The Third Annual USKids Golf Jekyll Island Cup was held President’s Day Weekend at the Jekyll Island Golf Club in Jekyll Island, Georgia. Three hundred ninety nine golfers ages four to twelve and representing six different countries including the United States, Canada, Mexico, Great Britain, Denmark and Hong Kong, qualified for this event. Awards were presented to the top five golfers in each age division with the top three finishers receiving automatic invitations to the 2006 USKids Golf World Championship to be held in July at Pinehurst, North Carolina.

Sunday’s first round created quite a challenge for all golfers with outside temperatures in the high forties and 20-mile per hour winds. Six year old Will Bozeman, caddied by his father, ended the day in a three way tie for 13th place out of 36 participants in his age group. After the fifth hole on Monday’s round, Will was five under his previous day’s score and fought for every shot. He completed the tournament in the 19th position.

Will plans to participate again in the Jacksonville Summer Local Tour where he finished in second place for the 2005 point standings. He also plans to play in some of the World Championship Qualifiers. For more information on USKids Golf you can visit www.uskidsgolf.com.
