Shawn Lu Qualifies for 2016 Sony Open in Hawaii!

2015 Governor's Cup Amateur Team Qualifier for 2016 Sony Open in Hawaii-- Waialae Country Club , November 23, 2015.

11.23.2015-- Heavy rain and extremely wet conditions from the past 3 days made the course at Waialae Country Club play extremely long for HSGA's special 2016 Sony Open Qualifier for the 2015 Governor’s Cup Amateur team.

It was a down to the wire finish as there were 5 players within a few shots of each other after 15 holes. 4 of the players parred the par 3 16th and thereafter is where Moanalua High School’s Shawn Lu finished strong and “turned up the heat.”  He birdied the 17th hole and had an opportunity on the par 5 18th hole for an eagle, but safely 2-putted for a birdie 4.  That put Shawn at 4-under par, our low qualifier for the day and an opportunity to play in next year’s 2016 Sony Open in Hawaii PGA Tour event at Waialae Country Club. Pictured above Shawn Lu (left) and Governor’s Cup Amateur team captain Guy Yamamoto (right).

HSGA would like to thank the Sony Open Commission for giving them this special exemption for their top amateur qualifier to play in a PGA Tour event in which they can measure their golf game against some of the top golfers in the world. HSGA would also like to thank the members and staff of Waialae Country Club for allowing them to host this event at their wonderful private country club on Oahu.

Professional Team Wins Back Governor's Cup by Score of 15.5 to 8.5!

43rd  Annual Governor John A. Burns Challenge Cup-- Mid Pacific Country Club, November 16-17, 2015.

11.17.2015-- The third format of play for the 43rd Governor John A. Burns Challenge Cup was held today at beautiful Mid Pacific Country Club in Lanikai, Hawaii on Oahu. There were 12 Singles matches today which had each player of each team battling it out for a valuable team point.

The Professional Team has won back the Challenge Cup!  Yes, they have ended the record 8 year win streak from the Amateur team and made a statement doing it with a final score of 15.5 points to 8.5 points.

The 24 players today had 78 birdies and 2 eagles today which exemplifies the quality of golf played and that was done without ½ of the matches reaching the 18th hole.  Awesome job guys!

This brings the overall record of this historic event to 24 wins for the Professionals, 18 wins for the amateurs and 1 tie.

11.16.2015-- Beautiful weather embraced the 43rd Governor John A. Burns Challenge Cup today at Mid Pacific Country Club for the tournament’s 1st and 2nd rounds of matches: Four-Ball Match play for the morning session and Foursomes (aka alternate shot) for the afternoon matches.

The Professional team came out strong for the morning Four-Ball matches and took a commanding 4.5 to 1.5 point lead.  Four of the matches were decided on the 18th hole exemplifying how close the matches were. In the afternoon foursome matches, the Professionals and Amateurs halved the available points for a 3pts to 3pts session.

The Professional two-person teams of Juan Rodriguez PGA/Ryan Acosta, Jake Grodzinsky/Kyle Hayashi, John Hearn PGA/Nainoa Calip all had a great day winning both of their matches for the day and go into tomorrow’s matches with a 2-0-0 record. The Amateur two person team of Andrew Chin/Jun Ho Won also has a record of 2-0-0, while the Shawn Lu/Kengo Aoshima duo is also undefeated with a 1-0-1 record.

At the end of the day, the Professional team is leading 7.5 to 4.5 points and is in good position to bring the amateur’s current win streak of 8 yrs. in a row to a screeching halt.  The Professional team will need 12 ½ points to take back the cup and therefore need only to win 5 of the available 12 matches, while the amateur team will need to rally and win at least 7.5 points to retain the cup.

This Hilton Grand Vacations sponsored event, presented by the Hawaii State Junior Golf Association (HSJGA) brings together 32 of the best young players from Hawaii (USA) and Japan (10 boys and 6 girls on each team), in a Ryder Cup-style tournament designed to foster good will between young golfers, ages 13-18 from both organizations.  The vision of this international event started 9 years ago when Mark Wang, President of Hilton Grand Vacations, a division of Hilton Worldwide presented the idea to the HSJGA.
