Some of the country's most promising golfers will hit the Wagga Country Club this weekend.
The Country Club will host its Wagga Junior Masters on Saturday and Sunday, an event that kicks off the Jack Newton Junior Golf statewide series.
Golfers will travel to Wagga from across the state, while there will also be a strong contingent from the Country Club and the Southern Sports Academy representing the city.
Southern Sports Academy head coach, and Country Club professional, James Purcell is looking forward to seeing how the local kids perform.
"There will be close to 20 kids from Wagga participating," Purcell said.
"All the Academy kids are playing, which is good and there will be plenty to keep an eye on."
Club champion Bart Carroll is considered a strong chance of taking out the Masters on his home course.
Purcell said fellow Wagga players Ryley Watson, Will Burkinshaw and Tom Stewart were also players to watch over the two days.
Purcell said it is a great opportunity for the young golfers to get tournament experience.
"During our Academy sessions we've been working a lot on performance and how to play golf when under pressure," he said.
"How to aim and pick targets while big crowds of people are watching and cameras clicking so I'll be keeping an eye on how they perform under pressure."
