Local Kid Makes It To Golf World Championship

Posted: Updated:

 (KCEN) -- A local kid makes it to the U.S. Kids Golf World Championship.

Corbin Null is a third grade student at Spring Valley Elementary in Hewitt. 

After competing in eight tournaments during the U.S. Kids Golf Spring Tour, he earned enough points in his age group to be crowned "Player of the Year."

He was then invited to play in the U.S. Kids Golf World Championship in Pinehurst, North Carolina. There, he tied for 60th out of 142 eight year olds. 

“It was a wonderful experience for Corbin to get to play against the best golfers in the world,” said mother Dana Null. “Corbin has only been playing golf competitively for seven months. Several of these kids have been playing since they were four years old!”

Corbin is currently playing in the summer tour in Austin and is in second place with points. He will continue playing in the fall tour as well.

He hopes to earn another invitation to the World Championship next summer.
