PETALING JAYA, June 13 — The Selangor International Junior Golf Championship 2024, which kicks off tomorrow, will see 123 players competing at the Seri Selangor Golf Club.

State Secretary Datuk Haris Kasim said the tournament, which runs until Saturday (June 15), features young players from the ages of 12 to 18 from 12 countries competing in individual and team categories for both boys and girls.

It will also see some of Malaysia’s best young players in action, including those from the Malaysian Golf Association, the Selangor Malaysia Games (Sukma) team, UUM International School Melaka (UUMISM), the PKNS Golf Academy, and SportExcel.

“Competing with peers from other countries allows them to assess their performance and identify areas for improvement,” he said during the team introduction event at the club yesterday night.

The players hail from various countries, including South Korea, China, India, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia, Bangladesh, Taiwan, and the United Arab Emirates.

The champion of the boys’ individual category will be able to participate in the PKNS Selangor Masters 2024 from June 19 to June 22 at the same venue, which is an important platform for young golfers to gain experience in competing in professional tournaments.

Previously, Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said the Selangor International Junior Golf Championship serves as a platform to unearth new talent in the sport.

He said both it and the PKNS Selangor Masters are aligned with the state’s commitment to developing golf and providing a platform for professional players, especially participants from Malaysia, to advance their careers in the sport.
