Inside Golf - - Clubs -

OF­TEN­TIMES young peo­ple are crit­i­cised for be­ing im­po­lite, rude, self­ish and ar­ro­gant.

Well, Queens­land young gun Cameron Smith, the Aus­tralian Stroke Play and Boys’ Ama­teur cham­pion, did his coun­try proud dur­ing a trip to the USA.

Smith (pic­tured) re­ceived high praise from mem­bers of the Hope Val­ley Coun­try Club in North Carolina where he qual­i­fied to play in the US Ju­nior Ama­teur Cham­pi­onship.

In fact, a mem­ber of the coun­try club was so im­pressed with Smith he wrote a letter to Golf Queens­land prais­ing the young man.

“He was so nice to our mem­bers and kids,” the mem­ber wrote.

“I would like to send him a stick (golf club) and golf ball out to Seat­tle to play with dur­ing his down time out there.”

The US Ju­nior Am­ate u r Cham­pi­onship is played at Gold Moun­tain Golf Club’s Olympic Course in Seat­tle.

“I have fam­ily and friends who are mem­bers at Me­rion Golf Club in Penn­syl­va­nia, site of the 2013 US Open.

“I would like to con­nect Cameron with a good fam­ily, who can cad­die for him for the week.

“It will be a big event as it will be the 100th an­niver­sary of Fran­cis Ouimet win­ning the US Open at age 19 – the same age Cameron will be.

“Me­rion Golf Club i s where Aus­tralian David Graham won the US Open in 1981.”
