Harry Bateman showed his class today to easily win the Tommy's Paraparaumu Beach Pro am. The conditions proved to be very difficult with a strong warm breeze  and treacherous rough causing problems for amateurs and professionals alike. Bateman handled the conditions with aplomb and his round of 68 included  a single bogey at the ninth hole.  Three shots behind on even par 71 were Nelson professional Nick Loach and Melbourne based Josh Munn. Tied in fourth place on 73 were Jason Mann and Lachie McDonald.
