Stephanie Ho Claims Esprit Ladies Open Amateur Title

Posted: Monday, 29 Jul 2019

Stephanie Ho, the top amateur golfer turned pop singer, beat a strong field of amateur golfers from Hong Kong and across the region to clinch the Esprit Hong Kong Ladies Open Amateur Championship title at the Clearwater Bay Golf and Country Club in July.

The Esprit Hong Kong Ladies Open Amateur Championship saw Mimi Ho, fresh from her victory at the Vietnam Ladies Amateur Open Championship a week earlier, sharing the lead with Stephanie Ho after the first two rounds. Both players had the same score (73-72) at a total of 145. The weather and course conditions during the first round were significant challenges for the whole field with heavy showers and thunderstorm in the afternoon.

The co-leaders started the final round with a 5-stroke cushion over Vanessa Bouvet from France and Hong Kong’s Queenie Lai. Stephanie Ho finished with a brilliant 69 under the hot and humid condition to claim the title, her second trophy after winning the Hong Kong Ladies Close Amateur Championship at the beginning of 2018. Bouvet’s 68 was the best score of the final round, and she finished second overall with a total of 218. Mimi Ho unfortunately lost her touch and finished third with a final round 76.

Stephanie Ho topped an international field that included more than 77 amateur golfers from 7 different countries. By winning the national Ladies Open Amateur Championship, Ho will receive an exemption from the Hong Kong Golf Club into next year’s EFG Hong Kong Ladies Open to take on the professionals.

Ho also won the Open Mid-Amateur Championship Division 1 title for players aged over 25, while Hong Kong’s Nammy Dun was the Division 2 champion.
