Albert Chiu, Chief Executive of EFG Bank in Asia Pacific commented: “It is great to see so many talented golfers here, many of whom have been part of the HKGA EFG Bank Junior Development Programme since we formed the partnership five years ago. EFG Bank congratulates the 2013 Junior Order of Merit winners and we are excited to confirm that once again we will be granting a scholarship to one of the talented young golfers through the EFG Bank Young Golfers Foundation.”

Ranging from eight-year-olds playing in a nine-hole tournament for the first time, to 18-year-olds representing Hong Kong in the national junior teams, the HKGA’s Junior Development Programme has flourished over the past five years thanks to the support of EFG Bank.”
