Geary close to magic 59 at Akarana

An outstanding display of golf from Tauranga professional Josh Geary saw him threatening to break 60 for much of his round.  Blitzing through the first nine in 28, he got to 8 under after 12, only to see a 3 metre putt slide by on 13. A magnificent second on the par 4 15th left him a two metre birdie opportunity which literally slid over the cellophane bridge, with the return putt horseshoeing out for his only bogey of the round.  Another birdie on 17 saw him finish on 8 under 62, a new course record for the Akarana layout.

Geary starts Round Two this morning with a three shot lead over amateur Blair Riordan (Takaka), followed by Auckland professional Hogan Cho (66), and on the same score Australian Amateur champion Tae Koh, and Bailey Smith (Mount Maunganui).  Moving Day will also be Cut Day, with the top 60 players plus ties playing in tomorrow's final round of this $40,000 tournament.

Akarana Open Underway

Round One at the Recreational Services Akarana Open has begun in conditions which couldn't be more different from yesterday's cyclonic blast.

Superintendent Stuart Baird and his team have done a fantastic job to get the course back in condition, as evidenced by some of the early scoring.  However, the wind is getting up, and there is still rain in the forecast...
