The South Island Under-19 Championships were completed today at the Cromwell Golf Club with Waikato’s Jordan Woodall and Canterbury’s Julianna Hung both winning in dominant fashion.

Hung carded rounds of 71, 70 and round of 77 in howling winds to still win by three strokes over fellow Cantabrian, Hillary O’Connor.

After multiple years representing Canterbury, this is a great win for Hung who keeps growing as a golfer. With a nervous finish to the front nine she bounced back with a birdie on the challenging tenth hole to get back on track and from there she was able to grind out an important win.

Other champions were Hiroki Miya was the Men's U17 title winner, Hayato Miya was Men's U15 champion and Juliana Hung was Women's U19 winner respectively, and also Amy Weng was Women's U15 Runner Up.
