Feng Shanshan Praises HKGC's Role in Developing Golf
Feng Shanshan, LPGA Tour star and China’s first Major winner, stopped by the Hong Kong Golf Club on her way to participate in the Kia Classic in the US and enjoyed a round at Fanling with some old friends.
28-year-old Feng was last at Fanling during her junior amateur days and said: “It felt great to be back at Fanling after 14 years! The fairways and greens have not only challenged many world-class golfers, but they are also beautiful and steeped in history. Becoming the world no. 1 is any professional golfer’s dream. However, it is not an easy journey for someone like me who comes from an ordinary family. It would not have been possible without a lot of support from the Government, China Golf Association, and many other parties.
“Many organisations in Hong Kong are also making great efforts to support golf players - including the HKGC, which launched the HK Ladies Open in 2015. The tournament is a milestone in the development of golf in HK and provides a platform for the many talented Asian women golfers to compete and enhance their skills. I have been lucky enough to achieve my dream of becoming a professional golfer, and I hope that more young talents will be inspired by my story. I am sure the support from the community will help the sport to become more popular. So that more people have the opportunity to enjoy and excel in it.”
