Golfers were greeted with a misty cloud bank that swept over Pezula Golf Course that delayed the start of the Pezula Junior Open for over an hour before participants could tee off. KeNako Academy golfer Calvin Maia shot an impressive and career best 7 under par 65 to finish 2nd in the tournament, a shot behind the winner! Some incredible golf was played!! Well played Calvin! Calvin’s 3 month break from golf due to injury, gave him new perspective, dedication and focus for the game. Great to see you fully recovered and your commitment back in full force.
