Staplehurst golfer Chloe Frankish's impressive progress continues with call-up to England Girls' squad

Self-taught golfer Chloe Frankish has been called up by England Girls.

Frankish, pictured, whose ambition is to be the best female golfer in the world, will train with the squad once a month.

The 13-year-old, from Staplehurst, has taken part in her first session and will meet up with the rest of the team in Swanley on Saturday.

There were a few anxious moments while she waited to find out whether she’d been selected, as mum Claire explained.

She said: "I heard about a girl who’d surprisingly missed out and it made me wonder.

"We were fearing the worst a bit, especially as Chloe’s letter didn’t arrive until three days later."

Chloe has just reduced her handicap from five to four, which is no mean feat at this time of year.

Claire added: "It gets tougher in the winter and your handicap tends to flatline, but she’s been practising every day."
