Year 8 student Pasoot (I.T) Luengcharoenwatana and Namo Luangnitikul from Year 7 both qualified for the event at last month’s TGA finals and Junior World qualifier at Nakon Nayok.

Year 7 student Louise Landgraf qualified several weeks previous via another ranking and qualification process.

In the Under 13 girls division at the TGA finals, Namo delivered an amazing performance, shooting –9 for three rounds and winning the event by three shots. Included in her win was a hole in one on hole three from 147 yards.

Namo qualified for the Junior World Championships ranked number one in the Under 13 girls age group in Thailand.

In the Under 13 boys division, I.T finished strongly to qualify in third place. After a slow start, he fought back well to shoot –2 for the last two rounds to qualify.

Last month, both Namo and I.T also competed in the Thailand Junior Development Tour Grand Masters and produced some outstanding results.

Held at the championship Alpine Golf Club in Bangkok, this was the grand final for the junior tour competed over three rounds.

In the boy’s class division, following a first round of 65 (–7), I.T went on to win by eight shots. In the girl’s class, following a first round of 67 (–5), Namo went on to win by nine shots.

“I’m extremely proud of the success of our golfers – they have been working so hard, especially on the mental side, for big events,” said BISP Sea Eagles Golf Academy coach Oliver Bates.

“In Bangkok recently, Namo and I.T didn’t just win, they destroyed the course and the rest of the field.

“Louise also continues to improve and impress and it’s great to see these golfers inspiring othery oung people to take up and enjoy golf.”

Congratulations to all the golf students on their recent efforts and achievements.
