Since a very young age Sophie has played golf and with her continued dedication and enthusiasm toward the game, her performances have started to gain the attention across a higher level.
Sophie had been selected in a number of Junior Development teams and squads both across her region as well as State Squads. Recently Sophie has been selected in the NSW Junior State team to contest the Interstate Series in Tasmania in April, no mean feat as there is only 5 girls across the State of NSW chosen to represent.
Prior to the Interstate Series, Sophie has also been invited to play in the Australian Womens Classic at Bonville and then NSW Open at Forster Tuncurry the following week. Both of these events are Australasian Womens Professional Tour Events. Due to the fact that Sophie is currently studying Year 11, she made the decision to play only the event at Bonville as she will then travel to Hobart the week after to play the Australian Junior Titles at the Tasmania Golf Club in Hobart. The following week she then travels to the North Coast of Tasmania to play the Australian Interstate Series at Ulverstone.
Sophie has just recently finished playing Womens Open Grade Pennant for the St Michaels Club in Sydney, the highest level of Women’s Pennant in the State. Across the course of the last 10 weeks, Soph has travelled to Sydney every weekend, firstly for practice and then for a 6 week season followed by the Semi Final, which her team unfortunately went down to the Australian Golf Club. Sophie won 5 of her matches, halved 1 and lost just the 1 match for the entire season, having one of the best win / loss ratios amongst any of the participating players.
The future is bright for Club Catalinas latest golfing protégé with plenty of opportunities starting to come her way.
