On the first day of the game, Luo Xuan 73 (+1) led the men's team; in the women's team, Yang Jieming and Deng Jingfan both surrendered 72 and won two shots.
Yang Jieming, a 15-year-old player, participated in two women's mid-courses at the beginning of this year. In recent months, she has been training and playing abroad with the national amateur training team. In the 2017 China Junior Golf Masters, she won the 4th place. Yang Jieming said: "The Nantong Yangtze River Golf Club has a lot of bunkers, and the greens are fast and steep, which is very difficult to deal with."
Deng Jingfan said: "The last 9 holes are more difficult than the first 9 holes. Today's swing is relatively stable, and there is enough space." She has already received an admission notice from the University of Washington and will enter the school in 2020.
The 2018 China Youth Masters competition has a strong lineup because the registration threshold is very high: the top 30 in the China Youth Association's youth rankings, the world's amateur points (the top 1000), the HSBC Youth Championship, the National Youth Championship, The HSBC National Championship Finals, as well as the men's teams A, B and C and the women's A, B and C champions of the National Match Play Championships are eligible to register. I believe that the next battle will be very exciting, and the strongest player in China's youth golf will be decided.
