Six-yr-old Zac Wolfe has won the 2022 Australian Junior Age Golf Championships (under 7s division) held at Royal Pines on the Gold Coast.

Zac gets his trophy

Zac tied the championship but beat a Thai competitor in a playoff to claim the trophy. The juniors played three nine-hole rounds.o

Not bad for the budding star who made a hole in one when he was only four.

His father Jem told J-Wire: “It’s been a wonderful journey thus far, where Zac has made many great friends, had some wonderful experiences and learnt great life lessons about sportsmanship, hard work and resilience, amongst others.”

Zac’s father and mother played golf with handicaps in the low teens and his grandmother is also an avid player. Jem added: “She enjoys semi-regular rounds with Zac.


It was clear from a young age that Zac had freakish hand-eye coordination and loved hitting balls around the house as a baby. He drew a crowd each time we were at the park playing tennis, golf or cricket.
As an individual sport, we’ve been fortunate that the Huntingdale Golf Club’s Pennant Team and a number of young up and coming professionals and elite amateurs have very much embraced Zac. He loves the comradery and competition when practising alongside them. He is a member of the club.”
Zac started prep at Caulfield Grammar this year.

Zac’s world-beating swing

Jem continued: “It sounds like a cliché, however, we genuinely have no expectations for his golf, albeit are of course committed to helping him develop his golf and broader athletic ability wherever we can.”


Zac’s record to date:


At 2 years old he won LittleLinksters world’s best kids golf swing competition judged by Jack Nicklaus and a number of PGA players.

At 3 years old Zac won his first junior tournament.

First tournament hole in one at age 4.

He has qualified for the prestigious US Kids Golf World Championships to be held at Pinehurst (North Carolina, USA) in August, in addition to the IMG World Championships at Torrey Pines and Champion of Champions tournament in Ireland next year where he will be representing Australia.
