Back to where it all startedAn exciting PGI Bali Junior Golf Tournament Series Championship Cup was held on Sunday 25th September at New Kuta Golf.
New Kuta Golf was where we started with the Series 1 tournament so it was a fitting end to a wonderful series of golf for the juniors in Bali. The support of New Kuta Golf for the juniors was once again turned on.
During the 5 Series which lead up to the Championship Cup the junior players played at all 5 courses in Bali.
At times home course knowledge proved to be an advantage but with many of the juniors experiencing the courses for the very first time they still manage to showed just how quickly they adapted to the new surroundings.
Once again 48 junior players displayed great ethics by arriving early, following the rules and also having fun.
The Boys Championship Cup was decided by an exciting playoff with Ananda Pidada and Andrew Mulyadi tied for first place.
The two players headed back to hole 9 deciding on who would go first by an unconventional “dum dum sut” (rock paper scissors). Ananda tees off first followed by Andrew whose ball looks like its out of bounds so he hits a provisional ball. Ananda who is known to have the coolest head on the course putted for the win. In his victory speech he said “it was his lucky day today!”
There was a nerve racking wait for the mixed championship players Meva Schmit and Jose Massana as a computer glitch forced the tournament officials to recheck the scores manually.
Both player told to prepare for a possible playoff. Ten year old Meva, obviously exhausted, was emotional but within minutes one of the officials came out to declare Meva the winner therefore avoiding the playoff.
The girls champion Yeyen Safitri wins with an amazing score of 77.
The divisional tournament players all did well with a few players playing in their very first tournament.
The inaugural series championship cup also saw the presentation of The Kang Dharma Wijaya Players of the Year Trophies, awarded to players who met the criteria set by the Committee. These players were Andrew Mulyadi, Aldo Ryanata and Jose Massana.
