A birdie, eagle, birdie finish was more than enough for Josh Munn to win the Hastings 72 Hole Open at Bridge Pa by 6 shots on a 284 (-4) total. Having staked his claim as one of the best players in the country in 2010, the start to 2011 could not have been better. Rounds of 76 and 71 saw him 2 off the pace overnight but Sundays play saw him fly past all contenders after rounds of 70 and 67. With a golfing C.V that is getting better every week, Josh will push hard for national team selection before the year is out. Other players from Manawatu Wanganui fared well also; 2009 Toro team member Stu Smith finished 3rd, Ewan Westergaard 5th and Trent Munn 9th.
