Yesterday we attended the 2013 US Kids Golf World Championship Open Ceremony at Pinehurst Resort and really enjoyed it. All those junior golfers had been waiting at the entrance of Pinehurst Resort, assorted by different countries. They carried various gifts, pins, flags, badges, artcrafts etc. and exchanged gifts with kids from different countries. Alissa and Sophia really enjoyed the gift exchanging .
At 6pm the parade started. A big golf statues came first, then all those young championship in 2012 was rided on a car one by one —– how proud they are! Alissa was excited at seeing those Miss North Carolin, Miss Pinehurst, Princess of Pinhurst also joining the parade. Finally all the junior golf players as well as their family started parade. We whole family really enjoy the parade following Canada’s flag, following China’s team. There were over 1000 young golfers from more tan 40 countries participated in the World Championship. It was long parade with good ending: free ice cream for every golf participants. What a fun day of US Kids Golf World Championship Open Ceremony!
Alissa Xu’s Chip-in Eagle Shot
On May 5th, 2013, US Kids Golf Local Tour in Canada was played at Royal Niagara Golf Course. After playing 9-hole, at the group of girl 7 year old and under, Alissa Xu and Vanessa Borovilos has tied of 38 (+2). so they need to replay the hole 9 as the play-off hole. They also agreed to move the tee back about 10 yards.
Hole 9 par4:110 Yard (Play-off): Alissa had a great drive and it was deadly straight, but stuck in the rough before the green. She had about 10-12 yards chip from the rough. Vanessa’s ball was on the green so she had good chance to make the birdie. Alissa needs a up-n-down to tie the hole. At this moment, the amazing thing occurred, Alissa’s ball landed in the hole at the 2nd bounce! So, she had her first chip-in EAGLE ever! -2, EAGLE.
At this moment, everyone was very excited to witness the 7 year old making the chip-in eagle at the play-off hole. One tournament organizer and photographer was there since it was a play-off hole. They were all jumping up-n-down. At the end, the tournament organizer said “Alissa, your chip-in eagle is the highlight of the tournament regardless. Great job!”.
