By Bernie Wijesekera

The much look forward to 4th annual Milo Junior Golf Championship 2006 to harness talent for the future organized by the Sri Lanka Golf Union will take place from 18 to 20 December at the RCGC course. Milo Nestle is sponsoring this junior championship in three age groups from under 15-17, 10-14 and for kids nine and under.

In all age groups the participants should be under 18, 15 on December one. The last category Under -9 should not have reached their 10th birthday on December 1st, 2006.

This junior open was started in the early 1980s by Richard Peiris & Co., A brainchild of former Cambridge blue Ian Peiris. To give that much need exposure to the less affluent caddies. The Golf Union is making a concerted effort to promote it. The likes of Anura Rohana, Lalith Kumara, Tissa Chandradasa, Mithun Perera etc big names in the Asian circuit are some of the beneficiaries.
It’s a talent spotting open tournament at grassroots level.

Later some of them will undergo training under Junior Co-ordinator Radha Sunderampillai.
