Betschart places fourth in Austin
Young golfer Oliver Betschart enjoyed a positive outing at the Balcones Country Club in Austin, Texas, which is part of the Southern Texas PGA Junior Tour.
Under warm, humid and cloudy skies and breezy conditions on Monday, the ten-year-old, the youngest in his under-12 group, had a rough start shooting a ten-over-par 45 on the front nine. However, he managed to recover to shoot a four over on the back nine to finish 14 over and fourth overall in a field of ten players. Through his coach Kim Swan at Port Royal Golf Club, Betschart was put in contact with long-time colleague and Texas open PGA tour winner David Ogrin.
Ogrin runs a PGA Academy out of New Braunfels just east of San Antonio where Betschart is training in preparation for the Optimist International Junior Championships in Miami next month.
As part of his training, Betschart will be competing in several tournaments on the STPGA tour during the month of June.
