Aidric Chan became the first Filipino to win a Junior World Championship crown in five years, hitting a clutch birdie on No. 16 to edge New Zealand’s Jimmy Zheng by one in the boys’ centerpiece division in the Junior World Championships at the Torrey Pines North in San Diego, California Friday. But Chan needed to gut it out in the last two holes to pull off the stirring victory, coming through with clutch pars and watching Zheng flub a pair of tying birdie putts to preserve the lead he gained with a solid drive and approach shot to within 8-10 feet which he banged in on the 16th.

Pod čutni, ljubezensko obarvani valček sta se kot avtorja melodije podpisala Sašo Avsenik in Matjaž Vlašič, kot avtor teksta pa Jan Plestenjak. Kot solistka v skladbi se tokrat predstavlja Lucija Selak, ki so jo fantje lani srečali na eni od veselic na Dolenjskem, njen občutek za interpretacijo in izvajanje besedila pa jim je ostal tako v spominu, da so jo povabili k sodelovanju snemanja skladbe Skozi leta. Zanjo je to hkrati tudi debi v narodnozabavni glasbi. Sašo Avsenik je ob izidu skladbe povedal:»V to skladbo vlagamo vse, kar smo v desetih letih pridobili in se naučili, to je avtorstvo, glasbeno znanje, čustva in ustvarjalnost. Naj ji ob izidu zaželimo le eno: ‘Naj ostane skozi leta!’« Skupina je spot za skladbo Skozi leta posnela v občini Solčava. Slednji se ob tej priložnosti zahvaljujejo za vso podporo in organizacijo. Spot bo gledalce popeljal po Logarski dolini, Solčavi, Robanovem kotu in okoliških krajih. Je delo produkcijske ekipe Novisuals, režijo pa je tokrat prevzelIgor Pečoler.
