Six-year-old golfer picked to play for Britain against teens three times his age

A mini-golfer has been picked to play alongside teenage golf stars – at the age of just six years old.

Jayden Phipps has been swinging a club since he was two years old and says US Open champion Justin Rose is his hero.

And he has now been picked to play for Britain alongside 17-year-olds at the World Junior Championships in the United States next month.

Jayden started tee-ing off almost as soon as he could walk. By two, he could hit a ball into a cup ten times in a row. At four he got a hole in one using just one hand. And last year he beat Ryder Cup legend Colin Montgomerie in a nearest-the-hole contest.

Jayden said: "I'd love to be a golfer when I grow up."

Mum Karen, 46, and dad Ashley, 48, of Wednesbury, West Midlands, said: "He can't stop winning but we have no idea where his talent comes from."
