21 May 2015:  It wasn't the day they had been hoping for but Hong Kong are in line to record their best ever finish at the Queen Sirikit Cup – the Asia-Pacific Amateur Ladies Golf Team Championship – after ending the penultimate round at Fanling in a tie for second place, nine shots behind runaway leaders Korea.

22 May 2015:  Korea won their eighth Queen Sirikit Cup title in nine years, while Hong Kong narrowly missed out on a podium place on the final day of the Asia-Pacific Ladies Golf Team Championship at Hong Kong Golf Club in Fanling.

The hosts, represented by Tiffany Chan Tsz-ching, Isabella Leung Hei-nam and Kitty Tam Yik-ching, started the day with a one-shot advantage at the top of the leader board but struggled in the blustery conditions, adding a combined score of 151 over the New Course to lie alongside Japan and the Philippines on two-over-par.

The hosts, who had grabbed the lead after round one before slipping into a tie for second on day two, could only compile a seven-over 151 over the New Course to end the tournament in sixth spot, their best placing since 1991.

"I honestly thought we could have done better," said the in-form Chan, whose 75 was the team's lowest round of the day.  "It was windy out there and some of the other teams played really well, but I like to think we can still come up with a top-three finish.

The team, which comprised reigning World University Championship winner Tiffany Chan Tsz-ching, Isabella Leung Hei-nam and Kitty Tam Yik-ching, finished on a three-day total of nine-over 441 – Hong Kong's lowest in the tournament's 37-year history – as Korea (422) surged to a convincing victory.

"The plan is to play smart over the tougher opening holes and look for birdies on the back nine.  Golf changes every day and it could be our turn to do well again tomorrow."

The Philippines finished second on 436, while New Zealand rallied late to take third spot on 437.

Hong Kong's best result in the 37-year history of the event is third, a position they achieved in 1986.

Korea's Park Hyun-kyung was the standout performer during the week. Her seven-under total earned her the individual title.

Hong Kong national coach Brad Schadewitz added: "The wind was a huge factor and the course played long, so I'm very impressed with some of the scores out there.

Despite finishing just shy, Hong Kong national coach Brad Schadewitz was quick to heap praise on his young team: "It's disappointing when so few strokes separated so many teams – we were so close.  The players didn't play poorly, they just didn't get anything going out there.

"If it's dry and the team can get it going early by holing a few putts then anything can happen.  Hopefully the girls' experience on this golf course will come through."

"In this era where players from Asia-Pacific are the up-and-coming stars of the game, for Hong Kong to be in the mix this week was exciting.  To take the early lead was a special feeling – it made the team feel like they belonged."

Korea lived up to their billing as pre-tournament favourites with a fine team display.  Park Hyun-kyung, Jang Eun-soo and Lee Joung-eun – who also occupy the top three places in the individual standings – combined for a three-under 141 and are well on course to claim their eighth Queen Sirikit Cup title in the last nine years.

In-form Chan, who successfully defended her NJCAA National Championship last week in Arizona, said that Hong Kong can look forward to contending in the tournament for years to come.

Team Results:281 – Korea (140,141); 290 – Japan (148, 142), Philippines (147, 143), Hong Kong (139, 151); 291 – Australia (147, 144); 294 – Thailand (144, 150); 295 – Indonesia (146, 149); 296 – New Zealand (145, 151); 298 – Chinese Taipei (152, 146), China (148, 150), India (147, 151); 302 – Malaysia (148, 154); 303 – Singapore (156, 147)

"We had the home course advantage but we definitely didn't take that advantage today," said Chan, who placed seventh in the individual standings.  "It's a pity after such a great start to the tournament but we have made a lot of progress as a side.

Individual Results:140 – Park Hyun-kyung (Korea – 70, 70); 141 – Jang Eun-soo (Korea – 70, 71), Lee Joung-eun (Korea – 70,71); 142 – Minami Hiruta (Japan – 75,67), Mary Princess Superal (Philippines – 73,69); 144 – Hannah Green (Australia – 73,71); 145 – Tiffany Chan (Hong Kong – 70, 75), Isabella Leung (69, 76); 146 – Keh Wenyung (New Zealand – 72, 74)

"In the years before we didn't think we could really compete with the other teams.  But right now, I don't feel like there's much difference between us all.  I think Hong Kong is only going to get better."
