Singapore: Indonesian Jonathan Wijono produced a classy display of front-running to claim the overall title in the fifth edition of the Mizuno-Laguna National Junior Championship.
With successive rounds of 69 to open up, Wijono set the Masters Course alight at Laguna National Golf and Country Club, a Golf Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
With a closing one-over-par 73, Wijono further extended his advantage at the top of the leaderboard in the event that attracted almost 70 entrants representing five countries.
His 54-hole aggregate of five-under 211 gave him a nine-stroke winning margin from Dane Ang with Justin Zuk Zheng Zhong a further stroke back in third.
In the Girls’ Division, Nicole Mok soared to victory. The Keppel Club member fired three sub-80 rounds for a total of 225.
That was six shots in front of Seletar Country Club’s Vanessa Khoo, who had the consolation of securing first place in the Girls’ ‘B’ Division.
Also topping their respective divisions were Dane Ang [Boys’ ‘A’ Division – 15-17]; Justin Kuk [Boys’ ‘B’ Division 12-14] and Jacqueline Tan [Girls’ ‘A’ Division 15-17].
The strength of the Indonesian challenge was underlined by the performance of Jose Emmanuel Suryadinata, who was first runner-up in the Boys’ ‘B’ Division. Like Wijono, Suryadinata’s home course is the Taman Dayu Golf Club & Resort in Surabaya.
Organised and hosted by Laguna National Golf and Country Club, the objective of the event is to provide elite junior golfers an opportunity to compete in a professionally-run environment.
Prizes were presented by Laguna National General Manager Bradley Leahey, Mizuno Singapore General Manager David Leow and Mizuno’s Regional Sales Manager Kaoru. Also in attendance were senior figures from Royal Sporting House and Golf House.
Leow said Mizuno continues to pride itself on its contribution to growing interest in the game around the region.
