Young golfer’s success in US

Young Inishowen golfer Jack Duffy is the toast of the peninsula after finishing an impressive tied 21st out of a field of 148 competitors in the US Kids World Championship.

13-year-old Jack had rounds of 75, 76 and 72 to finish +7.

Jack’s performance meant he qualified to play for the international team against the USA the following day. The team consists of the top four golfers in each category 13’s, 14’s and 15-18.

He is expected to arrive back in Buncrana later in the week, the pride of Buncrana Golf Club, who told their facebook followers the “future looks bright” for the teenager.

They said: “This is a credit to Jack and his parents for all the hard work put in.”
