Anstiss was beaten in a playoff by Gareth Paddison at Muriwai last year and a birdie barrage on the back nine was enough to surge past overnight leader Gareth Paddison and the in form Josh Geary. Queenstown based Anstiss finished on 13 under par and two strokes ahead of the leading amateur Dan Hillier on 11 under after a round of 67 today Gareth Paddison and a fast finishing Harry Bateman (65) tied for third place.
