THERE are four fresh faces in the 2021 Golf NSW high-performance program, including Mollymook Golf Club products Kelsey Bennett and Jye Halls.
Joining Bennett, who will re-enter the program after a 12-month break, and first-timer Halls are Jeffrey Guan of the Australian GC and Muswellbrook's Josh Fuller (The Vintage Golf Club).
Bennett, who is part of the St Michaels Golf Club, re-enters the program with a renewed passion for the sport and several impressive results to her name this year, including a victory in the 2021 Women's Tasmanian Open.
NSW Golf Club's Halls, at just 16, will become one of the youngest members in the squad after a string of impressive performances, including a victory in the 2020 Junior Sixes and a creditable fourth place at the Australian Junior.
Guan needs little introduction to many in the sport.
Runner-up at the recent Australian Amateur, the 16-year-old added the Australian Junior title to his name with victory at Gold Creek Country Club only three weeks ago.
Fuller, who plays at the Vintage in the Hunter Valley, impressed many during the NSW Amateur Championship back in January before claiming the world-ranked Concord Cup and Tasmanian Open Championships in March.
Golf NSW high-performance manager Khan Pullen was thrilled to announce the new members of the squad.
"All of the athletes have been performing well at the state, and national level, and I am looking forward to working with them and their support teams," Pullen said.
"With access to the resources available through the Golf NSW high-performance program, I am confident they will continue to develop the skills required to take their game to the next level."
Joining that quartet in the squad for 2021 are Jordan Garner, Harrison Crowe, Chris Fan, Jye Pickin, Grace Kim, Belinda Ji, Sophie Yip and June Song.
