Charles Stone landed his first MacGregor Hong Kong Close Amateur Championship in fine style yesterday at Fanling, romping to a six-shot victory over Steven Lam Tsz-fung. Oliver Roberts and Marcus Lam tied for third, a further shot adrift. 'All that practice paid off,' said Stone, 15, who carded a second successive round of 73. 'My game was solid, I felt comfortable out there for most of the day.' In the girls' division, 14-year-old Tiffany Chan Tsz-ching fired an impressive 74 to ease to a 10-stroke victory over 2007 champion Stephanie Ho Ngan-sze.
