Meet Louis Klein, the 12-year-old walking in putts on the DP World Tour
What were you doing when you were 12? If we had to guess, we’d say you weren’t playing in a professional golf tournament.
Well, meet Louis Klein, a 12-year-old competing on the DP World Tour, formally known as the European Tour, this week at the D+D Real Czech Masters at Albatross Golf Resort in Prague, Czech Republic.
Klein posted an opening-round 4-over 76 on Thursday. He was even par through 17 holes before stumbling to a quadruple-bogey 8 at the par-4 18th. On Friday, Klein was 2 under through 12 holes before playing his final six at 4 over for a day-two 2-over 74.
Despite the tough finish, the young man walked in this long par putt at the par-3 third, his 12th of the day, during the second round and the fans loved it.
Two-under-par for the second round 👏
