Chiswick schoolgirl Samantha Fuller became the U6 National Champion after recording the biggest ever win at the 2005 British and Irish National Wee Wonders Golf Championships for children aged six and under.

Playing at the renowned St Andrews course in Scotland, Samantha won the competition by a massive 25 shots from her nearest competitor.

Six year old Samantha, a pupil at St Mary’s RC Primary School, won the Chiswick Junior Tour Championship at the age of five. She qualified for the U6 National Championship event by winning the South of England Regional Championships back in June 2005.

Full of pride for his daughter’s laudable achievements, Ashley Fuller said "Samantha started playing golf at the age of two, one day she wants to become a golf professional."

Who knows, with teen wonder Michele Wie, who recently announced her decision to turn professional, already being worth a massive US$10 million in endorsements at the tender age of 16, Samantha’s special talent could one day make her worth more than her weight in gold.
