Support Emily's American golf trip
She has now qualified for the Australian team to compete in two tournaments in America - the World Stars of Junior Golf in Las Vegas and the West Coast Junior Olympics in Los Angeles. Both of these events take place during July 2016.
Whilst it's a great honour to be selected to play in an Australian team, we get no assistance with the costs associated with the trip, therefore all flights, accommodation etc. must be covered by us. This is a very unexpected trip, something that we just hadn't even considered, so unfortunately we are struggling to find the funds to get Emily there.
This could be a once in a lifetime opportunity for Emily to participate in tournaments such as this, so we are determined to ensure she is able to take advantage of what she has achieved.
As a family we would be so grateful for any assistance received to help Emily compete in America as we have no doubt she would be a great representative for Australia and get an awful lot out of this amazing opportunity.
She is the 12 year age division gold medalist, AND she also is the overall winner of the 11-12 year age division in the AAU West Coast Junior Olympic Games!!!! AND she came 6th overall out of all the girls of EVERY age division. She has grown so much over the last 2 weeks and made some wonderful new friends. This experience has been priceless for her and we'd like to thank everyone who has supported Emily whether it be by your great words of encouragement or by donations. You are all awesome!
It was a tough day with a slightly later start meaning the heat was worse, but Emily battled on and managed to hit her best ever score of 83!!! She came =13th for today's round and finished 19th overall! We are super proud of her. She has grown so much these last few days. This tournament has been a great experience for her. Time to relax now before the presentation tonight.
Thank you so much to everyone for your support. A few days off now before the West Coast Junior Olympics begins!
