The New Zealand golfers Emily Perry, Sarah Bradley and Joshua Munn have been named as the three winners of the Michael Campbell Foundation Scholarship in 2012.

They will travel to meet with the New Zealand Golf Hall of Fame member in Europe and work alongside him over two days to discover what is required to become successful professionals on the world stage.

Perry, the 21-year-old from the Lochiel Golf Club, recently won the New Zealand Stroke Play, defeating Lydia Ko in a playoff, and the North Island Stroke Play at her home club.

Bradley, the 22-year-old from Cambridge, made the semi-finals of New Zealand Amateur and is returning to elite level amateur golf in NZ after playing on a golf scholarship at Oklahoma State University.

Munn, the 21-year-old from Manawatu, made headlines in 2011 when he became only the fourth amateur to win on the Charles Tour when he claimed the Muriwai Open by one shot from Hamish Roberston.
