New Zim golf sensation hits US fields


A United States-based Zimbabwean teenage golfer, Sean Crocker, has qualified for the prestigious Junior World Golf Championships from July 12-15 in San Diego, California, US.

The 14-year-old golfing sensation is based in Westlake Village, California, where he stays with his parents Gary and Shelley who are both Zimbabwean.

Crocker booked his place in the Junior World Gold Championships after winning in the Under-13-14 age-group category at Las Vegas Championship, Future Champions of Golf, at Primm Valley in California.

The tournament in California, Nevada, Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, Florida, Washington, Colorado, Montana, Utah, Arizona, and Michigan was an open qualifying event for the World Golf Championships.

The young golfing prodigy, who is believed to be receiving assistance from Zimbabwean golf legend Nick Price, is being tipped for greatness as he has been dominating junior tournaments in the US since 2009.

Some of his accolades include being the 2009 Soule Park Open Champion, the 2009 Camarillo Open Champion, the 2010 Thousand Oaks Champion, the 2010 Taylor Made Ventura County Champion, runner-up in the 2010 Titleist Matchplay Tournament and the 2010 Calabasas Summer Champion.
