Last Friday the ‘Paul Chaplet Tournament’ took place in Valle del Sol Golf Course, in Costa Rica. A considerable amount of golfers gathered in this tournament to show their full support to the talented junior athlete.
If you do not recall the name Paul Chaplet, perhaps you can look back a few months when the young golfer shot a 2-under 70 final round to win the second annual Latin American Amateur Championship and earned an invitation to play in the soon to come Masters Tournament.
With only 16 years of age, Chaplet will be the first Costa Rican and the second-youngest player to compete in the first mayor of the year held at Augusta National.
Here at WJG we are very proud of what Paul achieved and the example he is giving to all the junior golfers out there. He definitely sets a precedent for hard work, dedication and love for the game.
In a previous interview, his advice to all the junior golfers out there that hope one day to be great players was to: “have fun, have patience and be smart, because it is a game that’s all about how you manage the golf course and how you play it, and if you are having fun it is very easy to be smart.” There is no doubt he will be having fun this week where he is also going to have the best golfing experience of his life!
