ATLANTAGeorgia State women’s golf coach Cathy Mant announced the signing of highly-touted junior golfer Chloe Howard from Plymouth, England on Thursday to join the Panthers for the 2017-18 season.

Howard, who plays to a +2 handicap, has represented the English Girls U16 team twice and will join a long line of English golfers to play at Georgia State.

“We are excited to welcome Chloe to the Georgia State family,” head coach Cathy Mant said. “Chloe has shown that she can excel at the highest levels. She has a very solid all-around game that she has used to win many tournaments as a junior golfer.”

Howard was the Devon County Junior Champion in 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2016, while also winning the Devon County Ladies Amateur Championship in 2013 and 2015.

She was the British Universities Exeter Invitational Champion in 2014 and the Devon Schools Champion in 2014 and 2016.

She also won the South West U18 Girls Championship in 2015. That same year, she qualified for the Daily Telegraph Junior World Championship in Portugal, finishing third.

Howard becomes the second signee to join Georgia State this year. Petra Duran of Spain signed on to the program in November.

Georgia State will open the Sun Belt Conference Championship on Monday looking to win a sixth conference championship in program history. The three-day event is taking place at the RTJ-Fighting Joe Course in Muscle Shoals, Ala.
