15-year-old golf prodigy qualifies for PGA Tour event in November

Oliver Betschart, a 15-year-old golf prodigy, has qualified for the Butterfield Bermuda Championship that’s set to take place at Port Royal Golf Club in Southampton, Bermuda, from Nov. 9-12. 

Betschart, a native of Bermuda, became the youngest player to win the Port Royal Golf Club Championship last year. This week, he shot 3-over par in the 54-hole qualifier to be given an opportunity to compete against some of the best in the world next month, as it’s the only PGA Tour event in Bermuda.

Eric West and Scott Roy also qualified for the event. 

Betschart, though, will be the youngest player to start on a PGA Tour event since 2014.
