The fruits of the Under-13 junior golf development programme will get a real test in 2014 when two junior golfers are expected to take part in an international tournament in Scotland.
Golf Union of Malawi (GUoM) president James Chimwaza said the tournament will be hosted by Royal and Ancient (R&A).
It will be the first time that young Malawian golfers will take part in the tournament.
â€œGUoM is most appreciative of this project and we are thankful to the committee, parents and all the kids for their commitment towards this project.
â€œThis project is a good seed for development and in 2014 we will take the first step by sending a young boy and girl of a handicap of not more than 15 to take part in the R & A tournament,â€ said Chimwaza.
He said selection of the golfers will based on their performance in the Under-13 Junior Golf Challenge tournaments.
Chimwaza appealed to the young golfers to take the tournaments seriously as they have something to play for.
The development committeeâ€™s chairperson Dingaan Chirwa said the project is proving to be a success.
â€œThere are a number of young golfers who have shown a lot of potential with consistent performance and the fight for the international tournament slots will also motivate them further,â€ said Chirwa.
He said currently, the junior challenge golf tournaments are on hold since the young golfers are busy with school.
