On a three-day golf course in Florida back in 2010, coaches were pleasantly surprised at Ffion’s enthusiasm for the game and ‘raw talent’, despite her young age and lack of experience on the youth circuit. Following the course, they advised that Ffion enrolled at her local golf club when she returned home, and continue with her development.

Ffion has shown tremendous potential, and in 2011, she won an incredible 18 tournaments locally and nationally, culminating with the crowning glory of named ‘UK Kids Under-8 Champion’ and being chosen to represent Team GB.

Ffion comfortably combines her education and golf commitments with the support of her teachers, who recognise her sporting potential. Tournaments and competitions are supported with coursework prepared by Ffion’s school. Above all, Ffion thoroughly enjoys the game and the friends she meets through playing.
