PROFILE SERIES : FELIX

IMG_3964

Felix. Smooth.

Felix is a Founding Member of the GWT. Matching his handsome good looks with crowd-pleasing erratic play, he always has the largest galleries, longest queues for autographs and makes a mint off his instagram.

Felix is noted for his impeccable standards of honesty and high levels of empathy, and has even let Basil win a Bougle because he felt bad for him. He is always there at the right time with a positive word and a pat on the back, and gives the hardest high fives ever.

Of course he loves to win as well, but he is not a slave to the result. This balanced approach has not stopped him racking up the wins, especially in his pet event, the Matchplay Masters.

HIS GAME:

Felix hits the ball Pro tour distances – think 300m drives and 9 irons that go 160m. Consequently he is too long for most courses on the GWT, and is often trying to hit it 85% power, which is tricky to do. Maybe this has something to do with his crowd-pleasing wild shot-making?

If he is ON, look out, he will play at Basil level and be miles under his handicap. And he is the Tour’s best matchplay exponent (just in front of Ian).

HIS AMBITIONS:

Simple. Claim the Wanderererer to make up for the one Leroy pinched, win some more Bougles and have a great time. Oh, and get his handicap down to single figures someday.
