Young star gets Welsh call

A YOUNG golfer at Rydal Penrhos School has received another national squad selection for an upcoming competition.

Reuben Bather, a Year nine pupil at the Colwyn Bay school, will be part of the Wales U16 side that will compete at the Quadrangular event, which will be held at Prestatyn Golf Club from April 11-13.

The 13-year-old booked his place in the squad with a strong showing at a recent selection weekend at Newport Golf Club, and he hopes to make a significant contribution to the Welsh team that will take on Holland, Scotland and Ireland during the event.

After a day of practice on April 10, the tournament will consist of three mornings of foursome play, with the Rydal Penrhos Golf Academy star looking to pick up valuable points each afternoon during singles clashes.

Director of sport Allen Boyd, said: “This is a fantastic achievement from Reuben and one made even more remarkable given that he is just 13-years-of-age.

“He is an extremely gifted golfer who has made great strides with his game thanks to the hard work he is putting in with our dedicated strength and conditioning team here at Rydal Penrhos, which has added significant distance to his drives.

“Representing Wales again will be another fantastic experience for him and we wish Reuben and the squad well in what is sure to be a fantastic competition.”
