Dear ST reader,

At just 19, Shannon Tan produced one of Singapore golf’s finest moments on Feb 11 by staging a remarkable debut victory on the Ladies European Tour and winning the Magical Kenya Ladies Open.

Next, while her peers were hunting for jobs before graduation in 2023, Clara Lau was looking for an overseas football club to further her sporting career. She is one of several other Lionesses who have also packed their bags for Down Under recently.

Finally, former swim queen Joscelin Yeo has been inducted into the Singapore Sport Hall of Fame. She was one of eight new additions announced at a ceremony at the Istana last week.

See you again next week. For the latest news on Singapore sports, check out ST Sport on Instagram.
