AMMAN — HRH Prince Hassan on Wednesday received Shergo Kurdi — the young Jordanian golf player who is ranked No. 1 in the United Kingdom and Europe in the U-12 category, according to a statement from the Prince’s office.

Prince Hassan praised Kurdi for his achievements and for representing Jordan at the international level, and called upon sports authorities involved in the golf sport in Jordan to embrace and sponsor Kurdi to develop his special talent so he can continue to represent Jordan in international championships.

Kurdi started playing golf at the age of five but he joined official tournaments seven years ago. He won the UK Kids Championship in 2013, the European Kids Championship in 2013 and the UK Kids Championship in 2015. He came second in the World Championship in Portugal in 2014.

He represented Jordan in all those championships except for the European tournament. In 2012 Shergo won the Jordanian Kids Golf Championship, and is invited to play at an open tournament at the Jordan Golf Club in Amman on Friday and Saturday.

Shergo is the first young player to receive sponsorship from Nike for his equipment and clothes.
