You Probably Haven't Heard Of Ireland's Latest World Champion, But You Will

This is Tom McKibbin. The 12-year-old from Newton Abbey in Northern Ireland has been playing various world junior golf championships around the world, and even Graeme MacDowell has taken notice of him. McDowell has invited McKibbin along with him at two events this year including the Irish Open, and it looks like it's paying off.

McKibbin was playing at the 2015 World Junior Championships at Pinehurst over the weekend. After shooting rounds of 69-75-73, the Northern Irishman took home the trophy for the U-12s by a stroke.

That's some shooting Tom. Hopefully we'll get to see Tom light up the courses on the pro circuit with McDowell, McIlroy, Lowry and Paul Dunne in the near future.
