BGGA’s Siyan Chen Claims Title at Sea Pines Junior Heritage

Bishops Gate Golf Academy student Siyan Chen won the Girls Division at the Sea Pines Junior Heritage on Sunday, February 4, 2018 at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head Island, S.C.

Chen, a junior at BGGA from China, posted a first-round 3-under 69. Little did Chen know that the final round would be canceled due to weather and course conditions and that she would be named the winner based on first-round scores.

During the first round Chen recorded six birdies and three bogeys to lead the Girls Division by six strokes.

In the Boys Division, BGGA’s Dongjin Park and Hiroshi Tai finished T3 by scoring 1-over 73 during the first round.

Also competing this weekend was BGGA’s Cynthia Tu who finished T5 in the IMG Junior Golf Tour event at Rio Pinar Country Club in Orlando, Fla. Tu used rounds of 76 and 74 for a 6-over 150 finish.

BGGA students will use this week of golf training to prepare for upcoming junior golf tournaments.
