Alex Heard placed T-47 in the 2016 U.S. Kids World Championships in Pinehurst, NC, at Mid South Club. Competing against a strong field of 148 11-year olds from 22 countries, the 54-hole event featured two weather delays at the Arnold Palmer-designed private club.

Alex opened with a solid 75 in spite of 2 double-bogeys, including a heartbreaking double on the finishing hole played in a driving rainstorm. His second round 76 was full of scoring opportunities, but he struggled with the bent grass greens. He finished with a solid 76 in the final round with a tougher course setup.

Although this was his lowest finish in six years at the Worlds, he still kept his head high and looks forward to coming back again next year.
