The boys have started well against BOP. Click here to view hole by hole updates
Manawatu Wanganui have defeated Wellington by 3.5 to 1.5 to book a spot in the Championship final against Bay of Plenty. This is the same final as last year, which went to sudden death playoff with the Bay team prevailing. Fingers crossed the boys can go one better this year!
6 December Update
Manawatu Wanganui secure a crucial half against Tasman to finish top of the Group table. The group results were so tight that if the final putt by Tasman number 1 Blair Reardon had gone in then our team would not have made the semi-finals. However they have done enough to secure the semi-fianl spot against Wellington tommorrow. Go Manawatu Wanganui.
5 December update
After 4 rounds have been completed at a very wet North Shore Golf Club our team is still unbeaten with 2 good wins against Eastland and Canterbury and a half against a well performed Otago team. The team had a bye in round one. Today's match against hosts and also unbeaten North Harbour may prove pivotal toward our semi final chances. The match against Otago which had to be completed this morning went right down to the wire, with Trent Munn winning the last 2 holes to halve his match, to get the crucial half. Play has been delayed today just like yeasterday due to heavy rain.
The Manawatu Wanganui team, runners up last year at Otago Golf Club will be hoping to do one better, but will need to play some great golf against quality opposition to achieve that. The team is Josh Munn, Tyler Hodge, Lachie McDonald, Trent Munn, Jack Leenards and Hayden Ring the travelling reserve. Originally Junior Tatana was named in the team, however a niggling shoulder injury forced him out last week. This means Jack Leenards goes into the number 5 spot and Hayden Ring, who was a pivotal member of last years team goes into the reserve spot. However with Hayden's experience and proven matchplay ability he is likely to get a run as part of the team during the week.
