Teenage Power

HK Golfer - - Local Focus -

The first day of the Year of the Rooster saw a fly­ing start for lo­cal golf. 18-year-old Leon D’Souza scored a new course record of 61 at the New Course of the Hong Kong Golf Club with 10 birdies on his card in the Hong Kong Close Am­a­teur Cham­pi­onships. He went on to claim the ti­tle and booked him­self a spot at the UBS Hong Kong Open later this year. When the spot­lights are on D’Souza, 10 out of the top 12 fin­ish­ers are from the HKGA na­tional squad in­clud­ing Wu Sho Wai, Ter­rance Ng, Taichi Kho and Chris Mun. This pipe­line of ju­nior de­vel­op­ment prod­ucts will make a strong force to rep­re­sent Hong Kong in the com­ing years, es­pe­cially in the 2020 World Am­a­teur Team Cham­pi­onship to be held in Hong Kong.
