Is­abella Le­ung fin­ished as the high­est ranked Hong Kong player in the in­au­gu­ral Women’s Am­a­teur Asia Pa­cific Cham­pi­onship.

“I am very proud, be­cause it is such a pres­ti­gious event and I’m very happy to be here rep­re­sent­ing Hong Kong. My ini­tial goal was get­ting into Top 20. And I did! I’m pretty happy with my per­for­mance this week. First day wasn’t so good but I im­proved ev­ery round,” said Le­ung, who tied at 22nd on six over par.

The orig­i­nal field started with 83 play­ers rep­re­sent­ing 18 na­tions, with 48 aged 18 or un­der, and 53 made the half­way cut. Hong Kong ad four play­ers in the tour­na­ment. Le­ung and Chloe Chan both made the cut af­ter 36 holes.

“I’m re­ally happy to have made the cut, as that was my tar­get com­ing into this tour­na­ment. I feel like I could have played much bet­ter in my 3rd and 4th round. I didn’t play well the last 2 days, and hope­fully next year, I can play bet­ter and get Top 20,” said

Chan, who fin­ished tied 47th.
