Ex Student Wins Major Tournament
English golfer Nathan Kimsey has won the very prestigous Terra Cotta Invitational 2013 championship in the USA.
Nathan is now 27th in the World Amateur Golf Rankings and 8th in Europe. This win will count for a lot with GB&I Walker Cup selectors, as Nathan has proven that he can compete in the USA against the best, compete and win in the USA.
This year has started brilliantly for Nathan – he was sent to Australia with 3 other Elite Squad members by England Golf and was there from 1st January until mid-February, playing in a number of prestigious tournaments. Nathan stood out and in the last 3 competitions, he finished 2nd in all of them!
He played for England in the team event, the European Nations Cup in Spain in March and helped the team to win that and now he has won the Terra Cotta. He will be travelling to Spain, again, next week to represent England in a team event v Spain and he has worked out that since the new year he will have only spent 27 days in the UK up to the end of this month!!
We wish Nathan all the very best in his Walker Cup selection endeavours and I guess he just needs to continue to put in consistent performances in the big amateur events.
