PROMISING young golfers take part in special competition
5th November 2012


 PROMISING young golfers from five counties came together in a special competition to cap a season's hard work.

All the players are members of the County Academy programme in their home counties.

The CAP has been established as part of the nationwide campaign to introduce more people to golf as well as creating a pathway for young players to follow to help them fulfil their full potential.

The County Academy is aimed at those who show promise, but who may not be members of clubs or even have a handicap. It gives them the opportunity to develop their skills at a series of coaching sessions run by PGA qualified professionals.

It is organised by the county golf partnership, a combination of the union, ladies association and PGA in each of the five areas taking part in the tournament - Shropshire and Herefordshire; Staffordshire; Warwickshire; Leicestershire and Rutland; and Worcestershire.

The 18-hole medal competition involving 54 players was held at Robin Hood Golf Club in Warwickshire, with Leicestershire and Rutland taking top honours in the boys team competition and Warwickshire winning the girls event.

Staffordshire came third in the boys competition and fifth in the girls section.

But there were several notable individual performances.

Category winners included Alex Chapman (Trentham Academy, boys 12), Harrison Worley (3 Hammers Academy, boys 11), Holly Hunt (The Chase Academy, girls 13&14) and Morgan Thomas (The Chase Academy, girls 11&12). Anthony Jeffery (Craythorne Academy) finished second in the boys 15 age category.

The players selected for the Staffordshire squad were: Boys 15 - Anthony Jeffery (The Craythorne Academy); Boys 14 - Charlie Wallbridge (Trentham Academy); Boys 13 - Josh Hartland (Sedgley Academy); Boys 12 - Alex Chapman (Trentham Academy); Boys 11 - Harrison Worley (3 Hammers Academy); Boys 10 - Seth Staton (3 Hammers Academy); Boys 9 - Archie Munn (The Chase Academy)
Girls 13&14 - Holly Hunt (The Chase Academy); Girls 11&12 - Morgan Thomas (The Chase Academy); Girls 10&9 - Amelia Taylor (Trentham Academy)

The England Golf Partnership (EGP) brings together the amateur governing body, England Golf and the PGA, to grow the game with the support of the Golf Foundation and Sport England.

County Golf Partnerships, involving the county men's women's and professional organisations, are part of the EGP's Whole Sport Plan for golf and an integral part of its vision to make England the world's leading golf nation by 2020.
