Shinichi Mizuno will become the first ever golfer to represent Hong Kong in the prestigious Sir Michael Bonallack Trophy following his selection for the Asia-Pacific team against Europe in India next month.

The trophy pits 12 of the best amateur golfers from each region in a Ryder-Cup style format at the Karnataka Golf Association course in Bangalore from March 26-28.

“I am thrilled to be selected and to represent Hong Kong for the first time in the Bonallack Trophy. To play alongside and against the best amateur golfers from Europe and Asia-Pacific will be a great learning experience,” Mizuno said.

In another first for Hong Kong, long-time national coach Brad Schadewitz has been appointed vice-captain of the team. “To have Brad there in the team room will make it extra special,” Mizuno said.
