The final award of the Rose Series has now been determined.
The prize, a £7,500 scholarship to support a player striving to get on to the LPGA Tour, is the concept and personal gift of Stephen Proctor, Chairman of Sports Marketing Surveys.
The award panel, comprising Ken Schofield, former CEO of the European Tour, Journalist Lewine Mair, and Stephen, offered the opportunity to Liz Young, who has accepted.
Liz, whose original initiative sparked the interest and support of Justin and Kate Rose, was by a considerable margin the best non LPGA performer across the series.
She has the whole hearted support of her family, the ambition to succeed, and the confidence that with better resources she can achieve her objective.
Announcing the award Stephen said:
“We are delighted that Liz has accepted our offer of support. It is thoroughly deserved on the basis of her play, and happily also acknowledges her initiative without which so many aspiring players would have had no competitive play.
Liz will be a great ambassador for the game, and Sports Marketing Surveys are proud to support her.”
When informed of the selection, Kate Rose described it as “a fantastic choice. I am so thrilled for Liz, and fully supportive.”
On accepting the award, Liz said:
“When Stephen offered me the award, I felt extremely honoured that the award panel had chosen me. The Rose Ladies Series has been an amazing journey and I am so grateful for the support from Stephen and Sports Marketing Surveys, which will help me reach my full potential.”
