Farnham golfer Lottie Woad has been selected for the England Golf team competing in October’s World Amateur Team Championships at Abu Dhabi Golf Club’s National Course in the United Arab Emirates.
Woad is named in the three-woman team challenging for the Espirito Santo Trophy, alongside Charlotte Heath and Caley McGinty – with all three having helped England Women pick up a silver medal at the European Team Championship in Finland in July.
Woad helped Europe win the Patsy Hankins Trophy in Spain earlier this summer and was also part of the England team which won the Home Internationals in August.
The 19-year-old has enjoyed a number of top-ten finishes in the past 18 months, including second place at the South American Amateur Open and winning the Florida State Match Up. Woad also won her third US College title last week in the ANNIKA Invitational.
The women will tackle the National Course at Abu Dhabi from October 25 to October 28.
Jack Bigham, Barclay Brown and Tyler Weaver are in the men’s team. The male trio will compete for the Eisenhower Trophy from October 18 to October 21.
The biennial tournaments last took place in 2022 in France, with Italy winning the Eisenhower Trophy and Sweden winning the Espirito Santo Trophy.
England have won the Eisenhower Trophy four times as Great Britain & Ireland, with the last triumph coming back in 1998, while England have never won the Espirito Santo Trophy, with runners-up finishes as Great Britain & Ireland in 1974 and 1992.
In the Eisenhower Trophy and the Espirito Santo Trophy, each team member will play 18 holes of stroke play on each day of the competition. A total of the two lowest scores from each team will count towards the team’s score each day.
