  I play golf for Wales
Updated 23 August 2002, 17.30
Breanne sees her name on the score board
Breanne Loucks is a top amateur golfer, and is ranked the second best girls player in Wales.

She's won loads of competitions, and hopes to play professionally one day.

This week she came third in the Golf Foundation Weetabix Age Group Championship 2002 Grand Final.


"I started playing golf four years ago. I liked watching it on TV, and would also watch my Dad play. Then I joined a club and it went from there.

I now play in major tournaments around Britain - I also went to Italy this year to play for Wales in European Girls' Championships.

Why I like golf

I like the way you can get better, I like learning more about it, improving my game, meeting new people and having a good time.

It's a very competitive sport and I like to do well. I especially like representing my country.

In the summer I play nearly every day, but in the winter I practise more than play.

Sometimes I have to take a lot of time off school to play but I have to catch up on school work I miss.

I usually decide at the beginning of the year which tournaments I'll play in and how much time I'll need off school.

More girls in golf

A lot more girls play golf now - but still many more boys playing than girls.

My best shot is my drive - I'm quite strong.

I don't mind playing in all sorts of weather as long as I'm dry. If it's raining heavily then they'll stop play.

Anyone wishing to start playing golf, I would advise they join a club, practise hard and get a coach to help you really improve.

I'd like to turn professional one day, and I'd love to win a scholarship to a university on my golfing skills."

Breanne, 14, Wrexham
