Paige Kemp (Essex, England) and Eilidh Watson (Dollar, Scotland) have signed National Letters-of-Intent to play golf and continue their education at Stetson, women’s golf head coach Floyd Kerr announced today.

Kemp and Watson are two of the top prep golfers in Great Britain, and both have significant international experience and success.

"Our 2013-14 team has five seniors who have played extensively throughout their careers,” said Kerr. “That is a staggering number considering only five players compete in tournaments. Fortunately we have two outstanding freshmen players this year, however, that still leaves a few large gaps for next year.

“After a long recruiting process we have identified and signed two incoming freshmen for 2014 that will make huge contributions in filling those gaps. We are thrilled to welcome Eilidh Watson and Paige Kemp. Both of these future Hatters have a wealth of playing experience on local and national levels.”

An accomplished all-round athlete who has participated in multiple sports in high school, Kemp was captain of the Essex girls’ team in 2012, eventually leading the squad to capture the English National Championship.

Individually, Kemp also finished as runner-up at both the East of England Ladies Championships and U18s Scottish Girls Invitational. Kemp set a course record at the East Herts Golf Club while playing in the East of England U18s. She was sixth at the Scottish Ladies U21 Open.

Kemp chose Stetson over Central Arkansas, McNeese State, Missouri State and Oral Roberts.

“Paige has a powerful swing yet also has a deft touch around the greens which is a great scoring combination,” said Kerr.

Watson has enjoyed an outstanding amateur career as well. She won the Junior Centenary trophy four straight years, while also playing first foursomes and second singles for the Perth and Kinross Ladies County team. Additionally, she reached the quarterfinals of the U23 Match Play Championship, losing on the final hole.

Watson chose Stetson over Campbell, Charleston Southern and Garder-Webb

“Eilidh is currently ranked as one of the top junior players in Scotland and has won several tournaments,” said Kerr. “She can post low numbers and has a 68 as her low competitive round.”
