A young amateur had his 15 minutes of golf fame Thursday at the European Tour’s KLM Open. By the looks of his swing, it may not be his last.
Dean Janssens stepped up to the 14th tee in a “Beat the Pros” game at the event and stole the show. Janssens, not even 10 years old, pulled his driver on the par 3. Dressed as if he was a tour player himself, Janssens calmly went through his pre-shot routine then hit a perfect shot to the front of the green.
Janssens succeeded in getting it closer to the hole than two of the three professionals in his group. We’ll call that a win.
