It may be Spring Break for the student-athletes at IMG Academy, but for some of them, it’s a prime opportunity to compete. IMG Academy golfer Leo Kitahara, a native of Brazil, traveled home and competed in the Buzios Amateur Open, held at the Buzios Golf Club & Resort in Rio de Janeiro, March 23-24. One of the most challenging courses in Rio, windy conditions did not stop the 18-year old Kitahara from winning the Amateur Men’s Division. Kitahara shot rounds of 72 and 78 for a six-over 150 for the victory.
