YEAR 7 PUPIL, ADELAIDE, FROM GWENT ENTERED THE MONMOUTHSHIRE LADIES’ COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIPS 3-DAY EVENT LAST WEEK. NOT ONLY DID SHE WIN THE EVENT BUT IS THE YOUNGEST COMPETITOR EVER TO TO DO SO!
Year 7 golfer, Addie, has been making waves on the golf course ever since she was old enough to swing a club. Having started playing golf at the age of four, Addie has represented her country and Great Britain at various prestigious junior golf events and competitions around the world. In 2015, Addie won the World Putting Competition at the IMG Academy Junior World Golf Championships in California and will be representing Great Britain again this summer at the famous Torrey Pines event.
At the end of last week, Addie entered the Monmouthshire Ladies’ County Championships 3-day event with no expectations other than to join in and enjoy the valuable experience of playing with adult and older competitors. After day 1, Addie’s parents were taken aback with Addie’s joint lowest gross score amongst the top 16 women which meant she would progress to the second day of the tournament. On day 2, Addie played 18 holes in the morning and won through to the afternoon and ended up winning on the 18th hole! Friday saw the semi-final in the morning at 8am which went on for four hours with Addie paired up against a much more experienced adult golfer. By lunch time, Addie had won through to the afternoon final winning the competition on the 16th hole!
Many congratulation to Addie who not only won the event as the youngest competitor ever to do so but was congratulated on her etiquette and her professionalism amongst adult competitors. For someone who won’t become a teenager until the end of the year, this is another fantastic achievement from one of our budding young stars.
