Aorangi Finish Tied for Fourth at NZ Women's Masters

Posted by: on 6 April 2017

The Aorangi Womens Masters team of Catherine Knight (Ashburton), Ginny Bolderston (Geraldine), Sharon Bradford (Ashburton) and Wendy Parr (Ashburton) performed brilliantly at the recent NZ Women's Masters which were played at the Ngaruawhia Golf Club in Hamilton. 

The competition is a four round gross stableford format, so a team with low handicap golfers were at a significant advantage.  Aorangi are fortunate to have Knight playing off scratch, Bolderston on 3, Bradford on 7 and Parr playing off a 10 making the team competitive at this event.  The conditions were tough for Parr but she dug in and completed her rounds with positivity and team spirit.  Bradford played to her handicap with very consistent scores.  Even with work commitments Knight is very competitive playing well throughout the week showing was she is still a quality scratch golfer, a great asset for the region.  Bolderston , although scoring three good rounds had a disappointing round on the Saturday afternoon which may have cost the team a better position, but that's golf!!

After the first three rounds the team was in fifth position tied with Southland which would prove to be a battle for a top finish by the two South Island teams.  Good solid rounds from all four players gave Aorangi the second best round of the day with the team moving up a spot to be tied for fourth with local favourites Waikato and five shots clear of Southland.

The Northland team were dominant throughout the week finishing with a winning margin of ten shots over Bay of Plenty, with defending champions Auckland finishing in third position.  The Northland team charge was led by new-master Kylie Jacoby who shot a 38 in her first round. Jacoby’s skill and consistency over the following three rounds, also saw her claim the Canterbury Shield for the best individual performance, by one shot over Auckland’s captain, Lisa Herbert.
