Langley's Lucas Ly has the best swing for his age group in the world according to a Little Linksters contest.

Ly’s sweet swing brings success

Langley seven-year-old declared to have best swing in the world for his age group



Lucas Ly has received some lofty praise.

The seven-year-old from Langley — who took up golf less than two years ago and already has a hole-in-one on his resume — has won the peewee division title (ages 7 and 8) for the best golf swing in the world.

The contest has parents sending a video of their child’s swing to Florida’s Little Linksters for judging.  This year’s celebrity judges included Jordan Speith and Lydia Ko, two of the world’s top golfers, as well as other PGA professionals and Golf Channel hosts on the panel.

There was a record number of entries, including entrants from 14 countries.
