Talented England quartet target European Young Masters
Four talented players will head to Switzerland next week to represent England in the European Young Masters.
Sammy Fuller of Surrey, Hollie Muse of Lancashire, Toby Briggs of Norfolk (Image © Leaderboard Photography) and Charlie Strickland of Sussex will tee up in the 54-hole event at Golf Club Domaine Imperial from July 23-25.
England’s most successful year was in 2013, when Bradley Moore (Kedleston Park) won the boys’ title and also led the mixed team to victory.
This will be the second time both Fuller and Muse have played in the championship and they will seek England’s first win in the girls’ event. Both players have just represented England in the European girls’ team championship.
The players
Sammy Fuller, 16, (Roehampton) returned from injury this season to tie for the Irish U18 stroke play, but lost a title play-off. She has just finished 16th in the English women's amateur at Hunstanton where she scored six-under 66 in the first round. She has represented England in the girls’ Home Internationals and GB&I in the junior Vagliano.
Hollie Muse, 15, (West Lancashire) helped England beat Spain in the 2015 mixed international and this season has won the Scottish U16 championship and The Leveret and was third in the St Rule Trophy. She was in the winning teams at last year’s girls’ and women’s Home Internationals.
Toby Briggs, 15, (Dunston Hall) was runner-up at the Fairhaven Trophies and helped England to win the Nations Cup. He was also in the teams which came second at the German boys’ open and third at the Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters. He was unbeaten in the recent U16 international against Spain.
Charlie Strickland, 16, (Ham Manor) was third in the South Eastern junior championship, fifth in the Peter McEvoy Trophy and sixth in the 2014 Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters. He also played in this year’s U16 international against Spain, winning both his matches on the second day.
Briggs and Strickland were yesterday involved in a three-way tie at the McGregor Trophy, the English U16 boys' open strokeplay at Wallasey, but were beaten in a play-off by Ignacio Puente of Spain who birdied the first extra hole. They were both members of the England team which won the Nations Cup at the championship.
