Young Tyrese Danso from Enfield Golf Club recently played in the 2017 US Kids Venice Open hosted at Golf Club Della Montecchia on 18th - 19th August.
The talented youngster competed in the 9 Years of age category and shot a solid 74 (2 over par) opening 1st round which left him in 5th place.
Tyrese turned up the heat in the 2nd Round as it was a real battle for the top places between him and other extremely talented golfers from around the world. Ty went toe to toe, hole by hole with a dazzling display of outstanding golf with his playing partner from the Netherlands, who was already 1 shot ahead of Ty going into the round. As Tyrese stepped on to the 17th Tee (Par 3) 114 yards, he hit his shot approximately 1 yard to the left of the flag, 5 yards shy of the pin, it started to take a gentle B-line for the hole and eventually dropped in for an amazing hole in one!
Tyrese shot a fantastic 5 under par round which propelled him into T-2 place with the young lad from the Netherlands. This top finish has now qualified Tyrese for the 2018 US Kids World Championship in America, Pinehurst.
Just one day later, upon Tyrese’s return to the UK, he took part in the Middlesex U14/U13 Championship 2017 hosted at Strawberry Hill Golf Club. Ty managed to obtain a Nett Runners Up trophy, an amazing achievement from the 9 year old.
