England Golf squad player Annabell Fuller is keeping the family flag flying with a string of wins in the USA.
The 13-year-old from Roehampton in Surrey is following in the footsteps of her older sister, Sammy – an England international – who has been winning in the USA since she was nine.
Annabell, a member of England Golf’s U16 regional South squad, has just scored her latest success with a 10-shot win in the 12-13 year-old girls’ championship in the Junior Honda Classic.
She had a 36-hole score of two-under par on the Fazio course at the PGA National in Florida and, says dad, Ashley: “She played some great golf.” Annabell was one over par in the first round and then stormed her way to the turn in four-under in the second round. She had a couple of bogeys on the way in but birdied the 15th.
Earlier she won her age group title in the US Kids Holiday Classic by two shots, on the same course. Before that, she tied for the win in the Doral-Publix Junior Classic, but lost a title play-off with Mexico’s Cory Lopez. The two girls were eight shots clear of the third-placed player.
In addition, Annabell was third in the 13-14 age group at the Florida Junior International Championship, where her sister, Sammy, won the 15-17 title. It was the 16-year-old’s record seventh win in this championship. Click here for the full story.
Now both girls will tee up in this week’s Harder Hall women’s invitational at Sebring, on Florida’s Orange Blossom Tour. Among the other English players in the field is international Inci Mehmet. Charley Hull won this event in 2012.
