England squads named for Germany trip

Ten players have been selected to represent England Golf at this year’s German Boys’ and Girls’ Open.

Four boys and six girls will fly the flag for England in the event staged at Golf Club St-Leon-Rot between 2-4 June.

The tournament is now in its 18th edition and is widely acknowledged as one of the continent’s premier competitions for junior golfers played over two testing courses on the one site.

Boys (clubs/counties represented)

  • Hugh Adams (Hagley, Worcestershire)
  • Seb Cave (Coxmoor, Warwickshire)
  • Dylan Shaw-Radford (Huddersfield, Yorkshire)
  • Tyler Weaver (Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk)

 

Girls (clubs/counties represented)

  • Rachel Gourley (Arcot Hall, Northumberland)
  • Olivia Lee (Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire)
  • Isla McDonald O’Brien (Shrewsbury, Shropshire)
  • Patience Rhodes (Burnham and Berrow, Somerset)
  • Maggie Whitehead (Close House, Northumberland
  • Lottie Woad (Farnham, Surrey)

Two hundred competitors (100 boys and 100 girls) will take part in the 54-hole stroke play event with no cut.

In addition to the main honours, there is a prize for the leading under 16 boy and girl at the 36-hole stage.

Players in both squads have a chance to make history. No English boy or girl has ever won the German Open title with home-based players dominant since the tournaments began in 2004.
