September to December 2014.

Wow I've been so lax with my blog, i'm so sorry but we have been crazy busy lately.

Well lots happened last year from September to the end of the year.

So much to include and in no particular order.....

Jord was invited to his friend Laura's 16th birthday party, lovely girl and invites him every year and he got to catch up with the few kids from school he did get on with.

He has chosen to study for iGCSE History and iGCSE Business Studies so he has been working thru the syllabus and tutor marked assignments.

He had the Junior Awards Night at Rhondda Golf  Club were he got awards for winning the Easter Bowl, Wyn Hughes Cup, Gareth Hughes Cup, Tom Parry cup as a pair plus an award for being runner up in the Junior Handicap Club Championship and he also won Most Improved Golfer.

He was interviewed and had a photoshoot for being one of the RCT Future Champions and the article was a double spread in the South Wales Echo and also the Rhondda Leader.

He reached all his goals for the season for his golf.

He built a gaming PC from scratch.

He sat his GCSE Higher Level Maths tho he didnt get the result he hoped for so is resitting in June 2015.

He was in an article on the PGA website along with his coach promoting disabled golf and ISPSHanda.

Jordan was lucky and was awarded a bursary from RCT Future Champions for a custom fitting so got custom fitted with a new set of irons for golf.

He continued with his volunteering both volunteering at Valleys Golf inclusive classes and also at Brynmeadows First Swing academy.

He was in an article in the National Club Golfer magazine.

We go to home ed group every Tuesday in Bridgend.

We rescued a long term stray cat and Jord has helped with settling the new cat and helping him get used to being with a family and getting used to human interaction.

He also had a lesson with his coach at the Wales Open at Celtic Manor.

He volunteered with Golf Development Wales at the Wales Open at Celtic Manor.

He played with the Welsh Disabled Golf Association in the last competition of the season at St Andrews Major, not a course id ever pay to play again.

Obviously we had Christmas where he had lots a nice goodies like the gaming pc, new phone, new ipod and more.

He was lucky to go be able to go and watch his favorite band Skindred at The Globe but as my dad knows them Jord got to spend the day with them as well and was on the guest list. He also went to watch the DubWar gig in Newport again on the guest list and also helped my dad out with merchandise.

Two big things that I've kept for last......

Jord was asked to be an ambassador for Swansea Inclusive Futures program and has since also become a mentor for them as well. He was invited to the launch as an ambassador and gave an inspiring speech about inclusiveness in sport and volunteering. He also tried out wheelchair basketball and wheelchair rugby.

He also had the huge privilege of being asked to the Wales Open Gala Dinner and to play in the Wales Open ProAm. At the Gala Dinner he was presented with an award off ISPSHanda and The PGA in recognition of all he does for an in disabled golf, he got congratulated by Simon Kahn and had a photo with Jamie Donaldson. The following day he played the ProAm with Paul Lawrie and had a fantastic day plus got to say hello to Nicolas Colsaerts and also to Midori Myasaki who was over on behalf of Dr Handa.

All in all a fantastic and very full few months. We are now in February and this year is looking to be just as full and awesome so I look forward to keeping you up to date.
