The Otago quintet had a difficult day to start the 2018 Freyberg Masters at Taupo’s Centennial course yesterday, but the morning round was a lot closer than the final score indicated.

Otago lost the opening encouter to northern neighbours, Aorangi, by 3 1/2 matches to 1 and a half, but 3 of the 5 matches ended as halves.

Aorangi, however, were too strong at the head and tail of their lineup with the very experienced Jason Leary leading the team home with a comfortable 4/3 win over Otago’s Steve Horn.

The afternoon round, against the powerful Auckland side, was all one way traffic, with the Northern powerhouse winning 5 – 0.

Steve Horn, playing at number 1 one for Otago, met his second high class opponent of the day.  Brent Paterson is a former NZ rep with a long list of successful events behind him and he remains one of the countries best “Senior” age group golfers.  He won the encounter 8/6 to lead his team to victory.

The Otago Team is:

1 Steve Horn            Otago

2  Paul Hubbard     Otago

3  Gary Creedy        North Otago

4  Aaron Charteris    Otago

5  Kevin Clark           Cromwell

Reserve    Brett McCormack    Otago
