Having a love for golf started at an early age for Winston Greyson. This young man is only 18 years old and has been golfing for 11 years.
Greyson received his first set of golf clubs at the age of seven from his dad, Jason, and his grandfather, as his dad is also a resolute golfer.
With just graduating from the Kipling high school this year, Greyson will spend his summer at Kenosee Lake. He works as part of the maintenance crew on the golf course there, and the rest of the time he is golfing.
Although Greyson plays baseball for the midget and senior teams in Kipling during the summer and hits the ice in winter as a goalie in hockey, but his passion is golfing.
His plan is to take a year off of schooling and go to work. He would love to work for the same company as his dad in the oil industry, come fall when the golf courses are closed up.
In school Greyson enjoyed math and science. Greyson said, “I’m kind of a numbers guy.” He is thinking about taking a business degree after a year, but for now it is work and golf.
The Maple leaf Junior Tour has at least 100 tournaments and he participates as much as he can. It spreads from Estevan to Warman, Regina to Saskatoon and over to Swift Current. The first two weeks in July he will play in Estevan, then he will be off to Regina and after that he will be on his way to Prince Albert. Of course, it is his hope to win at a couple of these.
For every serious golfer, it is their dream to head south, and Tiger Woods is always who they wish to meet or beat.
Greyson said, “I have great family support. My dad is always giving me advice or pointers.” He is very appreciative of his family’s support. He said, “although my mom isn’t into sports much, she is great support, along with my sister.” “I’m very thankful for this.”
It is his hope to get to Orlando, Florida one day. So, here is hoping that young Greyson will put Saskatchewan on the map someday through his golfing.
