Taichi Kho and Virginie Ding won their respective division, both in playoff dramas at the Hong Kong Junior Close Championship at the Hong Kong Golf Club in Fanling
Winning a playoff is nothing new for the 16-year-old Taichi, who won his first Hong Kong Junior Open title on the third extra hole last August. Taichi and close friend Kevin Wu Sho Wai were neck and neck after 54 holes, both finished 217. When the pair started to tee-off on the first extra hole, heavy rain arrived. Taichi needed only a two-foot tap-in putt for par to win, while Kevin three-putted for bogey.
