The Aorangi Selectors are pleased to announce the team to compete in the NZ Golf Masters Tournament in Taupo 11- 17 November.
The team consists of the now 40 year old Nigel Heney from Tinwald. A very experienced and solid player at Interprovincial level, Nigel will strengthen the side. It is very disappointing this year to not have 'The Master’, Robbie Bell available for selection. Robbie has always performed as a solid anchor in any Freyberg tournament he has played in.
Jason Leary is back and with a wealth of experience and ability he will bring something special to the side. Also with some years experience at Freyberg Masters, Regan Stills will be playing at Number 3.
An exciting addition to this years team is Blair Franklin. In 2017 Blair travelled as Reserve/Manager but this year through some extremely strong performances has gained himself the number 4 position. At Number 5 and with a history of strong performances at Freyberg is Owen Miller. There is no doubt at this position he could make for a strong outcome.
Ray Grant (Greenie) this year is to be Reserve / Manager and no better player to be in this position. He has the game to come on as an effective reserve player should he be needed. Also his ability to lead the team from the sidelines is notorious and Aorangi Golf are fortunate to have his loyalty.
Congratulations to the team and of course GOOD LUCK from us all at Aorangi Golf.
Please find the time to watch the live scoring on the NZ Golf website over the tournament days, it can be a very exciting event.
