Crows gun Charlie Cameron shares love of golf

Adelaide Crows speedster Charlie Cameron has visited the West Lakes Golf Club to speak with a group of juniors from the clubs Aboriginal Golf Academy.

Cameron a refreshing young man, spoke to the group about his journey in the AFL so far and his love of the game of golf.

Playing off a handicap of 12 and a member of the West Lakes Golf Club himself, Cameron said golf is his release from AFL football and its demands, with the commitment now eight-hour days across all aspects of footy.

Cameron is one of the many AFL players who have the 'golf bug' along with high profile players including; Taylor Walker, Travis Boak, Jack Riewoldt and Stevie Johnson who regularly hit the fairways.

The West Lakes Aboriginal Golf Academy is offering free weekly professional golf sessions each Tuesday through to 26 September for ages 5 to 16 years both male and female.

The good news for the juniors was that Cameron said his ultimate goal is to play off a low single figure handicap and with Tuesday being his regular AFL day off, he intends to be around the club which coincides with the academy program.
