Lara Tees off at the 48th Orange Bowl today

Three South African Juniors, Haydn Porteus, Lara Weinstein and Matt Bright, pictured here, play their first round of the 48th Junior Orange Bowl Junor Golf Championship at the Biltmore Golf Course in Miami, Florida, USA today.

Entries are open to invited junior amateur golfers who will not have reached their 19th birthday by December 30 2011 and are not attending a university. This 72 hole stroke play tournament does not permit caddies and players should carry their own bags or use pull carts.

Haydn and Matt are accompanied by their parents and Erica Lefson is looking after Lara. Erica writes, “We have decided to stay at our friends in Ft Lauderdale and do the drive down to Miami each day – about 50 minutes but we have a great music station on the radio playing all the latest hits so time seemed to fly.

“The hotel at the golf course is like the Mt Nelson with more beautiful architecture – it is very famous and built in the 1920’s.
