Southlander takes Otago title

Southland golfer Matt Tautari has claimed the Otago Matchplay Championship title with an exciting win in the final at Otago Golf Club. Tautari birdied the 17th and 18th holes to force a 19th, with another birdie enough to give him the win over Otago’s Callum Judkins.

In other Southland results, Joshua Kalweit won the Division 2 Plate, and George Prendergast won the Division 3 Plate. Liam Hewitt was top qualifier, while Tautari qualified third.

Golf Southland Women’s Seniors
