Matthew De Heus continues hot streak; wins US Kids Orlando Summer Tour at Orange County National
IMG Academy's Matthew De Heus has been on a roll since arriving on campus. De Heus has won four straight Greater Sarasota Junior Golf Association events, and on Saturday, July 13, he took his fifth US Kids Summer Tour victory, this time, playing on the Orlando Summer Tour and winning at Orange County National Country Club in Orlando, Fla. De Heus faced a tough challenge along the way, only besting second place finisher Brendan Valdes of Orlando by a single stroke. De Heus overcame challenging playing conditions to finish with a 41 in the single round event.
Earlier this summer on the US Kids Tour, playing at Walt Disney World's Magnolia Course, De Heus won the Florida State Championship in the Boys 10s Division. At the event, De Heus notched a 10-over 118 for a three-stroke victory over the state's best 10-year olds players.
