Gholf-sensasie mik na grote

Hy sal teen die wêreld se beste jong spelers te staan kom

24 February 2014

    

DIE jong gholf-sensasie van Kemptonpark, La-Velle “BaBa” Clark-Halket, sal in Julie by die Pine Hurst Golf Resort, North Carolina, VSA, aan die US Kids Major World Championships deelneem.

Sy spel en tweede plek by die wêreldkampioenskappe in Maleisië laasjaar het hom vir die US Major Kids World Championships laat kwalifiseer, waar hy teen die wêreld se beste jong spelers te staan sal kom.

“BaBa” het ook vir die Skotland-toer einde Mei gekwalifiseer, maar hy sal nie deelneem nie omdat die US Major Championship die grote is waarvoor hy jag.

Sover die jaar op die SA Kids-toer sit BaBa tweede op die ranglys. Hy het die eerste toernooi van die nuwe seisoen by Benoni Buiteklub gewen en was tweede by Waterkloof en derde by die onlangse toernooi op Glen Vista.

Young golfer (7) practises for world qualifier -La-Velle Clark-Halket – Living Waters Driving Range

He wants to compete against the world’s best

01 November 2012 | Annalie Anticevich

    

Young golfer (7) practises for world qualifierLA-VELLE Clark-Halket (7) is training hard for the world golf qualifier after failing to qualify for the European qualifier.

Clark-Halket recently started training with a new coach, Eben Uys, who is based at Living Waters Driving Range in Glen Marais.

La-Velle competed at the European qualifier on October 27 and 28 at Bronkhorstspruit Country Club. Although not qualifying, he still had among the best scores which qualified him to go to Scotland for three days to compete with the best in his age group in Scotland.

To qualify, the minimum required score over the two days was 92.
Dad Leslie said the weather on the first day did not really allow for a good round of golf, but La-Velle shot a 52.

“It was definitely also one of the most difficult courses we have played this year. Given the 52 on the first day, he had to shoot a 40 the next day to get his score of 92.

“With Eben’s expertise he lead La-Velle to a magnificent 42, which did not qualify him for the European tour, but he came in at fourth place with a score of 94, missing the requirement with two strokes.”

There are four tournaments left for the year, as the last one will be the world qualifier in December, for which Clark-Halket is training hard.

“He will not let a two-stroke shortfall in the European qualifier dampen his focus and concentration going forward,” his dad said.
