14-year-old Sam Meek on Tours

 

Being the son of Blaine Meek, you would somehow know that golf is a big part of Sam’s life.

Sam Meek was tagged along by his father at the Kawartha Golf and Country Club in Peterborough, Ontario at a very young age of four which led him to the concept, the fun and the feel of the sport.

“He would let me hit a few balls. My dad got me into it and I liked it right away,” says Sam who is now 14 years old. Liking golf that much made him good in playing the sport and eventually win at a provincial tournament. For the past six years, he has joined his dad at KGCC by being an official club member and has been seriously playing more in the competitive ranks for four years now.

Sam has now moved in the 14-16 class of the Durham Junior Golf Tour Championship where he started in the under-13 class division two years ago. He emerged victorious in five out of nine Durham series tournaments that put him into the top spot. He also got his first GAO Ontario Junior Golf Tours Championship just recently.

“I was a year older than last year and more experienced. I was the oldest in the division and taller than most. That helped,” shares the cheerful young man. It may seem obvious that golf is his favorite sport but Sam admits that he plans to play other sports like football and basketball during his high school at Crestwood Secondary School.

“I like golf because it is intriguing,” says Sam. “I look at the people on tour and they inspire me. I especially like Rickie Fowler and Bubba Watson, for the way they play and how they carry themselves. As for the game, I like everything about it. I will go as far as I can go with it.”
