GOLF: Woodhall Spa star India earns dream trip to Canada


Woodhall Spa’s talented teenager golfer India Clyburn will head off to Canada later this month to represent England in the inaugural World Junior Championships.

India (17) will line up alongside Alice Hewson and Inci Mehmet in the event from 26 September to 1 October.

All three players were in the England team which won the 2014 Girls’ Home Internationals for the seventh successive year.

The 72-hole world championship will take place on the North and South courses at Angus Glen Golf Club in Markham, Ontario.

The club has hosted Canadian open championships on both the men’s PGA and LPGA Tours.

The event will be contested by 15 countries, selected by their performance at the 2012 World Amateur Team Championship.

There will be a team competition, with the best two scores counting in each round, and an individual event.

India’s call-up follows yet another international accolade.

She has been named as one of five new caps in the England team for the Ladies’ Home Internationals which take place at Aberdovey Golf Club, Wales, from September 17-19.

She will join established internationals like Sarah-Jane Boyd of Cornwall, Gabriella Cowley of Hertfordshire and Alex Peters of Nottinghamshire.

England were third in last year’s Home Internationals, having won the title for the previous two years.

Selection for the two England sides continues an outstanding year for India.

She is the English girls’ champion and had a perfect record in the Girls’ Home Internationals, winning all six of her matches.

She is also the Scottish junior stroke play champion and was runner-up in the Critchley Salver.
