Golfer Lewis jets off for US scholarship thanks to college coaching

Lewis George is heading across the pond to tee up a golf scholarship in the USA after successfully completing a sports course at South Cheshire College.

The 18-year-old jetted off to the University of Central Arkansas last month to study kinesiology and drive forward his golfing talent at the same time.Lewis completed a sport development and fitness BTec level three extended diploma in June and said he was thrilled to be offered the “amazing opportunity”.

“Golf has always been a way of life for me,” he said. “I loved the sports diploma at college and I gained some coaching skills on the course which I’m hoping to use in the future.”

Now playing off a plus two handicap, Lewis first picked up a club when he was just six years old and lowered his handicap to five by the age of 12.

Since then he has won numerous club competitions and has represented England at under-16 level.
