Biggie "The Bomber" Gibbons
Elijah Gibbons aka BIG is the current 2023 WJGC World Junior Golf Champion in the 7 and Under division. However, his golfing journey did not start here. He has been obsessed with swinging a golf club ever since he picked up his first plastic club at 14 months old. He then progressed to garden where he would often be found chipping away until it was dark, something he still does now at 7!
His game progressed so impressively quickly that by the age of 4 he was accepted into Prince’s Golf Club’s junior membership and also starting competing on the British Junior Golf Tour, the UK’s number 1 junior golf tour. He since then has competed over 100 times and won multiple trophies even when competing with boys two years older than himself.
The most impressive thing about Elijah is his absolute passion for the game and the wonderful demeanour and attitude he shows when he has a club in his hand. It truly is inspirational and infectious to anyone that spends time with him on the golf course. His talent and work rate over the last year has just gone through the roof and this has just led to him winning the World Junior Golf Championship at Amendoeira Resort in Algarve, Portugal.
Elijah beat the best young golfers from countries such as Thailand, Slovakia, Italy and Cyprus to claim the World Champion title. He shot the lowest round of the entire week on day 2 with a stunning +1. His win here has led to an automatic invitation to the Callaway World Championship and the Future Champions of Golf International Event both to be held in San Diego, California in July 2023. The sky really is the limit for this young man so keep an eye on his progress over the next few years!
