SCHOOLBOY Roderick Staunton tees-off in the Asia-Pacific Junior Championship this morning aiming to enhance his reputation as one of the world's premier golfers in his age category. The 11-year-old Island School pupil won international acclaim last August with a record-breaking triumph in the Japan Cup World Junior Championship in Gifu. And Staunton hopes to add to his collection of silverware in Class C of the region's most important junior tournament which this year is being held at the New Korea Country Club. Also flying the Hong Kong flag in South Korea are Pierre Niles and Jason Kang, both aged 16. Niles, who also attends the Hong Kong International School, won the territory's Junior Championship last month, while KGV pupil Kang finished runner-up. Meanwhile, Hong Kong's senior international team continue their build-up to next week's Southeast Asian amateur championships for the Putra Trophy by competing in the Saujana Open in Malaysia. David Tonroe, Jason Kwok and Chan Yuen-hong will all compete in the 72-hole event before flying on to Indonesia for the Putra where they will be joined by Michael Grant. Tonroe and Kwok took part in last week's Malaysian Open amateur championship at Subang. Tonroe compiled a four-round aggregate of 301 (73-74-75-79) to finish tied for 11th - 15 strokes behind Singapore's Mardan Mamat who defeated Australian Jason Dawes on the first hole of a sudden-death play-off - while Kwok ended in 20th place on 305 (78-74-74-79). The best-placed Hong Kong player was national champion Michael Long in 10th position on 299 (76-77-73-73). Long is ineligible for the Putra Cup team.
