Lucknow, Jun 21 (UNI) For the first time in India, an excellent opportunity awaits junior golfers to participate in the prestigious US Kids Golf World Championship, 2008 to be held at Pinehurst, North Carolina, US from July 31 to August 2.

GolfRiTe, a US-based private limited company, actively engaged in promoting and improving standards of junior golf in India, is organising the qualifier for the US Kids Golf World Championship, 2008 at Tarudhan Valley Golf Resort, Gurgaon in association with Chimmys Golf on June 29 2008.

The qualifier is open to all boys and girls aged between 5 and 12 years according to company release here.

Earlier, Indian juniors desiring to participate in the US Kids World Championship had to travel abroad to participate in the game.

Since only the winner in each age and gender group from over 60 contenders qualifies to participate in the World Championship, USKG encourages golfers to enter multiple qualifiers. At least one entry has been received from the US for the Gurgaon qualifier.

A player's age on July 31, 2008 will determine his/her age bracket for the qualifier.

The winners in each age and gender group, who meet the scoring requirement, will qualify to compete in the US Kids Golf World Championship 2008. In case, the winner in a particular category fails to meet the requirement on the qualifing day but, seems to possess exceptional talent, he/she might still gain entry after consultation with tournament committee and the US Kids Headquarters.

Entry forms for the qualifier to be held at Tarudhan Valley Golf Resort, Gurgaon on June 29, 2008 would be available at all major Golf Clubs across India, including Lucknow Golf Club, the release said.
