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
