In June 2017, Lisa was very proud to have been selected as a Coach to represent the Australian Girls Team, along with Dean Kinney Coach/Manager. The talented young Australian team included Grace Kim, Stephanie Kyriacou and Isabelle Taylor and it was an amazing experience!
The 2017 Toyota Junior Golf World Cup was played at Chukyo Golf Club in Nagoya, Japan. It's the only junior golf championship in the world – 24 international teams qualified to participate and over 65 different national teams competed in six continents in order to compete for the honour as world champion. Our team did very well – Australia finished tied third with Italy. (The USA came first, Japan second.)
The organisation of this event was very impressive; from the coordination of players, managers and coaches to transport, accommodation and meals. The Tournament events ran like clockwork and our girls were wonderful representatives of Australia.
The highlight of the trip has to be finishing with a medal in third place! Meeting the managers, coaches and players from all around the world was pretty awesome, too.
