Narellan Vale golfer swings top award

A t just 11 years old Joel Tyson is on his way to becoming golf’s next superstar.

The Narellan Vale boy recently won the NSW Open Junior Pro Am at Twin Creeks Golf Club.

Joel represented Lakeside Golf Club Camden at the tournament to take out the top title amongst more than 70 competitive junior golfers.

At the event Joel was lucky enough to play with Rory Bourke, an Australian PGA player from Victoria, for the day along with two of his fellow juniors in a Texas Stableford style event.

The Pro AM is played under the auspices of the Pro Golfers Association (PGA) of Australia.

The juniors had full access to the driving range, putting green and chipping/bunker practice area, alongside the pros prior to tee off.

Joel managed to shoot 43 points on a tough course that was set up in preparation for the first round of the NSW Open.
