Terrific wins for local ladies
by Stephanie Thompson
Former local Peter Johns is
six months into an American
college golfing scholarship, and
says he’s living out his dream.
The 19-year-old, who hailed from
East Murray Area School, was offered
a ‘full ride’ scholarship for his golf-
ing abilities last year and is currently
ranked number one at New Mexico
Johns said he was enjoying the
American college life and seeing
improvements in his performance.
“I still have a little way to go, but I
have definitely improved since I left,”
“Being a part of the college system,
playing every day and having a con-
stant schedule to stick to has definitely
helped me get a lot better.”
The next few months are busy for
Johns, with a series of tournament and
“We have four big ones this semes-
ter,” he said.
After first picking up a golf club
at a young age, Johns moved from
East Murray Area School in year 9
to Henley High School for its athlete
Johns is studying at university this
year, completing entry courses to leave
his career options open.
“Once I finish my two years at this
college, I can go into any degree that
I want to when I move onto my next
college,” he said.
Johns returned to the family home in
Kingston-On-Murray over Christmas
and expects to return to Australia later
this year during summer break.
While Johns said he is enjoying his
time in America, he said Australia
would always be home.
“The food is definitely the most
extreme change for me,” he said.
“They love deep frying their food.”
The American dream
Former local Peter Johns is currently playing golf in the US, after being
awarded a prestigious scholarship last year.
