Purser wins after wild weather at Whanganui

Gale force winds caused a postponement of play then cancellation of the second round of the Pin-High, Craigs Investment Partners Pro-am at Belmont Links.

Thirty two groups playing in the Pro-am battled strong winds which gathered in ferocity until balls were being blown about on the greens. The winds were so fierce that it was difficult for players to tee the ball up or to achieve any balance when swinging. Due to the cancellation of the second round the $20,000 prize money was paid out on the first round scores. 

The winner was Mark Purser with a very impressive score of 69 in trying conditions. In second place was Victor Janin with 71 and tied for third place were Richard Lee, Martin Pettigrew and local player Nick Gillespie on 72.


 

Toomey 2nd in Noumea

NZ amateur Luke Toomey has completed an outstanding tournament to finish 2nd in the South Pacific Open in Noumea, with a 4 round total of 284, 10 under par.  He actually outscored winner Adam Stephens (NSW) over the last three rounds, but his opening 73 left him too far behind in the end.

Also prominent under the NZ flag were rookie pro Peter Lee (Rotorua), who finished T5 at -9 to continue his excellent season.  Brad Shilton will be regretting his 3rd round of 76, but rallied to finish T15 at -5. Both golfers now travel to Wanganui as the Mondiale NZ PGA Order of Merit circuit resumes on Friday 19th September.

Lydia Ko slid over par to record a 3rd round 72 in the Evian Championship, but on a day of generally high scoring she is now only 4 shots behind surprise leader Hyo Joo Kim.  There are many winning possibilities, but Lydia is certainly not out of the reckoning.
