IT has been a fantastic year for Como Golf Academy with a number of victories to add to its books.

Captain Jordan Jung, Sylvester Tan and Alice Chang are set to represent Australia in the 10th annual Pacific School Games next week.

A flagship event of School Sport Australia, the Games provide opportunities for about 4000 students, from 15 countries, to compete in 11 different sports at the highest level.

Jung (14), Tan (16) and Chang (16) qualified for the Games after a successful year with the academy.

In October, Jung won the Newton International Sub Junior Classic, a competition regarded as one of the premier junior events on the Australian golf calendar.

He was the third West Australian in the past four years to take out the Boys’ Sub Junior Category after Hayden Hopewell, also from Como Golf Academy, and Cooper Geddes.

Jung has also won Champion Boy at the Como Golf Academy Championships, and overall best gross in the School Sport Golf WA Team Championships this year.

The Pacific School Games will be held in Adelaide this year, from December 3 – 9.
