Tapanui Golf Club hosted the 2019 South Otago Championships on Sunday with a total of 53 participants spread from Under 14 to Veterans age. Although the weather dampened as the day went on, spirits remained high in the field as Tapanui Golf Club did a great job keeping the players warm and well fed. In the damp conditions, the course was playing long, with many demanding tee shots. Senior Champion Matt Crawford displayed a gritty performance to stay level with the card for most of the round, before letting a couple slip coming home. However, his 2 over 74 was enough to clinch the best gross in a field that included defending champion Brandon Hodgson, and Otago No.1 Inia Logan.

Throughout the field and across all divisions, many players struggled to shoot under their handicap, but the best net score of the day came in the veteran’s section with local Bill McCall posting a net 68 to claim the coveted Veterans plate. Many thanks go to sponsors of the event, Mataura Licensing Trust, Al’s Golf Shop, INGOLF, & Kane Farms.
