Earlier this term, our Year 12 students were invited, along with pupils from Madras College, to design a golf bag for Calloway, to be used by the players during the 150th Open in St Andrews next year. After rounds of judging, including by the winner of the 2021 Dunhill Championship, Danny Willett, the top design was announced, and we are thrilled to now be able to share the exciting news with the St Leonards community.
Congratulations to Iona Turner on coming up with the winning design! Iona is already working with the team at Callaway to take her ideas from the page to the pros. Inspired by St Andrews, Scotland and the game of golf, Iona’s design will be made into a limited edition golf bag specially for The 2022 Open. Iona, along with Lily Driscoll and Lixi Chen, both finalists in the competition, were joined for a presentation yesterday by Danny Campbell, Commercial Director, and Lisa Giove, Head of Partnerships, at St Andrews Links.
We look forward to sharing further updates on this fantastic achievement in the run-up to next summer’s 150th Open Championship!
