BLIND golfer Glenn Niciejewski will take on some of the best golfers Australia has ever produced in a bid to reach the 2016 World ­Championships.

The Loganlea resident will play in a Pro-Am event at Royal Pines with former world No. 1 players Karrie Webb and Yani Tseng on February 11 as he prepares for the coming year on the Blind Golf Australia circuit.

Niciejewski garnered the opportunity through coach and former ladies circuit player Lee Harrington who has helped the golfer fine tune his skills in recent times.

“I met Lee through a lesson I had at Palm Meadows and she has been awesome ever since,” Niciejewski said.

GOLFER Glenn Niciejewski has done it again, claiming victory in his category of the Blind Golf Australia Open Championships in Western Australia.

Held at Collier Park in Perth, the Australian Championships was preluded by the Western Australian Open, in which Niciejewski came runner up in his B1 – totally blind – category.

Niciejewski said he was disappointed with the result, as he was leading the field across all blind and visually impaired golfers at the Australian event until a bunker saw him come undone on the 17th hole.

“I was winning – I was under par – until I got to the 17th hole – a par five,” he said.

“I was there 80m out with a nine iron in my fourth, and I shanked it right.Where did it go, into the bunker, I hit it too soft.

“Seven shots out of that bunker… that’s where I lost it.”

Niciejewski then had birdie on the final hole, but lost the tournament across all categories by five.

He still managed to place as overall net winner for B1 after his handicap of 53.

The Championship was the final competition for the year, with Niciejewski to next compete in Victoria in March.

Niciejewski is now also ranked fourth on the order of merit.

Niciejewski is ably assisted by his caddy, Scott Downing, without whom he says he would not be able to play golf.

03.10.12 – Third Title For Blind Golfer

Third Title for Blind GolferA career-best back nine has helped Glenn Niciejewski seal his third consecutive Blind Golf Australia title.

The Crestmead resident has continued to press for the No.1 overall spot at the end of the circuit, claiming seven points after being named the New South Wales Open B1 nett champion.

Niciejewski fired 73 on the first day and 51 on the second to finish with a three over par 124, 50 shots clear of second place.

The Chambers Pines player said it was his faultless back nine which set up his dominant win.

‘‘Everything was just coming off perfect – my drivers were hitting the middle and all my shots were great,’’ Niciejewski said.

‘‘It is the lowest back nine score I have ever had at any competition.’’

The talented player also recorded a 230 gross score, the best out of any B1 player at the competition and secured the closest to the pin award on the first day. The title has made it three from three for Niciejewski who won the Victorian and Australian stableford championships earlier this year and the in-form stroke player said it couldn’t have happened without his caddie and wife Jodie Niciejewski.

‘‘She did a great job on the bag and lined me up perfectly over the two days,’’ Niciejewski said.

He will now prepare to keep his perfect record intact when he takes to the Western Australia stableford championship and Australian Open this month and November.

GOLFING dynamo Glenn Niciejewski has again blitzed his competition to come out as New South Wales Open B1 Champion.

In the second lowest game he has played, Niciejewski was already nine shots in front on the first day of the two-day competition, held at Five Dock, Sydney.

“On the second day I just totally killed them by about 40-45 shots,” he said.Golfer Glen Wins Another Title

“I hit 127 on the first day off the stick and then 104.

“It was perfect day down there – we played in the sunshine and the rain as well.”

Usually assisted by caddy Scott Downing, this time Niciejewski, who is blind, was aided by his wife Jodie.

“I played heaps better with Jodie, maybe she puts the pressure on me,” he said.

The NSW Open accolade will join B1 Champion trophies from the Victoria Open Stableford Championships and the Australian Open Stableford Championships, all gained this year.

But despite his success, Niciejewski’s goal to gain an overall win across all the blind and visually impaired categories has eluded him thus far.

Across all the categories, Niciejewski finished ninth at the NSW Open event.

“Ninth is not the highest I’ve finished overall – in Adelaide in May this year I finished sixth,” he said.

“I want just to win a tournament outright, be the champion by myself.

“I’m playing against some sighted players and they can obviously see more than I can, I just have to play low golf. Like I always say – go low or go home.”

The NSW win moves Niciejewski to fifth on the order of merit in line to play in the Worlds competition in 2014, of which he needs to be in the top eight to qualify.

He will next compete in Perth in the West Australian Open and the Australian Open at the end of the month.
