Augusta gets Kango'd by Pontardawe Golf Club tourists, Kangoisms everywhere.

This is a difficult one to write about and it's hard to imagine how much they are enjoying themselves.

Here,sresults and gossip from one young man on tour and I'm pretty sure there will be a lot more great stories when they get home

First things first the results

3rd Adam Lewis - 119 Pts

Most Balls in the water

2nd - Conrad Jones - 5 balls
3rd - Neil Sullivan, Adam Lewis Steff Lloyd - 3 balls

Apparently the self confessed best golfer on tour Rhydian Howells (4 handicap) got beaten four out of four times by a semi-retired golfer, Bradley Dyment Jones. Even after Bradley was docked 2 shots for winning twice.

Rumour has it Rhydian even lost when the four youngsters playing mini golf inside their Kiawah Island villa one night

A couple of things I find it hard to believe, but are supposedly true

Could you ever imagine Conrad buying himself and Kango non alcoholic beer, surely that can't be true.

Neil not being able to eat all his food, that's a first... His spicy chicken wings were so hot they gave him blisters inside his mouth.

I was told it was probably the most amazing trip/experience/bucket list they have ever been on. Represented PGC in Augusta National The masters (as seen on tv with red PGC crested shirts)
A huge thank you and appreciation to Rhydian for organising the most amazing trip.
