Local 8-year-old golf champion to play in world tourney
Ocean Pines resident Nikki Clark is the winner of the U.S. Kids Golf Maryland State Championship in the category Girls 8 and Under. Because the 8 year old won first place in the tournament last month, shooting 49 on a nine-hole green, she was invited to the U.S. Kids Golf World Championship in Williamsburg, Va. this week. Nikki, her father â€œDaddy the Caddyâ€ and her mother Joanna are spending Tuesday through Sunday in Virginia so Nikki can compete in the world tournament with around 700 other children in 12 age categories.
