Kelso golfer on course for success

Teenage golf sensation Danielle Ker will be targeting international glory next month when she heads to Quinta do Lago in Portugal.

The Roxburghe Golf Club member will compete in the final of the Telegraph BMW Junior Golf Championship – the world’s largest junior golf event.

Ker, who qualified after shooting a course-record one-under 70 at Kelso GC in a competition in July, will line-up against the cream of the UK’s top up-and coming golfers for the chance to lift the title at the prestigious resort.

2014 European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley will take time out from his preparations for next year’s event at Gleneagles to greet the 21 finalists who will gather at Quinta do Lago for the climax to this year’s championship from October 9-11.
