Cheung Takes Top Amateur
Matthew Cheung’s final score of 13 over par in the HONMA Hong Kong Open doesn’t tell the full story of his overall performance. He produced some sublime golf to ensure he was the only Hong Kong player and the only amateur to make the cut in the national professional open. He did that with rounds of 71 and 70 on the opening two days to enter the weekend one over par.
After missing the cut in his Open debut last year, Cheung was just happy to be playing the tournament again after winning the local qualifier last month. He is priming himself for the PGA Tour of Australasia’s qualifying school in early December and will also attempt to qualify for the Asian Tour.
