US Kids Golf Players

Sparkling golf matched the sunshine conditions as the cream of the world’s young golfing talent dazzled in the prestigious U.S. Kids Golf European Championship.

Competitors from no less than eight different countries – including the small central American nation of Guatemala – scooped European Championship titles, reflecting both the growth and spread of junior golf throughout the world.

Best round of the tournament was the last round, seven under par 65 carded by Philipp Matlari from Germany in the boys 12 age group while Liverpool’s Eloise Healey, Samantha Fuller from Kingston-upon-Thames and Monet Flores (Guatemala) each won their third European title in a row.  Frank Olav Garber (USA) also retained his European Championship crown.

But the highlight of the championships was the three holes-in-one scored by Kristjan Vojteh Berkelca, Lucy Walton and Lewis Reid over three different courses.

The competition – played over Gullane No. 2, Gullane No. 3, Craigielaw Golf Club and Longniddry Golf Club – was organised by the U.S. Kids Golf Foundation, which aims to promote the game of golf to young players and their families around the world.

The U.S. Kids Golf European Championship returns to Scotland

The UK’s biggest golfing tournament is set to be staged in Scotland this summer – and it isn’t the Open Championship.

Although all eyes will turn to St Andrews this July to watch the professionals do battle on the famous links, almost 500 players will be descending on the UK the month before  to compete in an equally prestigious championship.

The U.S. Kids Golf European Championship, being staged from June 1-3, will see many of the best golfers from around the world travel to East Lothian for a three-day competition across four historic golf courses.

The event, now in its third year, will be the largest single-field tournament in the UK during 2010, with a roster of competitors almost four times bigger than the Open Championship.
