Noah Mulligan, aged 13, is working hard and it’s paying dividends as his golf handicap falls and his experience grows.
Noah, a pupil at Kingsbridge Community College, started golf aged just 3 (as did Tiger Woods!). He plays at Thurlestone Golf Club and has lessons with John Jacobs at Cumberwell Park Golf Club.
Under the beady eye of DevonGolf’s U14s Team Manager Marc Mulligan (yes, it’s his dad!), Noah is a star in the making. Playing this week, 13-15th July, in the McGregor Trophy at Camberley Heath Golf Club in Surrey, Noah will be pitting himself against some of the best young players from Great Britain and Europe. The McGregor Trophy is the England Golf U16 Open Amateur Strokeplay Championship. There are another 4 years for Noah to make his mark in this Trophy, but let’s keep our fingers crossed for his success this week.
In August, Noah will also be playing in The Reid Trophy, the England Golf U14 Boys’ Open Amateur Strokeplay Championship at Porters Park Golf Club, Radlett in Hertfordshire.
Noah has recently brought his handicap down from 2.7 to 2.0. When playing at 2.7, Noah was ranked 14th in England. He was certainly good enough to be picked for the DevonGolf U18s team when they played to qualify to defend their title as England Golf Boys’ County Champions at Salisbury Golf Club. David Baldwin, one of two remaining players from the winning team in 2019, was “tracked and traced” and unable to play. Noah, in a rare honour for a 13-year old, stepped forward and played well for the team.
Good luck, Noah. We are sure you will do yourself, Thurlestone Golf Club and DevonGolf proud.
