Roles lifts the county crown
6:00pm Monday 12th August 2013 in Sport
THE fabulous summer continued in more ways than one for Sam Roles, 17, who has been crowned Dorset County boys’ champion for 2013.
After two stunning under par rounds of 71 and 69 at Parkstone Golf Club, the Weymouth youngster beat the best under-18s in the county by three clear shots to take the title.
He is the first junior from Came Down Golf Club to achieve this for 57 years.
In 2012, in only his third year of competitive golf, he won the County Junior Order of Merit but 2013 is proving to be even better as he retained the title of Came Down men’s champion and won the Weymouth Junior Open, also for the second year running.
Roles was a part of the County Under-18 squad that won the Four Counties tournament earlier in the summer, defeating Cornwall, Devon and Somerset.
He is lucky to be a natural ball player and works hard on his game but credit for his succ-
ess should also go to the staff and members at Came Down as well as the Dorset Golf Union who encourage and support junior golf throughout the county.
Roles’ handicap is now two and although he has achieved success at county level he has his sights set higher and aims to take his golf as far as possible with the goal of becoming a tournament professional.
His first opportunity to test himself against the best juniors in England will come in a month’s time at the National Golf Centre at Woodhall Spa where he will compete against all the other county boys’ champions in a 36-hole tournament for the title of Champion of Champions.
