A group of 9 Manawatu Wanganui players have made the trek north to Hamilton to compete in the 2020 North Island U19. A couple of these players have made a great start to the event today, with Tara Raj shooting a 4 under par 69 at Riverside Golf Clubs Narrows course, to currently sit 1 shot behind the two leaders. Younger sister Sera Raj shot a 79, which is a good start for her, and Lily Girffin also shot a 79 in round 1.
In the Boys event over at Hamilton Golf Club, Foxton's Anthony Ilton-Maher fired a 2 under par 70, which should see him well placed by the end of today's play. Other players still out on the course include Cameron and Keiran Giddens, from Levin, and the Feilding trio of Ryan Rooney, Ethan Ward and Remy Early.
We wish all the players all the best for the remainder of the event which concludes on Friday.
