He got his first set of golf clubs when he was a toddler and never put them down. Eight-year-old Asher Katz has been playing golf since he could walk and this week the Ridgefield boy was lucky enough to swing his clubs with some of golf’s elite players at the Travelers Championship. Asher was one of the youngest of 40 golfers selected to participate in this year’s Eversource PGA TOUR Player Experience for Junior Golfers at the TPC River Highlands in Cromwell.
“It was so cool to play with pro golfers. I learned a lot,” said Asher. “I love to play golf and I hope the tips I learned will help me improve my game.”
