Myrtle Beach, SC (WMBF) – The 4th Annual Myrtle Beach Junior Golf Clinic featured from kids who could teach the adults a thing or two.  The event was hosted by the Myrtle Beach Junior Golf Foundation, South Carolina Junior Golf Foundation, First Tee of Myrtle Beach, the Boys & Girls Club and the YMCA.

About 65 young golfers took part in the clinic at Whispering Pines Golf Course.  Some of the younger golfers were hitting balls impressively far and with accuracy some older golfers would envy.

"A lot of these kids they can hit better than older adults," said 12 year old golfer Trevor Sievers.

The kids got hands-on instruction from area pros.  They also took part in long drive, chipping and putting contests.  Those young-golfers with their sights set on the PGA or LPGA Tours knew events like this one are important steps along the way.

"[I have to] practice really hard," said Kayla Parsons when asked what she needs to do to make the LPGA Tour one day.
