Treble joy for Golf Academy star Reuben
5th April 2018

A talented Golf Academy star at Rydal Penrhos has secured three notable honours ahead of his international appearance.

Reuben Bather, a Year 10 pupil at the school, added to his series of recent accolades at the ISGA Northern Open competition, which was held at Fleetwood Golf Club earlier the month.

The 14-year-old was in brilliant form once again to produce a one-under-par score of 71, which managed to secure first place in his age category.

This also resulted in a third placed finish overall in a field that consisted of U18 and College level golfers, which further highlights his immense promise in the sport.

As a result of his fantastic effort, the one handicapper has now been invited to represent the school in the David Quinn Invitational tournament in September, where he will play against the very best junior golfers in the country.

This is often a springboard into US collegiate golf, with American Universities invited to scout emerging talent from the Independent School ranks.

Reuben was given another honour recently after Maesdu Golf Club in Llandudno appointed him as Junior Captain for the upcoming season, where he will lead the section in a number of competitions throughout a busy campaign.

The Academy star is gearing up for his latest Welsh appearance at the Quadrangular U16 Tournament in Holland next week, after earning his spot by impressing during a selection weekend at Newport Golf Club, where he shot a 75 gross in difficult conditions.
