Tournament History…..

The Hall of Fame tournament has been played at Kapalua since 1988 starting with GTE as the major sponsor before being bought by Hawaiian TELCOM and Verizon. The tournament was then sponsored by Visa for a few years and  now Visa has signed an agreement with Kapalua to be a “Proud Sponsor” of the resort allocating money to support the traditional Hall of Fame Championship and PRO-AM, and the Annual Food and Wine Festival at Kapalua. The history of the tournament draws players from throughout the state to participate. Because it is  a sanctioned event of the Aloha Section PGA, players must be PGA Class-A members (Professionals who have obtained membership from the PGA of America through their management program).

On behalf of the Aloha Section PGA Board of Directors it gives me great pleasure to share with all of you the exciting news of Team Hawaii’s victory last week at the 42nd Annual Junior America’s Cup in Vancouver, British Columbia – Canada.

PGA Professional Rick Castillo has been captain of Team Hawaii since 2006 and led the boys on their journey to Canada. The members of this year’s team were Kyle Suppa, Kyosuke Hara, Spencer Dunaway, and Shawn Lu. Shawn was the “rock” of the team posting 73-72-70 = 215 at Shaughness Golf and Country Club. Shawn’s 2-under par finish on the final round would give him a 3-stroke lead to capture the Sally Pini trophy for the individual championship. 

Attached is a picture of Team Hawaii at the awards ceremony. From left to right: Kyle Suppa, Spencer Dunaway, Shawn Lu, Kyosuke Hara and Captain Rick Castillo, PGA.

We would like to express our sincerest ‘Mahalo nui loa’ to Rick for his stewardship of Team Hawaii and encourage each of you to congratulate these men on their victory
