Students to play match against Norway

While many UK golfers will be huddled around the fireplace, the Lee Westwood Golf School students will be competing against the WANG Academy of Norway. The event will be held on the 12 January during their winter training trip to the Iberostar Royal Andalus Golf Resort, in sunny Spain.

The Wang Academy operates in a similar fashion to the Lee Westwood Golf School, in that it is for talented young norwegian athletes aged from 16 to 19 years old, who complete education while training in their chosen sport. There are five schools in Norway (Oslo, Hamar, Stavanger, Tønsberg and Fredrikstad).

It will be a tough match against the WANG Academy, who work closely with the Norwegian Golf Federation, with the handicap range of players being +3.5 to 5, and includes up to 15 Norwegian international representatives. Programme Manager Gavin Hamlyn said 'it is a fantastic opportunity for out students to train and compete abroad. We are all looking forward to highly competitive matches, and the unique prospect of playing against a school from a foreign country".

During the trip there will also be the annual match played between the Lee Westwood Golf School - Cheshire and Essex teams. This match is normally played with much intensity due to the desire to bring back the inter-school bragging rights to the UK. The Essex School currently hold the title but it's all to play for again in just over a months time.
