Jen Goh of Singapore held off a strong challenge from local girl Vivian Lee to win the 2014 Hong Kong Ladies Open Amateur Championship at Hong Kong Golf Club in Fanling.

Holding a one-shot final-round lead over her Hong Kong opponent, 18-year-old Goh added a solid 73 to rounds of 71 and 76 to win by three.  Lee, 15, pressed hard but fell away with bogeys on the last two holes to tie for second with China’s Yin Yuan-Ru.

“I was missing greens and had to scramble all week so my main feeling is one of relief right now,” said the Singapore national player.  “I won my national Amateur Championship earlier this season but this is my first overseas victory so definitely the best moment of my career so far.”

Hong Kong’s Alice Karr claimed the Ladies Open Mid-Amateur Championship, also played on the New Course in Fanling, by a convincing eight shots.

Leading final scores: 220 – Jen Goh (SGP) 71 76 73; 223 – Yin Yuan-Ru (CHN) 76 73 74, Vivian Lee (HKG) 74 74 75; 229 – Tiana Lau (HKG) 79 78 72; 236 – Ashley Lau (MAL) 80 75 81; 237 – Emily Leung (HKG) 78 81 78; 241 – Queenie Lai (HKG) 77 81 83; 243 – Chloe Chan (HKG) 83 80 80; 244 – Tseng Kai Shiuan (TPE) 78 85 81; 249 – DeeDee Wong (HKG) 85 86 78
