Teddy Crooke Selected for England Under 18 Regional Training Squad
Burghley Park Golf Club junior member Teddy Crooke has been selected for the England Golf Under 18 Regional (East Midlands) training squad.
Teddy attended a trials weekend at the home of England Golf, Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire in September.
Over a duration of two days, the trials consisted of 6 skill tests and 18 holes on the Hotchkin course. Teddy performed very well and finished in the top two for each test and was ranked number one overall.
A total of 6 boys were selected with Teddy, at just 12 years old, being the youngest by 3 years. The training programme takes place from October to May and involves a series of group coaching sessions, one to one coaching and matches against other England Golf regional teams.
The England Golf training programme is in conjunction with his main coach and Burghley Park Golf Club Golf Professional, Mark Jackson. At the end of a successful 2018 season where Teddy represented Lincolnshire Under 18’s, won the County Under 14 championship and competed well in the English and Scottish under 14 Opens, Teddy and his family would like to thank Mark Jackson for his coaching, on-going guidance and support.
A huge well done to Teddy from everyone at the Club on his achievement!
