A total of 120 golfers  battled for the top honors in the inaugural Marianas International Cup 2017 that will be held this weekend in two of Saipan’s challenging golf courses—Kingfisher Golf Links and the Laolao Bay Golf & Resort.

Thirty amateur golfers each from China, Japan, and South Korea played alongside the local  and began with a reception at the casino lobby of Imperial Pacific Resort.

Imperial Pacific International (CNMI) LLC Marketing and Public Affairs director David Largent said although there are no prominent amateur golfers competing, there are still a lot of good players from the three countries featured in the weekend event.

He added that it is the first international golf tournament that will be held on Saipan. “It is the first of its kind and is positioned being an annual event to continue to attract golf tourism. It would also promote marketing between the Marianas Visitors Authority tourism markets of China, Japan, and South Korea. So this year, will be a good start to do even more next year.”

 China’s Changfeng Liu brought with him a lucky charm to top the inaugural Marianas International Cup 2017.

 Liu was named the overall champion of the weekend competition held at the Kingfisher Golf Links and Laolao Bay Golf & Resort and was surprised with his victory as he and his mom, Lady Guo, came to Saipan just for a vacation and to celebrate her 72nd birthday yesterday.

 “It’s my mother’s birthday (today). I planned this trip as a birthday gift. I guess, I just got lucky or my mom turned out to be my lucky charm,” said Liu, still with a surprised smile on his face while his mother was grinning from ear to ear after receiving his prizes.

 The Shanghai native had a gross score of 89 at the Kingfisher Golf Links last Saturday and 92 on the east course of the Laolao Bay Golf & Resort in yesterday’s final round to rule the double peoria tournament. Liu, the Commodities Division regional manager and deputy regional manager of research and investing firm Trammo (Shanghai) Trading Co. Ltd., finished with net scores of 77 and 68 for a 145 total, beating more than 100 other golfers from China, Japan, Korea, and host the CNMI.

 Seung Woo Kang came in second, while Jae Yeol Joong was third in the CNMI bracket. The Top 3 finishers for China, Japan, and Korea were also recognized at the banquet with the champion earning a round-trip ticket to Saipan, $300, and a four-night stay at IPI’s Grand Ocean Suite aside from the trophy.

 Rong San Cui, Jin Nu Cai, and Kinping Cheng were the Top 3 winners from China, while Akira Ueda, Hiroyuki Kataoka, and Fumiyuki Takasuka duplicated the feat in the Japan bracket. Mun Yong Jung, Sukin Yang, and Kyung Rai Koh were the Korean podium finishers.

Eventual overall champion Changfeng Liu (No. 6, 2”), Sakuma Seiichi (No. 8, 3’ 6”), Kiyoko Okayasu (No. 12, 4’ 25”), and Seo Yeom Jeon (No. 15, 3’ 1”) were the closest to the pin winners at Kingfisher. Seiichi and Yunai Yamashita had the longest drive for the men’s and women’s.

Jong Bong Wong (No. 4), Myung Keun Jung (No. 6), Seung Woo Kang, and Shan Cui Rong made closest to the pin shots at Laolao, while Kang was also the longest drive winner in the men’s side and Yuko Togawa earned the ladies title.

 Meanwhile, former CNMI Legislature member and current Department of Lands and Natural Resources Secretary Anthony Benavente bested 15 other golfers to rule the sponsor’s tournament held at Laolao’s west course. Yong Joo Kim came in at second, while Prescil Azarcon finished third.

 

Benavente was also the closest to the pin winner at No. 13 at 39’ and 9”, while Azarcon matched it at No. 7 at 16’, aside from having the longest drive of 225 yards at No. 18. Absalon Waki Jr. (No. 3, 39”) and Takashi Ishikawa (No. 17, 14’ 5”) were the other closest to the pin winners.
