MIGHTY Max Reynolds is targeting another top ten finish when he takes on the world’s best junior golfers in Scotland next week.

Nine-year-old Max, from Wheatley Hills, shot tenth place in his first ever US Kids European Championships last year.

And father Dean reckons his son is in line to repeat that feat - if not better it - at next week’s global gathering of the world’s most talented young players.

Dean said: “Max is playing really well at the moment and we’re pretty confident he’ll do well.

“He’s practised really hard over the winter and put a lot of work into his chipping and putting.

“The way he strikes a ball is second to none, so his driving takes care of itself.

“He’ll be looking for another top ten finish in Scotland.”
