Golfing superstar Shamiso Hatchard has been named as a Finalist in the Young Achiever of the Year category as part of the Pride of Milton Keynes Awards this month (October). Shamiso attended a star studded event (Friday 3rd October), hosted by Bobby Davro, to find out if she would take home the gong. With extremely stiff competition in what was a very varied category, the crown was awarded to a young man who had overcome a potentially fatal illness twice (!!) for his on-going fundraising efforts in the hope of raising awareness of the condition he had faced.
A natural born talent with a handicap of just 4, Shamiso is highly regarded by peers, professionals, coaches and supporters as being one of the most promising female golfers, and only recently has scored a host of new successes including; Winner of the Midlands South Under 18 championship involving the top female players from 6 counties. Securing a handicap of (USGA) 0 (member of the Jumeirah Golf Estates, Dubai, United Arab Emirates)and (CONGU) 3 (member of Woburn Golf Club, UK). Being a member of the England Golf Under 18 squad as well as the Buckinghamshire county ladies 1st team (winners of Midland South region inter-county championship 2014). Awarded the Buckinghamshire ladies 1st team County Colours . Crowned Buckinghamshire’s County Junior champion 2014 and being a member of the Bucks County Junior team that is defending shortly the Midlands South title they won in 2013. John O’Gaunt ladies club champion 2014 and finally celebrating an incredible hole in 1 on 290 yard par 4, 3rd hole on the Carthegena course, John O’Gaunt GC, August 2014. (For all non-golfers, this is known as an albatross: and is a very rare achievement indeed!)
There is no rest for the sporting queen and Shamiso continues to have many sporting accomplishments in her sights!
