NZ Golf Camp beckons for rising stars


Levin's Brydie Hodge and Manawatu's Emma Clayton have been selected by the NZ Golf National Selection Panel to attend  a NZ Golf Regional Women's Camp at St  Peter's School in Cambridge from July 17-19.

Hodge, a 2010 Interprovincial team member has continued to improve in 2011  recording great scores at events all around the country. She lost the MWG Age Group title in a playoff to Clayton which is surely the start of a long term competition between the two. Clayton, named as reserve  for last years Interprovincial, has improved  quickly in the early stages of 2011 recording wins at the Age Groups and the South Island  Under 15's. She came to the eyes of the national  selectors after a  brilliant  76 in the final round of the NZ Strokeplay at  Russley.

The Women's Camp is part of the NZ Golf Talent Development Programme, designed to provide pathways for potential NZ representatives and  touring professionals. The  camp will be filled with sessions delivered by two Golf Professionals based on practice systems and on course performance, electronic analysis of all aspects of their games as well as a session with sports psychologist David Galbraith.
