Ace Performance From Youngsters

image003Hong Kong: Hong Kong’s next generation of golfing stars were on parade in the EFG Bank Junior Tour Grand Final.
Eleven-year-old Stephanie Wong Lok-yin fired the lowest round of the day with a one-over-par 59 while Yuka Murakami celebrated her second hole-in-one in a week at the Hong Kong Golf Club’s Deepwater Bay course.
Wong clinched the Girls’ 11-12 Division while 14-year-old Charles Chung (Boys’ 13-14) was the leading boy on 61.
Murakami won the Girls’ 13-14s with the best possible start: a hole-in-one on her opening tee shot. Incredibly, it was the 14-year-old’s second ace in a week, having holed out at Kau Sai Chau a few days earlier, and the third ace of her young career following a hole-in-one at Fanling last summer.
Albert Chiu, Chief Executive of EFG Bank in the Asia Pacific region, said: “The number of entries for this year’s Junior Tour has been higher than ever and the quality of golf in the Grand Final was the best yet. EFG Bank is proud to have contributed to the growth of golf in Hong Kong since we teamed up with the Hong Kong Golf Association six years ago.”
The Grand Final was the climax to the Hong Kong Golf Association’s season-long EFG Bank Junior Tour which featured 18 tournaments for hundreds of young golfers aged between six and 14 at venues including SkyCity Nine Eagles Golf Club, the Executive Nine Course at Clearwater Bay Golf and Country Club and Deep Water Bay.
