Our last day of round robin matches. A bye this morning then we played a strong host team Northland. It wasn't looking good after 9 but the boys dug in and put the pressure on.

Women's Toro - Day 3

7 December 2017

The final day of pool play proved to be as tough as expected . Playing Northland and Manawatu Wanganui our team struggled with the level of consistency and experience needed. The course had a number of extremely demanding holes. The number 14 par 3 proved the nemesis for many players with a par a victory over the hole. But our Jessica  Shearer had birdied the hole 3 times over of the the 6 rounds. This achievement reflected Jessica’s awesome golfing ability. She went to the 18th both rounds today achieving a win and a half. At number 4, Kathryn Baker had a great half...

Day 2 - Women's Toro

6 December 2017

Tuesday and Day 2 at the Women’s Toro was always going to be tough for the Aorangi team. Playing once again some very tough opponents . The morning round saw Aorangi go down 4 and 1 to Wellington. Jessica Shearer had a brilliant win at number 5. In the afternoon against North Harbour, whose number one is the present NZ Amateur champion at 14 years of age!!, the closest match was Lynda Brown who lost 1 down . Generally the girls performed to their ability and played very well but the lack of consistency at crucial times was their main down fall. 4 rounds...
