Hamza Bilal Sarfraz of Pakistan is all set to make history at the biggest stage of international golf at the IMGA Junior World Golf Championship 2022 which is scheduled from 12-15 July at the most coveted golfing venue - the Torrey Pines, San Diego, USA.

In doing so, he becomes the first Pakistani to represent the country and participate in this prestigious event which has previously produced champions like Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy.

Hamza is one of the only two players who qualified for this event while playing at the British Junior Golf Tour at Cambridge in September 2021. He played an impressive one over 73 at the Cambridge Country Club against a heavily contested field of under 18 boys from all over the UK.

In view of his performance and qualification for the IMGA event, he also received invitation to participate in the FCG Callaway Junior World Golf Championship at Palm Springs, California, USA from 18-20 July 2022.

Hamza began his golfing journey at Quetta Golf Club and has subsequently been a member of Rawalpindi Golf Club. In his early years in golf, he was been most fortunate to be coached by the legendary Agha Muhammad Ali Shah at Quetta and Masood Malik in Rawalpindi.

The talented young boy came into prominence by finishing Runners Up in Junior National Golf Championship at Lahore in 2017. Through consistent hard work and display of grit and determination, Hamza went on to win several national events from 2017 to 2020 on the Junior Tour in Pakistan. In 2021 he contested against amateurs and finished Runners Up at the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Amateur Championship at Peshawer.

The country can be rightly proud of producing such a gifted and promising young sportsman. As he steps onto the iconic Torrey Pines Golf Course, he certainly deserves the prayers and good wishes of the entire nation.
