Students in the BISP Sea Eagles Golf Academy have had a busy start to the school year, competing in several local and regional tournaments throughout August and September.
At the TGA event at Blue Canyon in early August, new Sea Eagle Louise made a great start for BISP, winning her age group by 14 shots. Pasoot (IT) was the second runner up in the C boys class and Sebastian was the second runner up in A boys – a great effort considering he wasn’t able to train leading up the event due to Military Service.
Once Term 1 was underway, Coach Ollie and Coach Nick took the players through fitness assessments and 3D biomechanic reviews.
In late August, IT travelled to Lamphun for the Thailand Junior Development Tour, where he came second runner up in the C boys class.
In mid-September, many of our golfers competed at the TGA Singha Junior Golf Tour at the Katathong Golf Resort and Spa in Phang Nga. Despite tough conditions in the rain and a difficult course set up, the players performed well, with Louise coming in 1st place, winning by 4 shots, and IT finishing runner up in a very competitive class CB by just one shot.
Sebastian came in 4th place in another very competitive division, class AB. After a poor front nine, he shot 33 (-3) on the back nine to fight back to a good result. After his military training break, Sebastian is coming back into form.
And last weekend, several of our players lined up once again, this time in the TJDT (Thai Junior Development Tour) at North Hill Golf Club in Chiang Mai. IT produced another amazing performance, finishing 2nd overall. His first round of -1 was his best competitive score yet.
Players are now looking ahead to the TGA Singha Junior Golf Ranking tournament in Kanchanaburi. Well done to all our Sea Eagle golfers.
