VOV.VN - Eight young golfers are set to represent the country at the Southeast Asian (SEA) Amateur Team Golf Championship which is scheduled to take place in Malaysia from August 20 to August 24.
The men's team comprises of Nguyen Anh Minh, Doan Uy, Nguyen Dang Minh, and Nguyễn Nhất Long who will compete in the Putra category; whilst Nguyen Duc Son and Nguyen Tuan Anh have registered for the Lion’s U16 category.
The two female players include Le Thi Thanh Thuy and Le Chuc An, with the pair to vie for the Santi championship title.
Most notably, two outstanding golfers in the form of Nguyen Nhat Long and Le Chuc An previously won championship titles in the men’s and women’s categories at the 2023 national golf championship which concluded in Hai Phong in early August.
Both can be viewed as among the key players of the Vietnamese national golf team at the upcoming Asian Games (ASIAD) 19 which will be held in China in September.
The SEA Amateur Team Golf Championship was first held back in 1961 by former Malaysia Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman, with the ultimate goal of enhancing unity among golfers in Southeast Asia.
The tournament will have four different categories, including the Putra Cup which will be the main event for amateur male golfers 16 years old and above, the Lion City Cup for male participants under 16, the Santi Cup for females above 16, and the Kartini Cup for females under 16.
