Yan­nick Ar­tigolle (left) shot an im­pres­sive 66 in the fi­nal round to win the Hong Kong Ju­nior Open Cham­pi­onship. His na­tional team­mate Taichi Kho (right) had a not so lucky day, card­ing a 72 in windy con­di­tions at the Clear­wa­ter Bay Golf and Coun­try Club.

When asked about his key to vic­tory, Ar­tigolle said: “I played against, in­stead of with, the wind to make the ball stay straighter.” Kho, de­spite los­ing the cham­pi­onship, showed re­spect to his good friend and com­manded the lat­ter’s per­for­mance.

Their bat­tle through­out the three-day tour­na­ment serves as a good re­minder to all ju­nior golfers that win­ning and los­ing are in­her­ent parts of the game. When the scores came in dur­ing the fi­nal round, our ed­i­tor over­heard a parent con­sole his child, “Some days you win, some days you lose. You can’t ex­pect to have ev­ery­thing go your way all the time.”
