Prestbury Golf Club’s young star Bel Wardle enjoyed a superb season in 2016 and is now working hard to prepare for another successful year in 2017, which is her last in junior ranks.
She had to recover from an injury in early January which saw her take two months off from playing and practising and also during the year she was also involved in taking her GCSE Exams.
But this did not hold back her run of outstanding results which saw her finish fifth in the English Girls championships, runner-up in the British Girls Championships at Royal St Davids, ninth in the British Ladies at Dundonald Links, eighth in the St Rule Trophy at St Andrews, retain the Cheshire Girls Championship at Royal Liverpool for the third time and tie first in the Birkdale Scratch.
She finished third in the England Girls Order of Merit and 11th in the Ladies Order of Merit- she is also 13th in the LGU Order of Merit and has a current World Amateur ranking of 355.
Wardle said: “ “In the coming season I will commence the year playing in the Portuguese Ladies Championships in January followed by the Spanish ladies Championships in early March and I am also a member of the England Girls u18 national squad.
”My goals for the season include trying to achieve a place in the Junior Solheim Cup Team for August as well as improving my game consistency whilst studying for my A levels.
“I will be looking to go to college in the USA in 2018 and have already had a number of scholarship offers but at this point in time I have still to make up my mind where to go.”
