MISS WORLD GIRLS GET TO GRIPS WITH GOLF


Ten contestants tried their hand at a spot of golf, with the help of a team of ladies golfing professionals. The women who are at the top of their game are in Sanya for the LPGA Open at the Yalong Bay Golf Course.

Contestants from China, Ecuador, England, Ireland, Malawi, Northern Ireland, South Africa, Spain Sweden and the United States jumped at the chance of some expert tuition on the golfing greens – despite few of them having played golf before.

Spain was a quick learner, picking up the technique well. Northern Ireland used her skills as a hockey player to get some power behind the ball, although she admitted that a little more subtlety might not go amiss. “I play a lot of hockey so I really hit the ball and it went a long way,’ she said. “I made some pretty good shots actually. My style might not be great but I have the power. Something to work on, I guess.”

South Africa and United States jointly won a putting contest and were proud of their achievements – especially coming from golfing nations. “I can’t play golf, as anyone here can see, but it’s definitely something I want to learn. Learning golf is on my wish list.”

After their lessons the girls were given a tour of the vast series of greens before posing for photographs with their new-found golfing buddies.
