Epsom golfing star of the future Enrique Dimayuga has done what not many people will do, speak to millions of viewers on Sky Sports.

The 12-year-old was featured on Game Changers last weekend after winning the order of merit for his age group on the Surrey Golf Nike Rookie Tour.

Dimaygua, who plays at Cuddington Golf Club in Banstead off a handicap of nine, said: “I am enjoying the tour massively and every day I play, it just gets better.

"There are a lot of challenges, and battling it out on some of the finest courses in Surrey is exciting.

"I love playing in county matches, meeting other talented golfers and it is a privilege to be part of the unbeaten."

He added: “Sky Sports was amazing. I remembered that not many people get a chance to speak on telly in front of millions of people.

“After the show we got to walk round the Sky campus and see all the studios, which was really cool.”
