England teenagers head for Spain

 





They are Nottinghamshire’s Katie Best (pictured right) from Select Midlands, Essex player Daisy Dyer from Select South East, Yorkshire’s Helen Searle from Select North and Devon’s Georgina Snow from Select South West.

The players have been picked for the training in recognition of their commitment and progress. They will spend five days at the La Cala resort, near Marbella, from February 18-22, and will work with EWGA coach Steve Robinson and EWGA physiotherapist Su Barry.    

The teenagers will focus on fitness, the short game and course management before taking part in a match against the EWGA U18 squad, who will also be training at La Cala.  

EWGA’s national training manager Claire Lilley said: “This is an intense week which will be extremely beneficial to the players’ golf development.”

Katie Best, 18, plays at Sherwood Forest Golf Club and was the runner-up in the 2007 English girls’ championship. She is the Nottinghamshire girls’ champion and a past winner of the Midland girls’ U18 championship and the Midland schools’ championship. Katie plays off one handicap.

Daisy Dyer, 16, plays at Chigwell Golf Club. She is the Essex girls’ champion and also the winner of the girls’ county matchplay title. Daisy took up golf four years ago and is already down to four handicap. Her aim for 2008 is: “To get down to scratch and win a big event.”

Helen Searle, 15, plays at West End Golf Club. Last season she represented England in the European Young Masters, when the mixed team won the silver medal. She also won the Northern girls’ U16 title, was runner up in the Scottish Open U16 championship and played for England schools against Scotland. Helen plays off three.

Georgina Snow, 17, is a member at Royal North Devon Golf Club. Her handicap has tumbled over the past three seasons, from 36 in 2005 to her present level of four. She has twice qualified for the final of the Abraham Trophy for England’s most improved girl golfers, while also making her mark in Devon and the south-west.

Steve Robinson, from Malton & Norton Golf Club in Yorkshire, coaches EWGA’s Performance and Select North squads. Su Barry, from Kenilworth, is  the Select Midlands’ physiotherapist.
