Margaret on cloud nine ahead of LA trip
In all the years they’ve been married, Margaret Roberts says she’s never received a Valentine’s Day gift from husband Ron quite like what she will be enjoying this year.
You see, it was Ron who referred Margaret into the Genesis Golf Link Cup draw to win a trip to LA for the upcoming Genesis Open at Riviera and while it was Margaret who won the prize, Ron is taking his fair share of the credit.
It just happens to be a bonus that the couple leave for the dream trip on February 14.
“We’re both beyond words with how pleased we are to have won,” says Margaret who has only been playing golf for two years.
“It’s not the sort of thing you would ever dream of doing but now that we’re going I honestly can’t wait.”
“I’ve never been to a golf tournament before, let alone one with Tiger Woods and all those other amazing players so it will be a dream come true.”
Not only do Margaret and Ron get to attend two days of the Genesis Open at the famed Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles they also get to play 36 holes at the Torrey Pines course along the way.
Margaret says she’s not even sure which she is looking forward to the most and that it might be a dead heat.
“I’m a bit nervous about playing there to be honest, I’ve never played a course like that,” she says.
“I’ve looked it up on the internet of course and it looks very different to our home club here at Yeppoon.”
“But I’m just going to try my hardest with the golf but make sure I enjoy it no matter what, that’s the main thing is to have fun.”
