HÀ NỘI — Vietnamese golfer Nguyễn Thảo My has been invited to compete at the Women’s Amateur Asia Pacific Championship at the Royal Golf Club in Japan from April 25-28.

My is world amateur No 426. She is currently studying at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Last year, My was runner-up at the National Women’s Golf Championship and won two gold medals at the National Sports Games.

The Asia Pacific event is for amateur golfers from 20 countries. Each country will have a maximum of six golfers participating. The winners will earn tickets to compete at the AIG Women’s British Open and Evian Championship.

Last year, Việt Nam had only one representative, Japanese-Vietnamese Hanako Kawasaki. The event’s winner was Thailand’s Atthaya Thitikul. The 15-year-old secured a dramatic wire-to-wire victory following a four-way play-off at Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore. 

The event has been developed by the R&A and Asia-Pacific Golf Confederation to unearth emerging talent and provide a pathway for Asia’s elite female amateurs to the international stage. — VNS
