Congratulations to Elizabeth Wilson!
Talented teen Elizabeth Wilson blew away the field with a Stableford score of 39 points to win the England Women’s Medal Final at Woodhall Spa. The 13-year-old from Norwood Park was thrilled to be crowned champion and take home a title which is regarded as the pinnacle for female handicap club golfers in England. Elizabeth, who plays off a handicap index of 2.3, produced an excellent level par scratch round on the Bracken Course. Her score of 39 points gave her a winning margin of three from runner up Katie Clark from Stoke by Nayland and Longridge’s Sally Tyler.
Elizabeth made it through from a club event before carrying on her good form at Belton Park in a regional qualifier – one of six held across the country. With dad Craig on the bag and helping to calm any nerves, Wilson was able to play freely and display the form which helped her make it to England trials this year. A former participant in Girls Golf Rocks at her home club Norwood Park, she now hopes to continue to step up the golfing ladder.
