Congratulations to BISP Golf Academy student Mark Luangnitikul, who won the Thailand Golf Association (TGA) Junior Golf Ranking Event Class B Boys (for ages 13-15) category, held 19-20 September at the Rajjaparpha Golf Course in Surat Thani.
With an overall field of 100 golfers, aged from 7 to 17, the British International School, Phuket (BISP) student scored 1 under par over two rounds, carding 74 and 69, to win the year’s third ranking event. The fourth ranking event of 2015 takes place in Lopburi next week, and will be followed by the grand final in Hua Hin, only for the top-ranking golfers, later in the year.
Mark has now won the first three ranking events, and is confident of retaining his overall title in Hua Hin, where the players will compete over four rounds. Not only is he the defending champion, he has won the last three year’s titles, in 2014, 2013 and 2012.
Earlier this year, Mark placed third at the US Kids Golf Teen World Championship 2015, held at the legendary Pinehurst course in the United States, where more than 500 of the game’s top teenagers from 34 countries competed.
