A Bumper Month for Junior Golfers

Golf’s future stars have been in the spotlight over the past four weeks with more than 200 local golfers taking part in junior tournaments staged by Hong Kong Golf Association (HKGA)

The HKGA Teams dominated 18th Dr. George Choa Cup at Hong Kong Golf Club

The Winter Junior Championship was the climax of such a bumper month and saw Taichi Kho claim the overall boys title over 36 holes at the Jockey Club Kau Sai Chau Public Golf Course (North Course). Kho (145) fired 69 on day two to win by a seven-stroke margin over Chris Mun (152). Jing Hu (152) was the overall girls champion who defeated 13-year-old Chloe Chan (157). Hu scored the tournament’s only sub-par round of 72 on day two to win by five.

Though losing the Winter Junior title, Chloe Chan has been part of HKGA-1 team to win the 18th Dr. George Choa Cup at Hong Kong Golf Club, a two-day invitational event for teams across Hong Kong and southern China. Chan (146) was backed up by fellow national team players Issac Lam (139), Virginie Ding (163) and Yannick Artigolle (153). HKGA-2 and HKGA-3 team secured second and third place respectively, showing off the calibre of Hong Kong’s young golfers – both male and female – is at all-time high.
