Couper was quickly hooked and showed great potential from an early age and is now the Mossman U18 champion, Men’s A Grade match play champion and recently won the club pairs championship event with older brother Wade.
While in Sydney, Couper will have the opportunity to meet some of his idols and the biggest golfers in the world such as Jason Day, Adam Scott, and Cameron Smith who will be competing in the Australian Open Pro-Am.
For Couper, it will be the first time he will get to see a professional golfer of that level play live and said getting to see the players who have inspired him is very exciting.
“I don’t really have a favourite player, I love them all but if I had to pick I think I would probably pick Cameron Smith, he’s really good,” he said.
After wrapping up in Sydney, Couper is immediately onto the next tournament which is the
Greg Norman Junior Masters on the Gold Coast.
This will be the fourth consecutive year Couper has competed at the Greg Norman event, last year making the cut for the final round, finishing 13th overall and was the Nett Champion in his division.
Over the years Couper has competed in many tournaments making a name for himself amongst the junior golfing community.
