On December 4, 2011, the Hawaii State Junior Golf Association (HSJGA) concluded the final round 2011 Hali’imaile Pineapple Company Tournament of Champions at the beautiful Wailea Emerald Course.

It was a beautiful day with little wind and mostly sun, with a cloud or two providing cover to keep the heat down. Maui’s Alex Chiarella took top honors in the Boys 15-18 division at 8 under par (66-70-136). Eimi Koga, of Honolulu, took first place in the Girls 15-18 division (70-70-140).

The event was the culmination of an entire year of junior golf events organized and run by the HSJGA, which is the baby of Mary Bea Porter King, the Kauai-based former LPGA superstar who has made it her mission to take Hawaii Junior golf into the stratosphere.

Da Game show host Dave Ward interviews Mary Bea Porter-King at Wailea. Mary Bea Porter-King of Kapaa, Hawaii, is a celebrated four-sport collegiate athlete, LPGA Tour veteran, a pioneer in junior golf within her state, and one of the country’s most respected Rules officials. Now she has been named to receive the 2011 PGA First Lady of Golf Award. It couldn’t have happened to a more deserving or kind person.
