Robert Inging Ak Will in particular for giving Miri Golf Club this opportunity to host this event.  He added that Miri has over these few years groomed many juniors and this is the right time for them to be exposed and experience playing in an Open Tournament.  This will enable them to gain deeper insight and experience playing with other junior golfers better than themselves.

He also thanked the MGC Junior Committee and in particular, Dato’ Sebastian Ting, the advisor of the Junior Golf Program for “Trees don’t grow overnight”, it is the effort of this group of dedicated committee who made MGC Junior Golf Program possible.
