Ulster kids get opportunity to follow superstars

By Frank Brownlow

Ulster's rising stars have been handed the opportunity to follow in the illustrious footsteps of the likes of Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell by playing at St Andrews, the home of golf.

Wee Wonders, one of the UK and Ireland's longest established junior tournaments, is coming to The Blackwood in Bangor for a regional qualifying event on Wednesday, July 30.

The competition is open to juniors aged 5-12 years and offers regional winners the opportunity to play at St Andrews, which regularly stages the Open, currently taking place at Royal Liverpool.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for the youngest golfers," says The Blackwood's professional Debbie Hanna.

Wee Wonders Open Golf Championships was founded in 1995. It provides an opportunity for entry into competitive golf both for children new to the game and for the most experienced young players.

Regional qualifiers all over the UK and Ireland lead to the Grand Final at St Andrews in August.
