TOMI Bowen will represent his country at the World Amateur Team Championship 2023 in October.

The tournament will be held in Abu Dhabi from October 19-21 and will bring together the world’s best amateur golfers.

The 20-year-old from Llanfair Caereinion spoke of his pride after the Welsh Golf Union confirmed his place alongside Matt Roberts and James Ashfield.

“It is my biggest call up to date and I am really looking forward to getting out there and representing my country,” said Bowen.


Bowen learned his craft as a member of Welshpool Golf Club which he joined a decade ago and soon progressed through the national pathway.

Earlier this year the youngster smashed the course record during the Irish Amateur Open while also ending second at the Welsh Amateur Championships in Newport in July.

Bowen said: “I am setting myself no targets and I know it will be tough against the best amateur golfers in the world.

“The team have known each other for some time now and we are all looking forward to such a major tournament.”.

In this year's Home Internationals in Machynys he helped Wales to a rare victory over England, claiming a point in the singles beating Tyler Weaver of Bury St Edmunds.
