May to August 2015

We have had a busy but also very tough few months. Jordan has struggled massively with his depression and anxiety and autism being pretty bad plus hypermobility causing a lot of pain and the worst has been his tourettes being really bad and causing him to have to take 2 weeks off golf due to soft tissue damage. But despite this he has battled on and has done lots.....

In no particular order :)

He has continued to volunteer at golf coaching with both First Swing Academy and also Golf Development Wales. He was with Golf Development Wales at the Celebrity Cup and even dressed as their mascot.

He has spent lots of time helping with the animals and helping settle the newer of the 2 ex strays.

When he has felt up to it he has played golf including Junior comps and Junior 1st team matches. He also as Junior Captain goes up every Wednesday to the Blue Box comps with the little kids and plays along side them. He also qualified for the Junior Club Championships but got beaten at the semi final.

He took part in the Swansea Inclusive Futures Beach Sports Day and other volunteering events with them as well.

Jord has become a member of the Gold Development Wales National Youth Panel which is a fantastic opportunity.

Jord also sat 3 GCSE's in May and June, Maths, History and Business Studies. This year he has chosen to study Sports Psychology and English Language and is also doing his PGA Level 1 in October.

He is still on the R.C.T. Future Champions program and also represented them at The Young Carers Awards and did a speech and presented an award.

He played a few golf competitions including Royal Porthcawl Junior Open, Tenby Junior Open and WDGA St Mellons.

Every Tuesday we go to Bridgend Home Ed group where he catches up with all his friends.

My sister visited from Surrey so it was a lovely evening to catch up with his cousin that we don't get to see much of.

Jord also had two amazing opportunities.Firstly he was invited to play on the ISPSHanda team at the LET Masters ProAm, it was an incredibly hot day but he had an amazing day, saw old friends and played really well in the ProAm and the team just missed out on 3rd place. The other was he was invited to the Ian Poulter Invitational at Woburn,an amazing day where he got to meet his idol, play an amazing course and take part in QnA with his idol.

We are hoping the next couple of months things will ease for Jord and he will be able to find life a bit easier and get lots more done.
