Robert Afia from Highgate GC is set to represent the UK in the European Senior Golf Association 70+ and 75+ championships in Basel in June 2020.
Robert is a member of the UK Senior Golf Association which organises scratch golf for the over 55’s, and his position in the 2019 order of merit won him a place in the team of 4 to play in the Super Masters (75+) team trophy competition over 3 rounds on the Basel Golf and Country Club and the Golf du Rhin Chalampé.
Robert was 1 handicap and captain of golf at Bristol University at 19, but played little golf in all the work and family years, apart from a short spell in the 90’s. Coming back to golf on retiring at 70, he got down to 7 to qualify for membership of the UKSGA despite a new knee, a new hip, and a back fusion.
He does regular Pilates for strength and flexibility and injury prevention, and recommends an afternoon nap as often as possible!
Middlesex Golf wishes him the very best and we will all be keeping a close eye the tournament.
