Hundreds of golf's future stars from around the globe have flown in to Scotland for the world's biggest junior golf event.

The junior European Championship tees off today in East Lothian, where around 500 players between the ages of six to 18 will compete.

Budding golf stars have travelled from places as far away as Australia, Venezuela and Columbia.

And the three-day competition will see the kiddy golfers also battle it out at the Craigielaw and Longniddry golf clubs.

The top finishers in each category will go on to compete in the Van Horn Cup – an event modelled on the Ryder Cup.

The top five finishers in each age and gender group will automatically qualify for the US Kids Golf World Championships at Pinehurst Golf Club, North Carolina, in August.ADNFCR-2931-ID-19810553-ADNFCR
