Wan Ju Lee and his sister Ye Ji walked away with the men’s and women’s Championship trophies at the Sagicor-St Andrews Golf Club Invitational held on the weekend. The annual event, in its 18th year under the Sagicor brand, saw 98 participants take to the greens.

Participants were grouped in flights based on their handicap and age, and competed against golfers of equal skill level. The tournament had seven flights play 36 holes as individual stroke play: Men’s Championship; 1st Flight; 2nd Flight; 3rd Flight; Seniors 1st Flight 50-plus; Super Seniors 60-plus; and Women's Championship.

The top finishing golfers have been awarded points, based on their performance, towards selection for the national golf team.

Wan Ju, this year’s winner with a record low score, claimed victory in the Championship Flight with scores 71, 69 a total of four under the golf course par. Wan Ju has represented T&T on both the junior and senior national teams. He continues to show much improvement every time he returns from Coker University in South Carolina, where he plays on their division II golf team.

In the women's category, Ye Ji, last year's champion, has maintained her number one ranking in T&T over the last year among the local golfers competing.

Ye Ji reclaimed the title after shooting 76, 75 which is four shots better than her winning score last year. Ye Ji, 14, has represented T&T on both the junior and senior national teams as well. Her future looks promising as she continues to improve as a high-performance women’s athlete.
