The weeks wrap of Southland golf news thanks to Jerrie from Golf Southland.

Southland Matchplay Championships
Liam Hewitt has continued his excellent form to win the Southland Matchplay Championships; defending the title he won last year and backing up from his recent win in the NZ Age Group Championships. Liam defeated Doug Carmichael 7/6 in the final, playing under the card.

Queenstown golfer Sumin Kang won the 2019 women’s title, defeating local Robyn Boniface in the final.

Bryan Cantley won the Intermediate division over runner-up George Prendergast and Chris McMillan was the men’s junior winner over runner-up Brendan Price.

Simon Hollyer was the men’s over 40 winner and runner-up was Glen Sutherland.

Suzan Racz was the women’s rosebowl winner.

Matthew McLellan and Faye Dudfield were the respective male and female winners of Sunday’s stableford.

Unfortunately, bad weather caused havoc, leading to the Saturday afternoon round being called off and rescheduled to nine holes on Sunday morning. The semi-finals were also reduced to nine holes and the finals were played over 18.
