SHENZHEN, 8 Jan 2018, (HK Golfer News Wire) - This trio of major tournaments offers not only valuable World Amateur Golf Ranking (WAGR) points but also the chance for young golfers to compete overseas in the company of three of the greats of the game.
Also, the World Stars of Junior Golf Championship (April 6-8) returns after a successful launch in 2017 while the Mission Hills Junior Series enters its 9th year, climaxing with the Grand Final on November 16-18 – two more events with WAGR status. The first leg of both the Mission Hills Junior Series and the par-3 Academy Series tee-off this month.
“We are grateful to our Olympic ambassadors Jack Nicklaus and Annika Sorenstam, and Sir Nick Faldo, who have allowed us to create such a strong international platform for China’s junior golfers”, said Tenniel Chu, Group Vice-Chairman of Mission Hills. “With further support from the China Golf Association, The R&A and the United States Golf Association, players such as Li Haotong, Jin Cheng and Guan Tianlang have been part of a breed of rising Chinese stars to have played more than 100,000 competitive rounds at Mission Hills.”
