Young golfer to meet Queen during city visit
TEENAGE golf champion Harrison Greenberry was due to meet the Queen during her visit to Exeter.
The 17-year-old from Torquay is the British Boys Amateur Golf Champion and winner of the English Golf Union under 18 order of merit.
He was invited to meet the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh during their visit to the University of Exeter on Wednesday, May 2, as part of the jubilee celebrations.
Harrison said: "I have so much respect for the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh who somehow manage to complete so many engagements all over the world each year. I only hope that when I am their age, I am as sharp and able as they are.

"I feel very honoured to have been invited to the event and it is a day I will never forget."
Harrison is in his first year at Exeter College and plays golf at Exeter Golf and Country Club.
He was invited to the event after achievements last year which culminated in him being awarded the BBC Spotlight Young Sports Personality of The Year award.
Earlier in the year, Harrison was part of the victorious Great Britain and Ireland team who brought home the Jacques Leglise Trophy after comprehensively beating the Continent of Europe team.
A delighted Harrison said: "When I was invited to play in the Duke Of York Young Champions event last year, little did I know I would also be invited to be a guest on the Duke of York's table at the prize giving dinner. Now I have been invited to meet his parents and I am over the moon."
