Nick Carroll, from Western Australia, loves golf. A player who really cares about their sport tends to have certain qualities. Simply feeling respect for the game is an important one; striving to improve and be the best golfer you can be – well that’s worth playing the game for in itself. Similarly, a genuine desire to help others to enjoy golf should also earn you a lucky bounce or two on the fairways.
Nick Carroll certainly makes the cut in all of the above. He lives with the condition of autism and this can get in the way for him at times. But his progress in playing golf, and his job working in golf, both say a lot about how he views the game, while at the same time perhaps reflecting what his friends and supporters think about Nick.
His advice to others underlines it all: “Making new friends, enjoyment… I would say go out there, enjoy the experience… And anyone can help you out there. Don’t be frightened to go out and play.”more
It was a hugely exciting trip when Mr Trond Lia travelled with his son Rasmus from their home in Sweden, to Dubai, in November 2022. 21-year-old Rasmus had qualified for the season-ending G4D Tour Series Finale @ DP World Tour Championship – a dream come true, but hard in the making.
Rasmus had recovered from a serious skiing accident as a youngster, with life-changing injuries. In the years ahead, he put in so many hours of golf practice at their home in Dalarna, often when the snow had been falling outside in the long winters.
Here in Dubai, Rasmus – who played in his first EDGA event back in 2017 at the age of 16 – would shoot an excellent 72 on the final day to win the title by four shots. Follow this remarkable story here, all told to us by his super-supportive Dad, Trond Lia.more
