Golf Asia - - GOLFING SCENE -

Lion Cubs Golf Cham­pi­onship 2017 @ Na­tional Level was held over nine holes at the Mil­len­nium Course of the Sin­ga­pore Is­land Coun­try Club (SICC) re­cently. The event saw an over­whelm­ing re­sponse of 174 young golfers, all pri­mary school stu­dents of 13 years and be­low from a to­tal of 52 schools. There were 124 com­peti­tors from the PC Di­vi­sion and 50 from the Hand­i­cap Di­vi­sion. Many were de­ter­mined to im­prove on their scores from the pre­vi­ous year while new faces put them­selves to the test. The ex­hil­a­rat­ing event pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity for par­tic­i­pants to meet like-minded play­ers and foster friend­ships.

Be­liev­ing that early ex­po­sure to com­pet­i­tive golf­ing will nur­ture the young golfers’ con­fi­dence in their golf­ing jour­ney, event or­gan­iser Hon­shin Golf Acad­emy aimed to cre­ate a plat­form for as­pir­ing ju­nior golfers to show­case their tal­ents. This was ac­com­pa­nied by the goal for play­ers to emerge from the com­pe­ti­tion with a greater un­der­stand­ing of their own skills and con­di­tion.

Based on a unique scor­ing sys­tem which high­lights their phys­i­cal and men­tal en­durance, play­ers were re­warded for their ef­forts. There were 16 out­stand­ing play­ers whom achieved Gold with Hon­ours. Also, there were 30 Gold, 41 Sil­ver, and 33 Bronze medal re­cip­i­ents. For them, the big­gest achieve­ment was unan­i­mous. It was sur­pass­ing one’s own tar­get.
