2022 – big year of tournament golf and got some great results so far – check out the blog posts. And got another hole in ONE but my first in Australia at the Jack Newton Junior Golf tournament where I am representing NZ.
After back to back strokeplay wins at North Harbour and Waikato, this has propelled me to be ranked no 4 golfer by NZ Golf. Looking forward to Kapi Tareha tournament at my home course Napier GC in a couple of weeks! Bring it on.
NZ Golf contacted me and I have been invited to join the three day NZ Academy training in July at St Peters in Hamilton. My first invitation to a National training event.
June 6 2021 – Won the Maraenui Matchplay Open in the weekend. Had a bye in the first round then won my matches 3/2, 3/2 and the final 5/4. Really happy with my weekend. Didn’t hit the ball as I wanted but my short game was awesome!! Capped off an excellent 3 weeks of golf for me. Won the OngaOnga 27 Hole Open before this and Horowhenua Open after this!!
My two NZ Golf Medals on show – Bronze at NZ Interprovincial and Silver for NZ Under 16’s.
Playing at the NZ Interprovincials at Whitford Park Country Club in Auckland, from 24-28 November. Here is our team photo. I am the second youngest player at the event, with Josh Bai from Auckland 3 months younger than me.
