SPOKANE, Wash. — They are twins from Chewelah, they are 13 years old and they beat out several pros and amateurs with experience at the Rosauers Open Invitational this past weekend.
Billy and Anna Davis competed as amateurs. Both had the United Statse Golf Association handicap score needed to participate in the tournament.
"We had friends who told us about this tournament and we thought yeah it would be a good idea if we entered in the tournament just for fun," Billy said.
Anna echoed the same thoughts.
"It was pretty much just for fun. We were both like let's see how well we can do."
They've basically been training their whole lives.
"We started playing and hitting with plastic clubs since we could walk," Billy said.
Playing tournaments came soon after.
"We started playing tournament golf at like five or six just for fun," Anna said.
This weekend, Billy made the first cut and shot +9 for the tournament. Anna made both cuts and finished at par.
"It's just fun when you do good," they both said with a laugh.
Both beat out several pros and other amateurs. Neither were intimidated by the fact they were playing golfers older than them with more experience.
"It just feels like another tournament," Billy said.
Anna agreed she wasn't phased.
"Yeah it just feels like another tournament with older people," she said.
Why would they be? They did pretty well. Both were proud of their efforts this weekend.
