5 Minutes with: Annabel DimmockMay, 2014 The Scoop
We talk to Annabel Dimmock, winner of the Helen Holm championship and the Sunningdale Foursomes
“This is my first year playing golf full time and I’m playing a lot of tournaments. I’m going in without too much expectation and just looking to build my confidence.
“I’m 100 per cent not going to go to college. It suits a lot of people but it doesn’t really appeal to me. The hot weather and playing in the sunshine is honestly so appealing, but I’ve got my coach at home, I’m a member of a really nice course and I’ve got a lot of good friends who I play with at home.
There are so many girls in the England team and it’s neck-and-neck to get in “It would be so exciting if I got into the Curtis Cup team, especially as it’s in America. I play better when people are around me and I’m in front of crowds. I love playing in America and the courses out there suit my game.
“There are so many girls in the England team and it’s neck-and-neck to get in. The competition has pushed us all on.
“I play at Wentworth, which is lovely! Sometimes it’s such a slog around the West Course off the whites, but when you get to competitions you feel so much more confident about everything because you’ve been practising on a tougher course.
“I make my practice harder than my playing. I think that’s good for me and since I’ve been full time it has really helped.
“I would rather turn pro sooner than later, I don’t want to leave it too long.”
