BURLINGTON, Vt. - The next generation of Vermont's golfers are making some noise. A team of young players representing the Vermont PGA is playing in the PGA Junior Golf League. It's the second year for the league. Competing in a round robin tournament, the team recently beat Worcester, Massachusetts.  Friday it will play a second round match-up at one of the best courses in the world, The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts. The opportunity to play at such a prestigious golf course is an amazing one for these young players.

"I'm looking forward to winning this, just playing this and having fun," Eight year old Burlington golfer, Brady Havers, said.  "It's really cool that we get to do all this stuff."

"It's nice to go around to different courses and play," Thirteen year old South Burlington golfer, Cameron Yee, said. "I'm looking forward to just going out and playing the course and just having a chance to play it and hopefully play good."

The Country Club of Brookline has held numerous championship events and hosted the Ryder Cup in 1999.  It's currently ranked as on of the top ten courses in the world.
