The Powerturf Manawatu Open is being played at Manawatu Golf Club this Sunday. This is the final Order of Merit event before the naming of the Men's and Women's.
The event is looking wide open in the men's division with a few players missing this weekend. Liam Finlayson is the current leader in the Order of Merit, and is possibly the event favourite. Other likely challengers include Kunal Singh from Auckland, Regan McConaghty, Tony Chettelburgh, Angus Findlay and Josh Sedgwick. Some of the younger players such as Ryan Rooney and Kaleb Idemaru also have the potential to impress.
In the women's division Tara Raj is definitely the player to watch, with Lisa Herbert, Zhouyi Hu and Lily Griffin all likely challengers.
We wish all participants the very best on Sunday.
