The fourth Omega PGA Championships kicked off with a pro-am tournament at the Clearwater Bay Golf and Country Club where a host of celebrities teed off alongside seasoned professional golfers.

The next four days saw golf fans turning up to watch their favourite player as well as viewing 'The Noel Hunt Golf Show', an entertaining one-man presentation featuring the former golf professional and his antics on the green.

On Sunday, the finals witnessed Korean Kang Wook-soon taking the trophy and, of course, some US$80,000 (HK$618,720) that made up the top prize money.

Taking part were Simon Yam (far left), Sally Yeh, Simon Yates and Lawrence Ng (top left), Kevin Rollenhagen, Venanzio Ciampa and Michael Wong (bottom left), and George Lam.
