Young golf talent jets off to play in U.S.

JUNIOR golf star Christian Butterworth flew out to the US this week to compete at the Future Champions Golf Championship at La Quinta Golf Course in Palm Springs, California.

The 12-year-old, from the Peregian Springs Golf Club, has put in many impressive performances throughout the year, including an under-14 runner-up finish last week at the Bargara Classic, with consecutive rounds of 81, 76 and 76.

Golf club members raised $5000 to support Christian's trip to the US.

The club's Junior Golf Program is yielding some excellent junior players, including 11-year-old Cassie Porter, who also excelled at the Bargara Classic. Cassie successfully defended her 2013 title by winning The Invincibles Tour 2014 Course Cup with consecutive rounds of 87, 85 and 88. Last Sunday, Cassie continued her good form and won the net event at the Mt Coolum Junior Open, with a gross score of 84.
