Kiaran Therese Montebon from Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines, birdied 2 of the last 3 holes to salvage a tie for 7th place in the just concluded 2019 World Teen Championship at the Longleaf Golf & Family Club at Southern Pines, North Carolina, USA.
With her 7th place finish, she received a TOP 20 Award for the prestigious tournament which draws golfers ages 13—18 to seven championship courses in the Pinehurst area. She was the only Filipino among the 50 players.
By finishing as Top 7 in the World Teens Championship, she was chosen to be a part of the World Van Horn Cup, a one-day best ball tournament featuring the top players from the United States squaring off against the top players from the rest of the world.
