Texas trip for Chris Lloyd to HP

Boys' Championship

Chris Lloyd, one of the most talented young golfers in England, will represent the English Golf Union (EGU) in the HP Boys Championship at Carlton Woods in Texas on 14th - 16th February. The 17-year-old from Bristol will compete in an international field of 78 players over 54 holes of stroke play over the Fazio-designed Championship Course.
Lloyd has enjoyed a steady rise on the national scene since winning the Gloucestershire under-15 title in 2004. He finished tied third in the weather-curtailed Reid Trophy at Gosforth in 2006 and has been an Under-16 International for the past two years.
In 2007, the Kendleshire golfer won the South-west Under-16 boys' championship, tied first in the North of England Under-16 Championship and won the Hazards Salver for the best score by an Under-16 when finishing runner-up in the Carris Trophy at Saunton.
Last year, Lloyd completed his maiden overseas success when winning the Ernie Els World Junior title in South Africa. He also won the North of England Under-16 title outright and finished runner-up in the Gloucestershire Championship. He was also a member of the winning England team in the Honda Junior Championship in Japan and finished fifth in the European Young Masters in France.
A member of the England Under 18 Squad for 2009, Lloyd will join leading juniors from Argentina, Australia, Japan, Mexico and South Africa as well as the top American juniors in the sunshine of Texas.
