18th February 2013

Dorset teenager Georgia Hall has won the England Golf Silver Tee award for the way she combines her education with her top class golf career.

Georgia, 16, is both Europe's number one woman amateur golfer and a student at the LeAF Elite Athlete Academy in Bournemouth, where she is taking a BTEC National Diploma in Sport.

“I was very, very pleased to get the award because I do try to do my best at school,” said Georgia, who is a member at Remedy Oak. The award was announced at the annual general meeting of England Golf.

The BTEC suits her ideally: it's coursework based and offers her the flexibility to study around her international golfing commitments, and she can relate her studies to her own sporting experience.

“Golf comes first, but I want to keep my education going if I can,” said Georgia. “School is really, really good, they support my golf and always want to know how I'm getting on.”
 
There's a lot to relay. Georgia is the British girls' champion and she's the fifth ranked woman amateur in the world. Already this season the England international has made history by winning two gold medals at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival and she's been invited to play in the first women's Major of the season, the Kraft Nabisco Championship in California in April.

She's currently in Spain on warm weather training with England Golf and will go on to compete in the Spanish women's amateur championship.
