Mid Summer Wins for Shinichi and Christy
Shinichi Mizuno continued his recent run of fine form to ease to victory in the Bushnell Mid Summer Classic in late June.
Mizuno, who won a youth event in Thailand the previous week, fired a fine 68 over the New Course at the Hong Kong Golf Club to establish a six-stroke margin of victory. Jeffrey Wang, Michael Regan Wong and Jonathan Yeap tied for second place with 74s, while Shinichi's younger brother Shinya placed fifth with a 75. Defending champion Charles Stone finished back in the pack after a lacklustre 84.
In the Ladies' division, Christy Chong edged out Emilie Vickie Leung on count back for the title after the pair recorded matching 32-point hauls. Cathy Chung earned third spot, a point further back.
The long-running tournament is the most popular event on the HKGA calendar, with over 320 players taking part.
