Kazuma Kobori has notched up a great win not only winning the under 16 but also the under 19 at the 2017 Victorian Boys Championships at Yarra Yarra Golf Club. The boys contest was tight heading into the final round with five players within three shots of overnight leader Jye Pickin. Kobori started the day even further back, trailing Pickin by five strokes with 18 holes to play. With the pressure off, Kobori kept his head down and eyes off the leaderboard, eventually carding the lowest round of the day, a 3-under 69, to finish one shot clear of the field. “I’m stoked. I didn’t think I had a chance to win but to shoot 3-under and find out I won the tournament is pretty huge for me,” said Kobori. “I putted pretty mediocre yesterday but today I pretty much holed everything I looked at so it was a nice bounce-back.”
