One of Kenzo’s passions in life is golf. Along with his Dad, Kenzo has spent quite a considerable amount of time perfecting his game. From the approach to the first tee box, to the last few inches of the putt on the last hole, Kenzo’s passion and respect for the game remains unbroken. Not even a hospital bed can keep Kenzo from getting into the game, as you can witness from one of his videos.
Kenzo was only 4 years old when received his first set of golf clubs as a Christmas gift from his Dad. He caught on to the game quite naturally, and by the time he was 8 years old, he was taking golf lessons at the Australian Golf Academy in Hong Kong.
A year later, he began taking part in golf tournaments, and at only 9 years old Kenzo was a Runner-Up in the “Australian Golf Academy Under 11 Tournament”.
In the years that followed, Kenzo would join his Dad and his Dad’s colleagues for rounds of golf at Kau Sai Chau, often beating their scores. The adults would even try to improve their own game by watching Kenzo’s swing and picking up tips for themselves.
After he was diagnosed with Leukemia, Kenzo would continue to come out to play a few holes as his strength would allow him. While his driving distance may have decreased slightly because of his condition, his accuracy and his absolute love for the game has never waivered. Seeing just how much Kenzo was missing the game during his long stays at the hospital, his Dad snuck in a golfing video game, bringing a much needed burst of positive energy to Kenzo.
