You may have one or two people in your family who enjoy a round of golf every now and then. But the Cox family have taken it a step further and this year, Ryan Cox has won the Colts (Juniors) Club Championship, the Men’s Mid-Week Club Championship and the main Men’s Club Championship, while his sister Ellisha was named Ladies Club Champion!
This achievement is impressive enough but when you realise that Ryan is only 19 and Ellisha only 15, you may start to understand just how talented this local family is. Add to this the fact that this is the third year In a row that Ryan has been Warley Park’s Men’s Club Champion, and that their father, Michael also won the Mid-Week Club Championship in both 1987 and 1991 and we’re willing to bet that golf is a pretty popular subject in the Cox house!
We are delighted to see such talent and passion in one family. This August, Ryan started at New Mexico Junior College in Hobbs, New Mexico. He secured a full scholarship based on his golfing CV and is part of an 8 man squad representing the college at tournaments throughout the USA. This month he qualified for the 5 man team – the only freshman to do so – and travelled to Colorado, where the team came an impressive third.
With this calibre of golfing at such a young age, we are confident that he will continue to excel… who knows, we may some day see him in a major tournament.
