AN AMBASSADOR for disabled golfers is raising the profile of the sport while spreading the word of free coaching sessions.

Warren Clark, from Portsmouth, is the junior ambassador for the Golf Association and is looking to encourage more youngsters to take up the sport.

The 14-year-old, who has learning disabilities, wants to show others that they can still enjoy a round of golf.

Warren’s mum Dawn Osborn said: ‘It’s a nice thing he is doing.

‘It’s a case of showing people with disabilities that they can get involved in all kinds of sports.’

The two-hour sessions at Southwick golf club, in Pinsley Drive, will be held on August 4, 11, 18 and 25, from 10am.

The sessions are free for young people with disabilities or £6 for able-bodied golfers.
