Isabella Leung Finished Top 20 in the WAAP Championship
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.
