Declan happy with his days on the golf green

GOLF: As the sole player from Central Queensland, Declan Corke did his state proud at the Primary Schools Golf Championships which finished on Thursday in Murray Bridge, South Australia.

The QLD team of Andrew Park, Ethan Leighton, Kai Schloss, Harrison Crawley, Yevin Samararatne, Will Ross, Jack Oster, Caitlyn Vanderkruk, Rhiannon Nott, Ilani Short and Kate McFarlane, finished runner-up in the nett category to win silver.

The team took out bronze in the gross division of the three-day event that started last Monday and continued into Tuesday.

Declan said his best day was on day two.

"I was hitting straight with my driving and most of my strokes on Tuesday in the single stroke," he said.

He was impressed with the quality of players from all over Australia and described the greens as something that he needed to adjust to.

"It was a different type of green in that they are slower and I needed to work out how the ball spins off the wedge and irons," Declan said.

Declan's dad Derran said the behaviour of the QLD team was exemplary.

"The managers of the other teams commented how well the QLD players conducted themselves," Corke said.
