Aussie youth prepared for tilt in the US

A strong West Australian contingent will support Australia's hope for next week's American boy championship in Ohio.

Five and a half – Australians will participate in the main event on the World Youth Calendar, led by AJGA No.2 ranked Karl Vilips.

Vilips, based in Florida, is accompanied by fellow West Australian Josh Greer and another youngster living in Perth, Connor McKinney, although the latter represents his native Scotland.

Other Aussies in the field include the Australian junior champion Elvis Smylie, who already played his way to the Australian Open in December in Sydney, and a bunch of youngsters with fascinating names.

Smylie & # 39; s colleague Gold Coaster Seongyong Yoon is better known by his mates as Terry, while graduated from Camberwell Grammar, Melbourne & Kuangyu Chen, known to his friends on his Florida base as Tony.

And although it is an eclectic group, they will all have one name in mind before turning into the stroke phase on Toledo & Inverness Club – that of Min Woo Lee.

Lee, also from Perth, who recently received his European Tour card for 2020 in his first year as a professional, won this event three short years ago.

The event consists of 36 holes of percussion on July 15 and 16 (American time), after which the field is lowered by 156 players to the lowest 64 scorers. From the following day, there will be six rounds of competition games and will end with a 36-hole final on July 20.

Vilips, who played two years ago in the inaugural Junior Presidents Cup in New Jersey, is the top rated player in the international team stand for the event this year in Royal Melbourne in December and will start with the favorites next week.

Smylie, Yoon, Greer and McKinney have all been successful in this format too, so there is great hope that the hunt to replicate Lee & # 39; s heroic deeds will be a lengthy one.
