Marley has captained the Essex teams from Under 12, through to Under 16, and in 2021 played for the U18 Essex Team, who came second in the National Finals held at Coxmoor Golf Club in Nottinghamshire.
He is one of eight lads chosen from Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and Bedfordshire to represent the England U18 Regional Team in competitions for the next two years.
Marley trains on a Saturday every 2/3 weeks with an England coach and has strength and conditioning training (via Zoom) regularly.
Around his golfing, he is also studying for a Diploma in Sport Excellence (DiSE) delivered by Loughborough University, with the aim of gaining the equivalent of two A Levels at grade C, more importantly, which will enhance his university application, possibly studying in the USA. Marley has recently had interviews with USA coaches, one in Nashville, Tennessee and one in Long Beach, California.
In March 2022, he will be sitting a SATs exam, alongside A Levels in PE, Business and Psychology.
The DRF are delighted to support Marley this year, and will be following his progress with keen interest.
