Aust­wick gets all set for South Africa Chal­lenge

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - RUGBY LEAGUE - CHRIS STRAT­FORD

FUL­FORD’S Char­lotte Aust­wick left for South Africa yes­ter­day where she will be part of a North­ern Hemi­sphere team that takes on their South­ern coun­ter­parts in the The Global Chal­lenge at Her­manus.

Aust­wick, who was un­beaten five years ago as she helped York­shire claim the English county ti­tle, hopes the event will prove ideal prep­ping ahead of her sit­ting the Ladies Eu­ro­pean Tour’s qual­i­fy­ing school test in Morocco next month.

She swaps the shrink­ing, cold days of an English au­tumn for the sunshine of the Cape South coast for a week of friendly yet com­pet­i­tive golf in a match de­signed to raise funds for the Bang The Drum char­ity cam­paign. Aust­wick’s name was put for­ward for con­sid­er­a­tion by the Global Chal­lenge’s or­gan­is­ers who were de­lighted to in­clude the for­mer Sun­ning­dale Four­somes win­ner.

Af­ter a chal­leng­ing 2017 that saw her un­dergo surgery for a bad an­kle in­jury and later have her ap­pen­dix re­moved, Aust­wick is glad 2018 is draw­ing to a close on a much more pos­i­tive note.

She had been con­sid­er­ing us­ing an event in Spain to sharpen up her game for Q School, but in­stead will com­pete in the Ry­der Cup-style Global Chal­lenge.

CHAR­LOTTE AUST­WICK: Plans to rest up to­day af­ter the long trip to South Africa.
