 Stora Enso Cup - SWEDEN-FINLAND GOLF CHALLENGE - Thursday, 22 October 2018

Event Report

Venue:
Golf Club Narita Hightree, Chiba Prefecture

Team Result : FCCJ 83.9 - SCCJ 85.3

The 33rd Stora Enso Cup, the golf challenge between the Swedish and Finnish Chambers was played on Thursday, 22 November at Golf Club Narita Hightree in Chiba Prefecture. On a cloudy day with some light drizzle, the players could enjoy a beautiful and very colorful course.

26 players participated in the competition (16 from FCCJ, 10 from SCCJ). Notable was that 18 of the players were Japanese.

The FCCJ, which won the three previous events, retained the cup, beating the SCCJ by a fairly clear margin, 83.9 versus 85.2 as average for the best 80% in each team. The FCCJ has nine more wins than the SCCJ, 21 against 12.

Individual winner was Masaoki Fujira (FCCJ) with a net 72 (gross 94). Best SCCJ golfer was Nobuhiko Miyaji with a net 83. Best Gross was Tomoichi Onishi (FCCJ) with 92.

For full results, see below.

The winners of the longest drive were on No. 5 Masaoki Fujita (FCCJ) and Örjan Pettersson (SCCJ) on No. 13.

The near pin winners were: Shinichi Shimizu, SCCJ (no. 4), Tokuhiro Nakagawa, Guest (no. 5) and Fredrik Karlsson, Guest (no. 17). No-one managed to hit the green on no. 8.

We would like to thank the title sponsor Stora Enso Japan as well as all the players (and their companies) who brought nice prizes to the competition. Our thanks go also to the Golf Club Narita Hightree and their staff for helping us making this a great event at reasonable costs. A special thanks to the club for providing everyone with a pack of fresh eggs from a farm next to the course!
