Voysey books a national place
6:00pm Thursday 29th August 2013 in Sportsview
WHARTON Park youngster Charlotte Voysey has won a regional competition to book her place at a national tournament.
She clinched victory in the 12 to 14-year-old girls tour group section at the Midlands Skills Challenge at The Warwickshire Golf Club.
Now she will take on some of the country’s best young golfers at Woodhall Spa in Lincolnshire on Saturday, September 28.
Voysey was one of more than 1,500 children nationally who began training in early Spring at their respective clubs.
Upon completing two official challenges of five golf disciplines, scores were entered on the national database at England Golf and from the leader board for each age category the three highest scoring children in eight age categories were invited to one of four regional finals.
This is the culmination of a successful year for the junior, who recently won the Lady Captain’s Day competition at Wharton Park, as well as coming second in the County Girls 18-hole Trophy competition at Gaudet Luce.
She attends county academy training sessions at Wharton Park, under the tutelage of club professional Angus Hoare, and has also been selected to play for Worcestershire in a match against Staffordshire.
