Charley performs well at Scottish Open
September 5, 2019

A Golf Academy member continued his busy summer with a positive display against some of the best young prospects from across the continent.

Charley Simpson, a Year 9 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, travelled to Newmachar Golf Club in Hawkshill for the Scottish Boys’ U14 Open Championship, which took place from August 11-12.

The Golf Wales Academy prospect demonstrated his qualities on a testing course, and Charley opened the tournament with a round of 83 to leave him in mid-table on the leader board.

He turned in another accomplished effort during his second round to shave five strokes off his opening score, enabling him to finish as the third Welsh boy and 73rd overall in a field of 131.

This is another confidence-boosting tournament for Charley, who has brought his game on a considerable amount since joining Rydal Penrhos in Year 7, developing all areas of his game under the guidance and care of special coaching staff within the programme.

The Rhos on Sea Golf Club junior captain is working his way towards a scratch handicap and he also played a leading role for the Denbighshire squad that sealed a notable win over Cheshire last month.

Head of Physical Education Nicky Head, said: “Charley’s ongoing commitment is matched by his composure in a competitive environment, something that has seen him achieve a considerable amount in a short space of time.

“He deserves an enormous amount of credit for the way he conducts himself and represents Rydal Penrhos School, and Charley is sure to go on to great things if he continues to show the same sort of application going forward.”
