Simon Proverbs dominated his age group while Nick Voss had a very commendable second place at the Caribbean Junior Golf Championships in the Dominican Republic in July 2005.
Twelve-year-old Proverbs had an outstanding tournament. He led on every day in the boys 12-and-under category and won special mention by the organisers for an historic achievement.
"No other player has led on every day in any category at these championships, " said Richard Proverbs, Simon's father and the team's manager. < Read more >
Simon was part of the Barbados
Golf Association Youth Team playing at the Caribbean
Promise Charity Tournament held at Royal Westmoreland in October
Dad took an old golf club and cut it down for Simon and every evening after work, he would sit and watch him "hit" and "putt" the ball on the lawn. The following year the Barbados Academy of Golf was established and they went every Friday evening for Dad to practice driving, so Simon put his club into Dad's bag, as he needed to practice too!
As others who were practicing passed his way they would remark how cute he was but when they saw him hit the ball, they would stop and watch him in amazement!
The Pro Dennis Foster saw him and asked if he could work with him, this is when he started to become serious about golf around the age of five years. He then entered his first competition at Rockley Golf Club and won a prize.
At six years old he flew to Trinidad to participate in the Caribbean
Junior Championship, being the youngest competitor by four years and was
introduced to the Prime Minister. He was now playing at Rockley Golf Resort
and Sandy Lane Golf Club.
The Barbados Golf Club opened and Simon joined, becoming
its youngest member and it is now his home course.
and plays golf with big boys!
