Sheree ends golf tenure on high note
CLERMONT'S Sheree Hasson has ended her Women's Golf Queensland Junior Jug years on the best possible note.
Playing in her final year of eligibility in the event Hasson combined with Springsure's Brooke O'Keeffe and Yeppoon's Trudi Collins, formerly of Blackwater, to win the 2005 title at the Calliope Country Club last week.
This was Hasson's second Jug title after last winning the event when she made her Central Queensland team debut five years ago, joining Capricorn Country Club's Mikhaila Parsons and Gladstone's Renee Stoneley in the winning team.
"It's a great feeling,'' Hasson said.
The victory also ended Hasson's strong run from her home base of Clermont. Next week the 17-year-old will relocate to Brisbane to join the Queensland Academy of Sport (QAS) program on a one-year scholarship where she will work through areas like swing techniques, nutrition and psychology.
"I've always just played before, but now that I'm in the QAS it's starting to hit me that this is my chance (to go further),'' Hasson said.
Hasson first hit the golf course as an eight-year-old playing with her dad and two sisters. "I just really enjoyed it straight away and never thought of anything else.''
