Algarve win for youngster
WEST Byfleet GC’s John Keane capped a glorious summer with victory in the Oceanic World Kids Golf tournament at the Faldo Course in Alcantarilha in the Algarve.
In the under-14s category, John beat 27 rivals in the three-day event with gross scores of 70, 71 and 76 to clinch a four-shot triumph.
“We’d booked flights home for the last day,” explained dad Steve Keane. “If he hadn’t been in with a chance of winning, he’d have come with us, but we made the right choice to rebook him.”
