Six-year-old from Essex set for Junior World Golf Championship

It is the dream of every junior golfer to play at the Junior World Golf Championships and for Ryino from Essex, his dream is set to come true.

The young golfing phenomenon has gotten better and got better under the tuition of his father David Salisbury who coaches at Boyce Hill Golf Club in South Benfleet.

He is now set to take part in the six and under boys division of the World Championships which will be played on the Pine Glen Course at Sycuan Resort in California.

After competing in tournaments at Dale Hill and Cambridge Country Club, Ryino has managed to seal his place in the prestigious event which will also see players play in five other age divisions.

"We did lots of hand-eye coordination where I would throw a ball at him and then he'd whack it with his little plastic club," his father David told BBC News.

"You've got to make it hard enough to do but not too hard that he doesn't want to do it, and not too easy that it's not challenging. 

"When you get those days when he's not listening to daddy's coaching, I've always got that in the back pocket (message from Justin Rose)."

Former World No.1 and US Open champion Justin Rose sent Ryino a message of support off the back of his qualification, as the Englishman revealed he used to play golf with his father David. 

David just wants the little Lefty to enjoy his golf and as you can see by the footage above, Ryino certainly has the opportunity to rapidly rise up the amateur and professional ranks.
