COOL customer Philip Taylor overcame a disastrous start to claim top prize in yesterday's Hongkong Junior Championship. The Sha Tin College student, a five-handicapper, suffered a potentially soul-destroying quadruple-bogey seven at the opening hole at the Shek O Country Club. However, 17-year-old Taylor displayed admirable composure to record three birdies and complete the remaining 17 holes in one-over-par. That gave him a round of five-over 70 and a five-stroke victory from Jason Kang in Group A for players aged between 15 and 17. The second best gross score of the day was returned by 10-year-old Roderick Staunton, although he was playing from the forward yellow tees. His round was made up of nine pars and nine bogeys and he won the 10-and-under category by no fewer than 37 shots - the same margin as last year. The prize for the best female went to Clearwater Bay Golf and Country Club member Hikaru Kitai. The Japanese-born 17-year-old, who has lived in Hongkong most of her life and attends KGV School, returned an impressive 79.
