Pickering brothers spearhead Wales challenge

22nd March 2013

Two brothers from Pontypridd will spearhead the Welsh effort in the Under 16's Quadrangular golf event to be hosted at Southerndown Golf Club at the end of the month.

Dan and Jamie Pickering are in the Wales team to take on Scotland, Ireland and Holland on home soil, from March 25-28.

On the same week Wales travel to Rosslare to take on Ireland in a under 18 fixture and the team have been boosted by Cradoc's Charlie Spencer-White, who is flying back specially from his home in America to take part in the match.

“These are the first teams picked under the new Golf Union of Wales selection policy, which hopefully is clearer for everyone to follow,” explained Ben Waterhouse, Golf Union of Wales director of performance.

“As the season goes on, then selection will be based on more evidence. The aim is to make the system as transparent and consistent as possible for the benefit of those included in the teams and – perhaps more importantly – for those who have been left out to see what they need to do to be selected next time.

“We are particularly looking forward to hosting the quadrangular event at Southerndown and hope the team can make the most of home advantage.

“They have recently played on the course to try and make the most of the opportunity against three strong teams. The challenge of Ireland and Scotland will be familiar to everyone, while Holland are emerging as one of the major European powers at this level.

“It is also a boost for the Boys team to have Charlie available for this international match in Ireland. It shows his commitment to representing his country.” ”
