Year 11 student, Lily Cook, has been selected for The England Golf Regional Squad after impressing coaches at an intensive training camp recently. Her regional training starts this weekend at Hever Castle Golf Club.
The overall programme will incorporate technical work, core training and gym work at The University of Eastbourne sports facilities. There are also workshops on nutrition as well as real time on course tuition at various courses throughout Kent. In addition to this, Lily will be entered into England Golf organised competitions.
The selection process took place at Pedham Place in Swanley and it was a full day session involving a 9 hole stroke play competition plus various practices covering chipping, putting and work on the driving range.
Meanwhile, Lily continues to play for the Kent Elite Squad and she also plays for the Kent second team. Her current handicap is 5.3 and she trains at Boughton Golf Club every day. Lily also is a member of Princes Golf Club in Sandwich as this gives her the opportunity to play a links course.
Lily has dedicated an enormous amount of time to her golf and her family have been incredibly supportive. Her school timetable has been adapted to enable her to commit time to improving her game and this latest recognition is well deserved.
