Local standout youth golfer Austin Jet had another big showing recently.
Jet, 7, qualified for the US Kids Golf World Championships, which will be held in Pinehurst, N.C., in the first week of August. Jet, who lives in White Rock, won a qualifying event earlier this month to grab a spot in the world championship tournament.
This is the second straight year Jet will travel to the world championships. After his 2009 appearance, Gov. Bill Richardson proclaimed Aug. 8 “Austin Jet Day” in New Mexico.
