Despite a short down poor of rain, youth golfers continued on through the second day of the 2012 BMW Guam Junior Open golf tournament Saturday at the Leo Palace Resort Golf Course.

Guam’s top female golfer, Nalathai Vangjalorn, continued her exceptional performance in the 13 to 14 year-old age group of the girls division. Despite having to play through light rain in the last hole after a fifteen-minute delay, Vangjalorn was able to finish with a score of 74. But it was an off-day for the young athlete after finishing with an impressive score of 69 on the first day. She finished second behind Tzu-Yi (Tweety) Chang who scored a 73.

“My performance today was bad, I didn’t like it. I was just distracted and it was an off-day,” Vangjalorn said.

“The rain wasn’t a problem. I played in England so the rain was actually comfortable to play in,” stated Vangjalorn who had recently returned from England where she competed in the British Junior Championship.

The last day for the tournament will be held tomorrow starting at 11:45 A.M. followed by an awards banquet.
