Lo­cal golf fu­ture stars have been busy in the last De­cem­ber tak­ing part in ju­nior tour­na­ments staged by the HKGA.

The Win­ter Ju­nior Cham­pi­onship was the cli­max of such a bumper month and saw Cyrus Lee claim the over­all boys ti­tle over 36 holes at the Jockey Club Kau Sai Chau Pub­lic Golf Course (North Course). De­fend­ing cham­pion Taichi Kho fired a 70 on day two, which was the low­est score in the fi­nal round. But Kho (146) was still un­able to re­tain his ti­tle and lost to Lee (145) by a sin­gle stroke mar­gin. Hu Jing (153) de­fended her over­all girls cham­pion ti­tle, who de­feated 14-year-old Chloe Chan (154) in con­sec­u­tive year for just one stroke.

The HKGA-1 team re­tained the Dr. Ge­orge Choa Cup ti­tle again at the Hong Kong Golf Club, a two-day in­vi­ta­tional event for teams across Hong Kong and south­ern China. With strong per­for­mances by Jas­mine Kwan, Chris Mun, Yu Ka Jun and Alex Zhuo, the HKGA-1 team (455) de­feated the Shen­zhen Golf As­so­ci­a­tion team (474) by a huge mar­gin of 19 strokes. The Guang­dong Golf As­so­ci­a­tion team was in the third place with a to­tal of 475.

The Graphite De­sign Hong Kong Schools Holiday Com­pe­ti­tion saw boys and girls aged 12 and un­der in ac­tion at Hong Kong Golf Club’s Deep Wa­ter Bay nine-hole course. Leo Wong from Bud­dhist Chan Wing Kam Memo­rial School and Chlo­ris Li from St. Stephen’s Col­lege claimed the Boys and Girls 11-12 Gross ti­tle re­spec­tively.
