7 Yr-Old South African Simthandile Tshabalala Breaking World Records in Golf

At a tender age of 7, Simthandile Tshabalala, from Johannesburg, South Africa is an ace in the game of golf. Simthandile began competing in major local and international tournaments in 2018 with a number of trophies already in his kitty.

US golf officials have tagged him ‘SimTiger’ on account of his spectacular performance in the game.  

Last year Simthandile put up a wonderful performance in the World Golf Championship in Malaysia and is now in the top 15 of world kids’ golf rankings.

Grade 2 South African pupil who faced difficulties obtaining a visa will represent his country at the Australian Open Golf Championships this week.

On account of the difficulty in obtaining a visa for him, his father, Bonginkosi Tshabalala took to social media asking for anyone, including Sport and Recreation Minister, Tokozile Xasa, to help.

Hi @MbalulaFikile kindly help. My 7 year old son qualified to represent South Africa in the Australian Open Golf Championship taking place in Australia from 6th to 9th April 2019. We have applied for Visas 4 weeks ago but nothing yet. Can you assist with expediting the process?

Many South Africans rallied behind the boy and the problem was resolved Tuesday after government officials intervened, reports IOL.

The competition takes place from Saturday to Tuesday.

“The championship is a tournament attended by top players from around the world and he (SimTiger) was selected after championships in Malaysia in December,” Tshabalala, who is also the young golfer’s caddy and coach said earlier this week.

Meanwhile, Simthandile, who is excited about the development, said he is looking forward to competing against peers from around the world.

“I’ve worked hard in the past three months preparing for this tournament. It’s going to be difficult but I’ll rise to the challenge,” he was quoted by Daily Sun.

The 7-year-old will also compete in tournaments such as the European Tour Golf Championship in Scotland next month, and the Pepsi Kids Golf Championship in July.

Simthandile started playing golf at the age of 5. His parents had introduced him to various sports such as tennis, swimming, soccer and golf when he was just 2.

“When he was four, he was hooked on golf and he never looked back,” his father said.

Many people, especially South Africans have expressed joy over the young boy’s talent and have wished him all the best as he readies to become a World Open champion in future.
