Kiran Matharu


Haven't heard of Kiran Matharu? Don't worry. You'll be hearing plenty about her soon enough.

Kiran is the next great player to emerge from Great Britain. Still just 17, she'll be playing in the Ladies European Tour Q-School coming up. Stupidly, LPGA commissioner Carolyn Bivens rejected Matharu's request to play the LPGA's qualifying tournament.

Matharu, a protege of Nick Faldo, played on the GB&I Curtis Cup team this year, recently won the Ladies English Amateur Championship, and has placed highly in her few appearances at professional events.
