Like Fa­ther, Like Son

HK Golfer - - Hk Men's Close Amateur Championships -

Taichi Kho has been ris­ing through the ranks in the last twelve months. His love of the game was built at a very young age with tremen­dous sup­port from his fa­ther Vic­tor. “My wife Yoko and I en­joy play­ing golf,” Vic­tor said, “It is prob­a­bly nat­u­ral that we pass on this pas­sion to our son Taichi.”

This fa­mil­ial bond­ing is strength­ened through fre­quent golf games. Dur­ing last month’s Hong Kong Men’s Close Am­a­teur, Vic­tor was cad­dy­ing for Taichi. “As much as I en­joy watch­ing him play and giv­ing him on-course tips,” this fa­ther/cad­die said, “I prob­a­bly make him too ner­vous.”

Like ev­ery other lov­ing par­ent, Vic­tor is proud of what his son has achieved: “Taichi has be­come very dis­ci­plined thanks to golf. He is a focused young man.” Vic­tor also cred­its Mark Mos­sip, who has been coach­ing Taichi for seven years.

Just as our in­ter­view ended on a sunny Sun­day morn­ing, Vic­tor picked up his clubs and went to the driv­ing range with Taichi.
