TEAM HAWAII DECLARED CHAMPIONS AT 42ND JUNIOR AMERICA’S CUP

 

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

SAWADA CAPTURES PRINCE INVITATIONAL

“Magnificent by Nature” is what The Prince Course at Princeville is known for on Kauai. The beauty of the course will test every golfer’s skills to their limits both physical and mental.

 In its fourth year the Prince Invitational wrapped up this afternoon with Jared Sawada capturing the championship title. Sawada now has two of the tournament titles, first as an amateur in 2012 and now as a professional. Posting a 2-day total of (142) Sawada’s 2-under par finish allowed him to slide past Alex Chiarella (a) by one stroke for the win. Professional Jake Grodzinsky would finish third at (145) with past champion TJ Kua two shots back at (147) to round out the top finishers of the Men’s Open.

 In the overall Championship flight Chiarella’s score of (143) would give him a five shot swing over Dalen Yamauchi who finished at (148). Alika Bell and James Horton would finish tied for 3rd at (150).  

 In A-Flight Steve Mickle won the division with a 2-day (85-80=165) and Andy Lozano finished 2nd at (81-88=169). Dayron Vargas had a tight competition going in B-Flight with David Gerow but would end up winning to beat Gerow by a one stroke swing to finish at (179).

 On behalf of the tournament committee, we would like to thank our sponsors for helping support this year’s event.
