Immy tees up for success

At just 14 years old, Immy Williamson (3LES), a member of Delamere Forest and Royal Liverpool GC, has been enjoying success on the local and national golf scenes for a while and she is showing no signs of slowing down in 2021.  

She started this year’s golfing schedule on a high, finishing runner-up to Curtis Cup squad member Isobel Wardle in the Cheshire Ladies Championship, a result that has cemented her place in the County Ladies A Team.

Immy added another trophy to her cabinet last weekend when she secured her second consecutive Cheshire U18 Girls Championship at Prestbury Golf Club, a title she won in 2019 at the age of 12. In winds of up to 40mph, Immy was the only player to break 80, managing to birdie the last for a five over 79.

This impressive win comes at the beginning of a busy year. Immy is a member of the England U18 Regional Development Squad and is currently preparing for a landmark tournament –  the English Under 18 Championship – which will see boys and girls tee up alongside each other to compete for the one trophy at Farnham Golf Club in Surrey. This will be followed by the England Girls U18 Championship at Malton and Norton GC and the England Girls U14/U16 Championship at Morecombe GC.

Immy’s Dad, John Williamson, thanked the school for their support: “We are delighted with the support we get from King’s in allowing Immy to play in these events which are so important for her golfing development and CV.”

As for Immy, her main focus is always on her next tournament but she’s excited about what the future holds: “When I leave King’s, I hope to earn a golfing scholarship in the US and tee it up professionally on the LPGA tour.”
