If you see Mary Bea Porter-King and Rachel Kyono together under one tent, then you know for sure that it’s a junior golf event.
The Hawai’i State Jr. Golf Association’s (HSJGA) Jr. Tour Series continued this past weekend at the Puakea Golf Course.
There were three tournaments over the two day period: An 18-hole event was held on Saturday and a separate 18-hole competition was held on Sunday.
The two individual tournaments were combined into a 36-hole tournament. Winners in all three events will be invited to participate in the 2005 HSJGA Tournament of Champions to be held at Wailea on December 10-11.
Top Kaua’i performers included Reyn Morioka of Lihu’e, who took the 36-hole boys 10-and-under title with a 168, Sean Ogawa of Kapa’a (2nd-place boys 15-18 with a 149), Kellen Watabu of Kapa’a (3rd-place boys 15-18 with a 150), and Miki Ueoka of Lihu’e, who shot a 158, which was good enough for 3rd-place in the girls’ 15-18 division.
Kaua’i golfers who finished in the top three in the 18-hole contests were Morioka, Rae-Lyn Morikawa, Noel Torres, Mike Garcia, Watabu, Kelli Oride, Ueoka, Wiley Yoshioka, and Ogawa.
