Ranked in the top 18% of golf players in England, Amelia, 12 years old, has her eyes set on becoming IMG Junior World Champion.
Amelia has been playing golf for just four years and has a handicap of 17. She is now rated by the World Handicap System (WHS) as being in the top 18% of players in England.
Amelia competes in both the British Junior Golf Tour and the European Junior Golf Tours. She had her second win of the season at the notoriously tough Leicestershire Golf Club. Amelia’s most recent win was at Gatton Manor Surrey on September 4th (pic). She also won the nett girls open at the BJGT event at Gatton Manor Hotel and Country Club and 2nd in the gross.
In July Amelia flew out to San Diego with the British junior team to play in an IMG World Championship. Amelia goes to San Diego not only representing the uk but the whole of Europe in the girls 11-12 age category!
When asked about the Rising Star Award and the impact it has had, Tanya McGinty, Amelia’s mum said, ‘All Amelia wants to do is play golf. She would like to eventually go to golf college then obtain her tour card. This award will assist Amelia on a step towards her ultimate goal. Thank you Rising Stars!’
This season Amelia qualified to represent the UK in The World Stars of Junior Gold Championship to be held in Las Vegas in June. “It will be a great experience and I’m very proud and excited to be representing my country playing golf in America” said Amelia
