County Junior Academy
Twenty eight of the best under-13’s golfers in Northamptonshire have accepted invites to be part of the NGL Elite Junior Development Programme for 2019.
Led by coaches Shane Rose, Adam Myers and Adam Chamberlain, the NGL are aiming to give the boys and girls the tools to develop their games to compete at the highest level in local, regional, national and international events.
The programme, which has the ambitious target of producing an Open champion within the next 20 years, includes six coaching sessions during the year, health and fitness advice, private lesson vouchers and academy team uniform.
Isaac Wakefield, who won the 2018 NGL Boys Nine-hole Grand Final, has been picked alongside Order of Merit champion Jack Meakin, and finalists Adam Haywood, Elliot Strickland, Oliver Godwin, Charlie Ingate, Ollie Walden, Oscar Bell and Isaac Redding.
Girls Nine-hole Order of Merit champion Olivia Barby joins Eleanor Hamilton, Eloise Ley and Demi Petruschke, while Ellie Horsted and Chelsey Sharp celebrated their selection by taking first and second respectively in Peterborough Milton’s Junior New Year’s Eve Stableford.
