Young Cabot golf prodigy competes in national competition



Cabot, Arkansas – On Sunday, Berklee Turner, also known as ‘Supergirl’, a nine-year-old golf prodigy from Cabot, competed in the Drive, Chip, and Putt national championship in Augusta, Georgia.

In the driving portion, she placed 6th, second in chipping, and first in putting, which placed her second overall for girls ages 7-9.

Turner said, she could’ve done better at the driving and chipping, but the putting, “I did good”.

“Now she’s second instead of sixth. So, we’re just like you got on up there girl. In her typical mindset she goes, it’s okay I’m gonna win next year first place,” Turner’s mom Tracy said.

“Right after your interview, her putter broke,” Turner’s dad Rob admitted. “So, we had to find another new one. She was putting with a new putter, and we only had one week to practice with it. Pretty remarkable I think.”

Of a total of 32 thousand kids who tried out, Turner placed second overall.
