BURNHAM and Berrow Golf Club golfer, Patience Rhodes has been named in the England girls' squad for 2022.

Rhodes was crowned English Under 18 Girls’ champion thanks to fabulous win at Malton and Norton GC.

She joins Northumberland duo Rachel Gourley and Maggie Whitehead, and Surrey’s Lottie Woad who return to national level for another season.

The remaining six golfers are making their debut at this level.

Jennifer Henderson, England Golf’s assistant performance manager, said: "We are privileged to work with such a talented group for the 2022 season.

"Whilst the 10 players selected represent a larger squad than previous years, this is testament to the great work going on in our regional network – it’s fantastic to see more and more younger players coming through at a national level.

"As part of the national squad, these players will have access to world class coaching facilities at Woodhall Spa throughout the year and the opportunity to work with a number of leading coaches.

"I’m confident this group of players will shine representing England either in these team events or at an individual level in national and international championships."
