Hak featured in ESPN and Golfweek

Golfweek Coverage • ESPN's coverage

Shun Yat Hak of Lake Mary, Fla., continues to make headlines as the top player in the Polo Golf Rankings.  In February, the Hong Kong native achieved his fifth career AJGA title after winning the HP Boys Championship at Carlton Woods.  Named one of ESPN’s Elite Eight of rising athletes, Hak has received wide-spread attention as one of the top junior golfers to watch.  Last week, Golfweek’s Sean Martin spent a day with Hak and his swing coach to learn more about the swing that has taken him to the top. 

Hak won his first AJGA event in 2009 at the TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior at Innisbrook hosted by Sean O’Hair. Throughout his AJGA career, Hak has finished in the top five in 14 events, and is a three-time Rolex Junior All-American.  In 2011, he collected wins at the Rolex Tournament of Champions and again at the TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior at Innisbrook hosted by Sean O’Hair.  Hak, who committed to Georgia Tech, has appeared in four UBS Hong Kong Opens and in 2010, he won the Florida Azalea Amateur.

Hak will make his fourth appearance at the Thunderbird International Junior in Scottsdale, Ariz., from May 25-28, 2012.
