Napat “Toy” Paramacharoenroj claimed victory in the World Stars of Junior Golf 2016 tournament (Boys 13-14 category).

Napat “Toy” Paramacharoenroj claimed victory in the World Stars of Junior Golf 2016 tournament (Boys 13-14 category) held in in Las Vegas, United States from July 17-21 by a remarkable 9 strokes from his nearest challenger.

The World Stars of Junior Golf is a premier world junior golf tournament. Their mission is to provide junior boys and girls of all ages with the most competitive field and the ultimate tournament experience. This professionally operated event by PGA golf professionals, PGA apprentices and volunteers makes this a must play for all juniors.

Toy posted scores of 69 (3 under par), 69 (-3), and 64 (-8), which gave him a three round total of 202, or 14 under par.

Meanwhile, Vanchai “Mark” Luangnitikul took fifth place at the Golf Teen World Championship 2016, held July 28-30 at the famous Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina, United States, heralded as the “cradle of American golf”.

British International School, Phuket

Run by the US Kids Golf Foundation, the 2016 US Kids Golf Teen World Championship showcased over 600 players from more than 40 nations – including countries as diverse as Indonesia, New Zealand, Zimbabwe and Thailand. Now in its 11th year, the Teen World Championship serves as an aspirational goal for teenage golfers across the world.

With a three round total of 216, Mark tied for fifth place, a strong performance following a string of impressive results in national and international golf tournaments over the last year, and intensive training under BISP Golf Academy Head Coach Oliver Bates at the new BISP Golf Centre, which was opened by Sir Nick Faldo on March 10.

Before the Teen World Championship 2016, Mark competed at the July 18-21 Enagic Junior Championship, run by the American Junior Golf Association, where he scored 207 over three rounds, to come second.
