MANCHESTER’S Louisa Brunt has linked up with Texas Tech women’s golf coach JoJo Robertson after being invited to join the US college golf season.
The England international, who plays at Royal Birkdale, will add depth to a Lady Raider program that ranks among the top-35 teams nationally despite not boasting a single senior on its roster.
Louisa has been playing in the Harder Hall Women’s Invitational tournament at Sebring in Florida.
Robertson said: “We are very excited to welcome Louisa into our program and look forward to having her join us next fall.
“Not only is she a great player who will bring a ton of experience but she will be a great team-mate and add so much to our team. We are so proud that she is a Red Raider.”
Louisa is one of the top overseas players in the 2017 class as she stands in the top 100 of the European rankings. She has played in several of the top international tournaments, highlighted by her selection to represent England in the European Girls Team Championships.
She represented England in the 2014 Scottish Under-16 Girls’ Championships as well as the U-16 match against Switzerland. She tied for ninth last year in the English Women’s Open and 13th in the English Girls’ Open Amateur Championships.
Louisa is the lone signee for the Lady Raiders. They resume their 2016-17 slate this month for the Lady Puerto Rico Classic.
