In the 2018 Guangdong Junior Golf Open Foshan Open Qualifier, Huang Jiapei won the trophy again in the U18 group by 210 strokes, and also the qualification of Foshan Open, one of the key events of the European Challenge Tour. Another highlight of the event is 3 hole-in-one in the 3-round competition.
Let’s listen to the voices of these players and find out the story behind the scene.
The first words from the 17-year-old junior champion Huang Jiapei about his second victory were "I’m very happy!", with his eyes smiling.
Carded impressive 16 birdies over three rounds, the boy still took his miss to heart as he made one chip and three putts at a hole. Speaking of the upcoming Foshan Open, he said, “I was too nervous last year and failed to pass into the money list. I hope to play better this year!”
Dreaming of becoming a top golfer in the world, he sees Foshan Open as an important event on his road to success. “I look forward to the big game this October, when I can learn a lot from the European Challenge Tour players about reading greens, putting improvement and emotional management.
This is the first time for the 9-year-old girl to play at the Foshan Golf Club and harvest her first Hole-in-One. Led by her mother, Xu Ying started her golf journey when she was 7. “Golf is a sport of a lifetime and it is friendly for both juniors and the elderly. ”said the little lady.
In fact, Xu Ying was sick in the morning of the first round, which worried her parents a lot. However, with efforts and perseverance, she led all the way and finally championed women’s group U11.
Another player hit a hole-in-one at the first round is Jin Daoxian, who was introduced to golf at 6 years old by her father and this is actually her second hole-in-one. “Golf is full of challenge and fun,” grinned the sweet girl. Because of the Guangdong Junior Golf Open, she’s not a stranger to the Foshan Golf Club. “I really like the service here. It’s always good.”
After shot a hole-in-one at the final round, the young boy Huang Qifeng couldn’t hide his happiness: “Thank the Guangdong Golf Association for hosting this great event and this is a very challenging course at the Foshan Golf Club. Very happy to get the dream hole-in-one and guess I’ll never forget the day!”
Congratulations to the players and wish them better performance in the future!
