WINNERS ANNOUNCED!!

4th Annual International Pee vWee Golf Swing Contest

 

winners announcment 2013-2014The votes were tabulated and it was by far the toughest year ever for our judges! Today, at the 2014 PGA Merchandise Show, our winners were announced. This was  a record year in terms of the number of entries and they came in from over 14 different countries. I am so pleased that Little Linksters in partnership with the Littlest Golfer, Inc. has been able to bring this opportunity to youth golf enthusiast ages 2-8! This event is about way more than great swings or a “contest”….its about FUN….Its about all that is GOOD about youth golf for kids 8 & under….Its about growing the game in ways that are not mainstream….its about showing parents that golf IS a sport that should be a choice for the “Pee Wee” segment….its about showing our own industry that we NEED to pay attention to the segment of youth golfers….

We are judging golf swings….YES…but beyond that we are showing the potential of the very young and hopefully inspiring the peers of these very young kids through this contest and letting them know that golf is FUN and something they CAN do and try!

ALL the kids were amazing and this was extremely difficult for the judges. I know as a parent myself that we hope for the best for our own children and I know that some amazingly talented children that have done great things in the game already, at such young ages, may have not made our top 3. I know that some may be disappointed. For those that are, I can assure you that your children are held in the absolute highest regard by myself, our organization, our judges and all that strive to grow the game of golf through our youth. ALL children that entered are Champions and to be applauded! You all inspire me each and every day!
