Once again, #TeamCollegeSportsAmerica have had a busy month with plenty of events and some great results coming in from our players!
First off, Director Nick Flynn and European Golf manager Elliot Groves headed off to the British Boys Amateur Championships in Kent followed by the British Girls Amateur Championships in York. Both competitions are held in high regard, with the previous Girls champion now playing on the European tour and the previous Boys champion becoming a student athlete at the University of Oregon.
Over the two events, the team saw 27 College Sports America recruits play with 12 making the cut. Not only that, but two female players – Katie Stephens and Beth Norton received scholarship offers whilst on course to which both of them accepted. Some amazing golf was played throughout the competition and a special shoutout goes to Riccardo Fantinelli who made his way into the final of the Boys Championships!
Shortly after, the team headed up to the West Midlands to watch the Midland U16s followed by the Peter McEvoy English Open. Here they saw several of our recruits playing some fantastic golf, and most excitingly, watched 2022 recruit Olivia Lee take the trophy, topping off an incredible season for her.
This month also saw one of our current College athletes, Annabell Fuller, qualify for the AIG Women’s Open. She then made the cut and finished in a very respectable 61st out of 140 of the best professional female players in the world. She’s done herself, College Sports America and the University of Florida proud!
Another big congratulations to 2022 athlete, Leonie Wulfers for beating a strong field and taking the trophy at the German National Girls Championship. She shot 75,68,68, 4 under par for the last 2 rounds! Leonie has committed to Florida Gulf Coast University and will be heading over there in the fall of 2022.
Lukas Zeiler also had a successful time at the Austrian U18s Matchplay Championship with a great win this month! Lukas is a member of the Diamond Country Club with whom we have a successful partnership with.
Going to these events is vital to our team and the relationships we have built with College coaches. When talking to coaches about our players, it’s important for us to be able to give a detailed description of each players strengths, weaknesses and playing style in order to find the right match between player and coach. Witnessing their game first-hand at events is the best way to make sure we are as informed as possible.
