Imogen drives home best girl trophy in Young Masters tournament

Princethorpe College pupil Imogen Holmes has come up trumps in the Warwickshire Young Masters Golf Tournament held at the Stoneleigh Deer Park Golf Club on April 14th. The Year 7 pupil who has been enjoying golf for the past four years took part in the competition against 20 other girls. Feeling quite confident on the par three course Imogen knew the ground well and wasn’t at all phased by the 140 yard drives.

‘Because I play regularly on that course I felt as if I knew all the holes,’ she explained.‘It was still a surprise to found out that I had been awarded the cup for best girl.’ She achieved an even 54 for each round.

Imogen, who plays golf every week, says it is a sport she would like to continue with. Her lessons are developing her confidence in all aspects of the game but she agrees that ‘it takes a lot of learning’ to get it right. She also plays left back for the College Hockey team and explains that occasionally the two sports can get a little mixed up but generally they compliment each other.

Clearly this confident young sportswoman is getting something right with this prestigious award to her credit.

Princethorpe College Director of Sport, Mr Neil McCollin, praised the 11 year old’s success,

‘We have had a number of very strong golfers at Princethorpe through the years. We will continue to watch Imogen’s progress with great interest.At such a young age she promises to deliver further results in future events.’
