Beck on Israel’s World Amateur Team

Highly touted freshman women’s golfer Laetitia Beck was named yesterday to the Israeli team in the World Amateur Team Championship. The tournament is scheduled to begin Oct. 16 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The 2009 Israel Lady and Junior Golfer, who is a native of Caesarea, Israel, and was a gold medalist at the 18th Maccabiah, will be joined on the team by Hadas Libman and Petra Bogoslavski. According to Duke Sports Information, this will be the first time ever that three golfers compete for Israel.

Beck finished tied for 37th in her first collegiate tournament, the NCAA Fall Preview, played last week. She improved each day of the tournament, firing a 78 on day one, then following it up with rounds of 72 and 71. Duke will miss her at the Landfall Tradition tournament, though, as it tees off at the same time as the World Amateur Team Championship in October.
