Athletic Information

Lucas came in contact with the golf sport at the age of 14 but he started to play it seriously at the age of 16. It became obvious that he was very talented and he successfully competed for the junior golf team at the Goyer Golf & Country club. At the age of 17 , Lucas started to play in tournaments and despite his lack of experience he was performing very well.

Since Lucas started to practice every day it resulted in a tremendous lowering of his handicap from +8.2 in 2010 to +2.7 February 2013

Lucas is a consistent golf player and a fast learner. Lucas biggest strength on the golf course is his short game and he has the ability to adjust his swing in a very short amount of time, without it having major effects on his results.
