Gaining selection to represent New Zealand in the Queen Sirikit Cup Team is yet another milestone to add to the golfing CV of Amelia Garvey. The golfing schedule is continuing to grow especially with more international travel for the 16 year old Canterbury representative. Garvey will make her New Zealand senior debut at the 39th edition of the Queen Sirikit Cup to be played in China from 10-12 May where she will be joined by teammates Alanna Campbell (BOP) and Rose Zheng (Auckland).
"This has been a big goal for me to make the New Zealand senior team, to be able to represent your country at such a big event will be an unreal experience" commented Garvey. "I can't wait to go to China, my aim will be to perform up to the standard that is needed for this world event".
It's exciting to see the doors that have opened for Amelia with considerable international exposure over the past 18 months for Amelia", says Canterbury Golf's Development Manager Rachel Thow. "Amelia has worked hard to develop her game and has a great team supporting her with her development."
"Having Amelia gain selection helps to provide a pathway for our other top development players to follow".
As this exciting news is released Garvey is preparing for her final round where she has a one shot lead in the Under 16 Girls field of the Faldo Asia Series Grand Final being played at the Laguna Lang Golf Club in Vietnam.
Travelling and supporting the new-look team will be New Zealand Golf’s National Coach Jay Carter.
The event scoring format records the best two stroke-play scores daily for each team, while an individual prize is also up for grabs. New Zealand has won the Queen Sirikit Cup on three occasions back in 1984, 1990 and the latest 1999.
