Rising star wins PSSA Golf Championships

Camilla Kim.

11-year old rising star Camilla Kim (Lynwood CC) continues to build on her already impressive golfing resume, taking out the 2022 PSSA Golf Championships last week, with a stunning runaway 18-shot victory.

Played as a 3-day event, Camilla partnered with Evelyn Oram (Richmond GC) to finish 3rd in the four-person Ambrose event at Brighton Lakes GC on Monday.

Sydney West’s teacher split his team into two x 2-person teams, rather than run as 4-person team, but Camilla and Evelyn rose to the occasion superbly, shooting an amazing 7-under par score of 65 to finish in third position, only beaten by two 3-person teams.

Camilla backed up brilliantly in the Girls singles event which was held on Tuesday (Brighton Lakes) and Wednesday (Barden Ridge), shooting 75 / 77 = 158 over the two days, thereby blitzing the field for a runaway victory, with three of her Sydney West team-mates also finishing in the Top Ten.

Honey Kim (Mackillop / Lynwood CC) finished in 6th spot on 194, ahead of Sydney West players Alicia Luo (7th), Evelyn Oram (8th) and Emma Fan (9th).

In the Nett (handicap) results, Honey Kim finished 2nd, Alicia Luo 5th, Evelyn Oram tied 6th, Camilla Kim 8th and Emma Fan 9th.

Hunter McMillan (Sydney West) was his team’s best performer in the Boys divisions, finishing in 13th position Gross and in 3rd position in Nett.
