that have been introduced to the game over the years via Horne Park. Remember the junior section has been supported over the years by the members of Horne. George’s pathway has taken him to EDGA World Number One.
World Number One George Groves held off the challenge of America’s Chad Pfeifer to win the inaugural EDGA Dubai finale.
The 36 hole event featured some of the world’s best Golfers with Disability and was taking place alongside the European Tour’s season ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai.
It was the second EDGA event taking place in conjunction with a Rolex Series event on the 2019 Race to Dubai after Groves finished second to Brendan Lawlor at the EDGA Scottish Open, held during the weekend of the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open.
The Englishman has Erb’s Palsy, a condition which leaves him with 20 per cent strength in his left arm after a medical accident during birth, but that has not stopped him from rising to the top of the World Rankings for Golfers with Disability.
Congratulations George, roll on 2020 and his continuation as the EDGA world number one.
