Golfer Chen Xingtong (Secondary 2) won the HSBC Youth Golf Challenge 2nd Leg by a landslide! She lapped the field at the HSBC Youth Golf Challenge (YGC) 2nd Leg held at Warren Golf and Country Club between 15 to 17 March 2022, by recording an overall score of -2 to prevail over her nearest competitor in the HSBC YGC Girls ‘B’ Division by 11 strokes. She also performed 4 shots over the best score in Girls ‘A’ Division over the three-day event. This is her second win at the HSBC YGC leg.

Meanwhile, Denise Ng Wan Xuan (Secondary 3) finished in 8th position in Girls 'B' division with an aggregate score of 239 while Irvyn Tan (Diploma in Business, Year 1) finished 4th with an aggregate score of 225 in the Boys ‘A’ Division.

Denise later took part in the Laguna Amateur Series from 21 to 22 March with her elder sister Jaymie Ng Wan Xin (IBDP Year 5). Denise was placed 4th on the table, while her sister was crowned as the champion. With the local competition experience in hand, Denise and Xingtong took off to the Thailand Junior Development Tour Final Master Championship from 23 to 27 March. Their performance against international junior golfers was creditable. Xingtong finished 9th position (20 over par), and Denise ended her March competition action in 11th place (28 over par).

Earlier in the month, her sister Jaymie also participated in the Riversdale Cup, together with Justin Kuk Zheng Zhong (Extended Diploma in Sport and Leisure Management) in Melbourne from 7 to 14 March. The Riversdale Cup is the second oldest golf championship in Australia. Both Jaymie and Justin earned their selection by performing well in both local and international competitions. Jaymie and Justin finished 16th and 55th among international golfers respectively.

Justin also participated in the South Australian Amateur Classic and Rene Erichsen Salverto from 22 to 25 March. He currently is continuing to hit his strokes at the Australian Amateur Championship. The Championship is from 28 March to 1 April.

Justin is grateful for his month-long experience in Australia. He said, “Being able to compete in the cold weather, firm greens, and amidst a high level of competition, made it good practice for me to get ready for the upcoming SEA Games 2021 in Hanoi. Playing in layers of clothing made it feel different when playing on course and the unpredictable weather in Melbourne made me adapt to situations. I am thankful that the extended polytechnic programme in Singapore Sports School appropriately supports me in what is a crucial stage of my sporting career.”
