Justin Rose and Charley Hull have agreed to become England Golf Ambassadors to champion the work of the organisation. Rose, the 2013 US Open champion, and Hull, the youngest-ever Solheim Cup player, both represented England as amateurs before embarking on their stellar professional careers.
Raising Our Game sets out a vision of England Golf at the heart of a network of partners, working together to tackle the challenges facing the game and create an even brighter future for golf. The strategy’s aims include increasing the number of regular golfers, creating stronger clubs and improving the image of golf.
David Joy, chief executive of England Golf commented, “We are delighted to welcome Justin and Charley as our Ambassadors and look forward to working with them. Their support will be invaluable as part of our strategy to inspire new golfers and spread the message that golf is a game for all. We are aware, like many other sports, golf faces challenges around declining participation. We now better understand these issues and are committed to delivering our strategy – Raising Our Game – halting the decline in participation and membership and bringing growth back to golf in England.”
