South Korea's Kim Do-hoon underlined his status as one of Asia's most promising young talents with an emphatic nine-stroke victory at the 2005 MacGregor Hong Kong Open Junior Championship at Fanling yesterday. The 16-year-old, who carded a spectacular six-under par 64 in round one, signed off with a steady 71 for a two-day total of 135 to finish ahead of Hong Kong's Jimmy Ko Ming-chak in second and Taiwan's Chang Kung-chih in third. a delighted Kim said it was his consistency from the tee that paved the way for his triumph. 'I drove the ball so well these past two days. I had been struggling with my driver before I arrived in Hong Kong so it's really satisfying to come away with the win. I certainly hope to return next year to defend my title,' he said. In the overall girls' event, overnight leader Wannasiri Sirisampant from Thailand held off China's Zhou Xiaoxuan for a slim one-stroke victory. Hong Kong's Ginger Mak finished third two shots adrift of the winner. Local celebrations were saved for 12-year-old Steven Lam Tsz-fung who dominated the boys 11-12 category, finishing six-strokes ahead of his nearest rival. Starting the final round with a one-shot lead, Lam carded a steady 74 and eased to a comfortable win. Hong Kong's Kitty Tam Yik-ching gave the home fans more to cheer following her two-stroke triumph in the girls eight-and-under category. National junior coach Brad Schadewitz said that his young players did well considering the strength of the international field but added that he hoped to see an overall improvement before Hong Kong hosts the 2007 Asia Pacific Junior Championship.
