Chantell Greaves plays out of a bunker during the World Deaf Golf Championships in America.DUNEDOO’S Chantell Greaves has returned home from the United States after representing Australia at the World Deaf Golf Championships.
Greaves spent an action-packed few days travelling to Traverse City, Michigan and practising before the action got under way.
Staying in luxury at a resort that had three golf courses attached to it, the players were treated like royalty and the fine dining and pampering obviously paid off as Greaves and the Australian team enjoyed great results.
Conditions hindered players on day one of the event, with Greaves firing a score of 91, which she repeated on day two.
A few tips from her caddy helped her improve to shoot an 88 on the third day.
She followed that form through to finish the event with another score of 88 in the final round to finish with a 72-hole total of 358.
“When I left Dunedoo I was hoping to get into the top 10, and I came eighth in the world,” Greaves said via email.
“Our Aussie women’s team came second. It was a great experience for me and I have the people of Dunedoo and the district golfing community to thank for all their donations and words of support that helped me to achieve something that I never dreamed possible.”
After impressing during the event, Chantell even had a warm invitation from one of her fellow competitors.
“I met the champion for 2014, Patty Lopez, and she asked me if I was coming to the World Deaf Golf Championships in 2016 at Denmark,” Greaves said.
“That gives me two years to save, and if I’m invited to.
“As for now I hope to play in a few of the Deaf Golf NSW events and the Australian Championship in April next year.”
