Tal­ented two make fi­nals

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Withthe na­tional final of the 2012 Ju­nior Tiger Tour­na­ment at Palmer­ston North on April 15, the Waikato com­po­nent for qual­i­fy­ing was held at the Hukanui Golf Club on Sun­day March 18.

Ac­com­pa­nied by adults, more than 80 en­thu­si­as­tic young golfers com­peted, hop­ing to be one of four play­ers to at­tend the na­tion­als.

This event is a great op­por­tu­nity for tal­ented play­ers in New Zealand; a chance to be no­ticed.

And judg­ing by the play, there will be a num­ber who will be pur­su­ing higher hon­ours later.

Two Mata­mata ju­nior golfers rose above all oth­ers to win two di­vi­sions.

Dayna Mor­rowWil­son won the Girls 12- to 14-year di­vi­sion by five shots.

Jack Trower won the Boys 11 years and un­der di­vi­sion, by seven shots.

They both shot 34, which was two un­der the card.

Dayna won the Girls 11 and un­der in 2009, while Jack has backed up last year’s vic­tory in the same di­vi­sion.

Both young golfers will go to Palmer­ston North in April to com­pete in the na­tional final against the win­ners from the other 14 re­gional qual­i­fiers.
