Golfing star honours kids

Have your say

YOUNG golfers who entered an event organised by three South Yorkshire golf clubs are meeting one of the sport’s top names at a presentation tonight.

Danny Willett, who has competed in European and US tournaments, is making his way to Phoenix Golf Club, Rotherham, where he will meet the children who took part, who are aged five to 12. He will present their medals.

The tournament was set up by representatives of Phoenix, Sitwell and Bondhay Golf Clubs to encourage youngsters to make the transition from ‘pre-junior’ golf on small, academy courses to experience playing on full-sized golf courses.

Danny Willett agreed to be the patron of the event, which took place last summer and was named the Wee Willetts contest.
