Watts back swinging his clubs



YEPPOON golfer Boyd Watts is back on his own two feet ready for a fresh assault on the golf course in 2006.

Watts, who turns 16 on Wednesday, will play in the Queensland Junior Open Championship at the Indooroopilly Golf Club from January 9-12.

He has only been back on the course for a couple of weeks after ditching his crutches following surgery on a dislocated knee and torn ligaments ? an injury he sustained at school just under three months ago.

While Watts said he was disappointed with the injury, missing three events, he welcomed the break. Since returning from the injury Watts said it "was going better than expected''.

"It's still hard, a bit tiring, but I'm getting back my feel and confidence,'' Watts said.

This will be Watts' ? playing off a two handicap ? third year at the Queensland Junior Open event and he hopes this year to break through and make the cut.

A Queensland development squad member, Watts said a top 10 finish would be nice.

Watts then heads to Melbourne for the Victorian Junior Masters, starting on January 15, and then it's back to school for Year 11 studies at St Brendan's College.

He is also building towards the Australian Junior Open Championships in Toowoomba in April.
