ABERDEEN, N.C. — Twin brothers from Liberty took their golf talents to the global stage for a second straight year at the Legacy Golf Links at Pinehurst.
Camden and Presten Tyrrell shot three-round scores of 247 and 251, respectively, at the U.S. Kids World Championships Aug. 1 to 3. Camden, who shot a tourney-best 79 in the second round, placed 97th.
The second round was also Presten's best as he shot an 81 to take 106th place in the field of 144 10-year-old boys.
“They made a big improvement,” said father Chris Tyrrell.
The Tyrrell brothers earned their spots in the event for a second straight year due to placing well in local U.S. Kids Golf seasons. They both have earned season champion status in recent years, as Presten won in 2017 and Camden was victorious in 2018.
More than 50 countries are represented in the World Championships, according to the U.S. Kids Golf website, www.uskidsgolf.com.
