What a few months St Nicholas House pupil, Addie, has had over the summer. Having been selected to represent the British Junior Golf Tour at the IMG Academy Junior World Championships in San Diego, California in July, Addie proceeded to win the tournament for the second year in a row.
Addie shot a 65 in her practice round at the Torrey Pines course followed by a 72 in her first round. Competing against talented golfers from all around the world, 10-year old Addie put in an outstanding performance to retain the title of World Putting Champion.
Not being one to stand still for a moment, Addie attended the Monmouthshire Sport Awards this weekend where she had been nominated for the Sportswoman of the Year category. Up against some stiff competition from the likes of Commonwealth Cyclist, Becky James, Addie was announced the winner due to her incredible golfing achievements at such a young age. Ever-modest Addie was back at school this morning joining in with her Year 6 classmates at Christ College Brecon’s Junior Section, St Nicholas House. Head of Christ College, Emma Taylor, said, “This award is well-deserved as Addie is an exceptional talent. We are all thrilled for her to receive this recognition as she really is one to watch for the future. Apart from her obvious skill as a golfer, she is a lovely, down-to-earth young lady who is a pleasure to teach and have amidst our school community.”
