This summer OF Rebecca Earl (fbn 09-18) celebrated a brilliant win and claimed her first international title at the English Women's Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship.
Rebecca won by one stroke with a score of 286 (-2) over 72 holes at the competition hosted by Ipswich Golf Club. Rebecca is 19 years old and currently studying in the US. She has just started her second year at Wofford College in South Carolina and spoke to us about her recent win:
How did it feel to win your first international title?
It was such a surreal feeling and took a while to sink in but I feel like I’ve been working really hard over the last year so it was nice to see some good results this summer.
Do you have any advice for aspiring golfers at Felsted?
Just have fun with it and focus on chipping and putting because that’s one of the most important parts of golf in my opinion.
What is a typical week like for you at university in terms of combining Golf and your studies?
We usually have workouts two or three times a week and we try to plan our schedules so that we finish class by 12pm so we will then practice in the afternoon. We have tournaments on Monday and Tuesdays usually so we miss quite a bit of class and just have to work hard to catch up.
