Media Release: Young golfers hit the old links

THE future of golf will meet its historic past when the best young golfers on the planet descend on Scotland in May for the prestigious US Kids Golf European Championships.
Teen golfers, Calum Hill and Lara Frostwick, will be among more than 400 youngsters from around 30 nations taking part on some of the world’s oldest courses in the country where the game was invented.
And to celebrate the return of the tournament to Scotland and the contrast between the young golfers and the historic links, 13 year-old Hill got dressed in full 19th century golf gear complete with hickory equipment to play against 14 year-old Frostwick with the latest US Kids Golf clothing and equipment.
Following its inaugural outing last year, the US Kids Golf Championship has emerged as Europe’s premier junior tournament and the place where the stars of the future take their first steps in international competition.
The event will be held across five of Scotland’s historic golf courses in East Lothian and will see boys and girls split into different gender and age categories in order to compete for the title of US Kids Golf European champion.
