AT 11 years old, Currambine golfer Lachie Hall already aspires to be the world’s best.

The third-generation golfer and Francis Jordan Catholic School student started playing when he was three and entered his first competition at seven.

He was the youngest member to join Joondalup Country Club last year and has been racking up achievements, including winning Golf WA’s Order of Merit in the MyGolf Tour Tiger Tee division in 2014 and the Primary School Championships in the boys stableford category in 2015.

Though he enjoys making new friends through the sport, Lachie also likes the solo nature of golf.

“I have no one really to rely on but myself,” he said.

Lachie is continuing to flourish, recently winning the club’s C Grade Plate competition and scoring his first hole-in-one at the Sun City Junior Amateur Open.

“I ran up to see the hole and see if the ball went in,” he said.

“I was really happy and excited.”

He said he was “a little bit competitive” with his father and hoped to make the State team.

His idols are Tiger Woods and his godfather Michael Sim and he has his sights set on a career in the sport.

“I want to get to number one in the world,” he said.
