6yr old at WORLD GOLF EVENT… Start ‘em young!

17 May 2013

I know they say everyone is doing things younger these days but this story really did grab our attention… Unbelievable!

A six-year-old boy who only started playing golf 15 months ago… yes, that’s SIX YEARS OLD,  has only gone and qualified for the Junior World Golf Championships. What?! Amazing.

Alfie Burnett, who hails from Rossendale, Lancashire in the UK, found out this week he has been chosen as a member of Team GB who will be competing in in this illustrious event in San Diego, USA in July.

His parents don’t play the game but he was encouraged to pick up a club at a family barbecue by an uncle. Best uncle in the world? Probably.

The youngster clearly found his forte with the game and after just a few golf lessons it was clear he had talent. He has progressed rapidly over the past year or so resulting in being one of the best young golfers to come out of England.

Alfie will compete in the six and under age group. We’ll certainly be keeping an eye on this little fella as he’s definitely going places… Starting with the USA!
