CHEE HUAT CHONG - 2000 CHAMPION

However, golf has been his passion since, and he is also involved in developing golf courses in Western Australia. He has also travelled the globe, broadening his experiences by tackling the various golf courses around the world.

He has participated in numerous tournaments, but the Master of the Amateurs is the first major tournament he has won.


BRENDAN JONES - 1999 CHAMPION

Bobby Jones, I mean Brendan Jones, like others started playing golf at the age of 12, at the Moroya Golf Club in NSW, where he lived nearby with his parents and sister.

Brendan's Amateur success from 1992 when he was selected in the Australian under 18 Team. Until he was crowned Australian Amateur Champion in 1999 is nothing short of remarkable and would take an eternity to list all of his achievements, we do know however that he had an emphatic victory in the 1999 Master of the Amateurs. Displaying his enormous talent to an appreciative audience.

Brendan announced he was leaving the amateur ranks, and turned Professional on the presentation of the Master of the Amateurs "Green Jacket" and his title of "Master of the Amateurs". Brendan firstly secured his Asian Tour Card and was extremely successful on tour in Asia.

In more recent times Brendan has secured his American Tour Card, and is very successful on the USA PGA Tour.

Jim had ambitions to turn pro, but full time work from the age of 15 ended the possibility of that dream being fulfilled.
