Europe Win APGC Junior Championship

Sakke Siltala, Finland, and Caitlin Whitehead, England have triumphed in the Asia-Pacific Junior Championship in Hong Kong.

The duo, accompanied by non-playing captain, Jennifer Henderson, carded individual rounds of six-under-par 64 (Caitlin) and one-under-par 69 (Sakke) on day one to open up a seven-shot lead.

The scores also earned them the individual prizes for being the lowest boys and girls scores of the tournament.

In the foursomes on day two, the pair maintained their lead with a steady one-under-par 69 while in the final day four balls, Sakke made nine birdies to help Europe Team 1 to a nine-under-par 61 and an eight-shot victory.

It is the first time a European Team has medalled in the APGC Junior Championship.

European Team 2, represented by Luc Breuer of Germany and Beth Coulter of Ireland, shot a final round 65 to finish tied for 12th.
