SOLOMON Islands young golfer Paul Foeadi is looking forward to making his debut at the 13th Asia-Pacific Golf Amateur Championship which starts on October 27 in Thailand.
The 24-Years-Old from Malaita province is expected to inspire other youth golfers in the country as he looks forward to competing against many top amateur golfers from the Asia and Pacific region.
Despite his lack of international experience and course to play in an exceptional top golf course venue in the world is a dream come true for Paul. Now he remains hopeful in his current scheduled training at the Honiara Golf Club course in Ranadi, East Honiara, as looks to take on the challenge at the Amata Spring Country Club in Chonburi, Thailand, from October 27-30, 2022.
Paul was introduced to golf as a sport in 2011, and from there his passion ignited until now. Later in 2019, he made his first golf competition appearance at 2019, XVI Pacific Games in Apia, Samoa.
He continued to sharpen his skills then until this year he was invited to participate in the 13th Asia-Pacific Golf Amateur Championship in Thailand.
“I have previously won the Solomon Islands Golf Open Championship in Honiara hosted Solomon Islands Golf Federation this year. It was a good experience and I took the positives from it.
“I have been playing well and I am hitting the ball well. I am hoping for another good week of training ahead of the Championship in Thailand.
“At the moment, I am also working on building my mental confidence and other weakness on the golf course. I am hoping the Championship in Thailand will be my major stepping stone as a local golfer,” Paul Foeadi told RAW SPORTS.
