Have you got swinging star? Little Linkster "Best Pee-Wee Golf Swing in the World" contest

Have you got a Rory McIlroy at home?

The Little Linksters Association for Junior Golf Development and The Littlest Golfer Inc. have announced details of their Annual Best “Pee Wee” Golf Swing in the World Video Contest.

The popular contest allows parents to upload a video to YouTube of their “Little Linksters” swing where they will be judged by the likes of world No 1s Jordan Spieth and Lydia Ko or PGA Tour star Keegan Bradley.

Videos must be submitted over the following two months, and prizes will be awarded in four age groups ranging from ages 3 to 8.

“We are ecstatic to have both the men’s and women’s #1 golfers in the world joining us this year,” explained PGA Professional Brendon Elliott, founder of Little Linksters, LLC and Little Linksters Association for Junior Golf Development.

“We are very humbled to have had such a recognised and esteemed celebrity panel of judges over the years, including Annika Sorenstam, Hank Haney, Kelly Sheehan, Lexi Thompson, Jim McLean, Win McMurry, Paula Creamer, Nicole Weller, Chuck Evans, Brittany Lincicome, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus, Keegan Bradley, Mark Bradley, Allen Wronowski, Frank Nobilo and Holly Sonders.

"This year might take the cake in terms of our judges! To have Jordan and Lydia aboard this year is amazing."

Last year’s contest received 200 entries from over 14 countries around the world.

Elliott, who was a US Kids Golf Top 50 Kids Teacher (2010, ‘11 and ’12), a 2013 US Kids Golf Top 50 Master Kids Teacher, a four-time NFPGA Junior Golf Leader award winner (2011-14), as well as a three-time Top 50 Growth of the Game Teacher as named by the Golf Range Association, will lead the judging.

He will be assisted by this year’s celebrity panel of judges, which is arguably one of the best assembled groups the contest has seen in its six years.
