After a hectic August schedule, the aspiring pro golfer hopes to also to take part in the Venice Tour in Italy in September and, should he qualify, a tournament in America in the beginning of 2018.
The youngster dreams of becoming world number one and playing in the Masters Tournament.
Christopher Strang told the Euro Weekly News: “He is a busy boy, his coach is amazed with how good he is.
“He has the drive to be the best and loves the game.”
Christopher also recommends any parents with children interested in golf enrol them into academies like the Michael Campbell Golf Academy so that they can learn “discipline, sportsmanship and enjoyment in the game of golf.”
