WELCOME TO 2023’s NEW GOLF SCHOLARS
AS THE GOLFING SEASON GETS UNDERWAY, WE ARE DELIGHTED WELCOME FOUR NEW GOLF SCHOLARS TO THE PROGRAMME.
Following a series of Scholar Open Days, four aspiring young golfers have been invited to Wentworth Club as Junior Members. As Scholar and Junior Members, they will be allocated a dedicated Professional who will provide coaching throughout the years. They will have full access to a busy calendar of golf events and have the opportunity to represent Wentworth Club in external competitions. Throughout their time in the programme the Foundation will provide support on and off the courses with professional advice and guidance as they progress through their golfing journey. On Saturday 4th March the new Scholars were invited to the Club for their induction session, whereby they got to meet the Trustees, Coaches, and fellow Scholars. We look forward to championing this year’s new joiners as we watch them develop their skills and are excited to see what the future holds for them.
Welcome Sam, Oscar, Seth and Amelia.
Sam Brown-Hall: Sam has only been playing golf for two years but already has quite the resumé. From shooting the course record in a competition at Hampton Court (63, -8) to now becoming a Wentworth Scholar. He is really excited about having the ability to play at such a prestigious club and is looking forward to jumping in headfirst into both Junior and Men’s Competitions. Sam’s favourite golfer is Tommy Fleetwood, because he is an exceptional player with a great attitude (and not to mention they look very similar)!
Oscar Lacey: Oscar has been playing golf for around five years, taking inspiration from his dad who was a pro in his 20’s. The opportunity to meet new people and continue to push his golf game further excites Oscar as this year he works towards playing off a plus figures handicap. Off the Course, Oscar thrives in social environments and enjoys his school life (his favourite subjects being Maths, English and PE).
Seth Chandler: Seth has been playing golf for two years and is humbled having been given the opportunity to use our lovely courses and great facilities. When he attended the BMW PGA, he had the chance to follow round and get a signature from his favourite golfer Matt Fitzpatrick, whom he admires for being a great player and an all-round ‘nice guy’. With help from his new coach, Seth is getting ready to push himself this year to reach his goal of having a single figures handicap.
Amelia van de Mortel: Amelia has been playing golf for six years now and is ready to progress onto the new chapter of her golfing career. She cannot wait to develop her golf through learning from the great coaches we have here at Wentworth. Outside of Golf, Amelia loves all things sport, her favourites being: ballet, swimming and netball. Her favourite golfer is Tiger Woods who encourages her to do better as she strives to get her handicap below 20 by the end of the year.
