YOUNG Crow Nest Park golfer Louie Walsh has earned the op­por­tu­nity to play in the IMG Academy Ju­nior World Cham­pi­onships in Cal­i­for­nia next sum­mer.

Walsh (above) won his age group sec­tion of the Bri­tish Ju­nior Golf Tour’s Qual­i­fy­ing tour­na­ment at Park Hill Golf Club in Lough­bor­ough.

The young­ster was in fan­tas­tic form on the main course at the Le­ices­ter­shire venue as he carded birdies on the sec­ond, third, fifth, ninth and 15th holes in a win­ning score of 74 in the boys 11-12 age group.

With over 200 golfers from across the coun­try bat­tling it out in re­gional qual­i­fiers at Wy­combe Heights, Lit­tle­stone and Bran­don Wood, the young­sters were hop­ing to book a place in an event, whose pre­vi­ous win­ners in­clude Tiger Woods and Phil Mick­el­son.

The top boy and girl in all the six age groups will now rep­re­sent Bri­tish Ju­nior Golf Tour in the pres­ti­gious com­pe­ti­tion, which fea­tures around 1,200 par­tic­i­pants from al­most 60 dif­fer­ent na­tions next July.
