International success should be in the bag for sponsors of this ambitious young lady golf professional
Tour Sponsorship is sought for a female golf professional.
"I am taking it upon myself to seek a sponsor(s) for a twenty-five year old talented female golfer from my club in the north west of England.
"She turned professional in June 2013 and plays on the Ladies European Access Tour. At present she is self-funding. This seriously restricts the tour events she can play and precludes the necessary professional coaching and practice to maintain her high standards of play.
"I am looking to raise £25,000 per full season, currently fourteen tournaments. Sponsorship would relieve the huge financial burden and emotional pressures she presently faces.
"Some achievements: in 2005, at age 16, she achieved a top five finish at the prestigious Formby Leveret Scratch Event, shooting 71, 76.
"She has also represented Lancashire at Junior and Senior level. She was winner of the North West England and Wales Faldo Series, going on to play the final at Celtic Manor, where she finished third in the girls' section, with Rory McIlroy winning the boys.
"In 2009, as International Golf Scholar at the University of Stirling, she won the 2nd flight of the Women's Matchplay Championship at Coral Ridge in Florida, after losing the 1st flight to the current world No. 8.
"She took two years out to study and complete a Masters of Performance Analysis in Sport.
"She received an invite from the Tour Director to play in her first ladies European Access Tour event at Dinard (France).
"In November 2013, she attained second place in the Costa Blanca Ladies Open. She was the only player that week to shoot an under par score, in difficult conditions. She finished only two shots behind the winner who went on to lead at the Dubai Ladies Masters.
"Deserving of a benefactor, this sponsorship is crucial to achieving her ambition. Sponsorship for this talented female golfer would be so beneficial. Not only will you be helping someone achieve their ambition, but followers and associates of golf will perceive you as an important supportive influence in her achievements.
"On a personal note, had she not been hindered by self-funding restrictions, her tour accomplishments would have been far greater than at present.
"I hope a sponsor is forthcoming to give this talented female the opportunity to follow her dream. She will be most grateful.
"Thank you for reading my sponsorship request. Contact myself in the first instance via email or text (sorry, I am deaf). I shall then inform her of your interest and she will contact interested parties directly".
Aims for 2014
Her European tour venues this year are numerous: Sweden, Norway, Finland and Portugal; fourteen in total; all dependent on finances available.
