7:27 am on 27 May 2009

New Zealand Golf has announced Auckland's Larissa Eruera, Masterton's Ben Campbell and Wellington's Peter Spearman-Burn are the recipients of the 2009 Michael Campbell Foundation scholarships.

The promising amateurs will receive hands-on tuition, guidance and mentoring from Campbell and his coach, Jonathan Yarwood.

They'll travel to Yarwood's Academy base in England for a week in August.

Spearman-Burn, 19, is the current North Island and South Island Amateur champion.

Campbell beat Danny Lee in last year's New Zealand Under-23 Championship final and Eurera, who's also 17, was the 2006 New Zealand Amateur champion.
