Cane and Chung 2020 Harcourts Wellington Matchplay Champions

A weekend of exciting results and top drawer golf concluded at Manor Park GC Sunday afternoon with Darae Chung repeating her 2019 truimph over previous champion Erika Cui and Jonno Cane prevailing after 3 extra holes over Jayden Ford for his 4th title win.

NZ's no.1 ranked Women amatuer continued her superb form of recent events as she held off a sub par challenge from school and representative team mate Erika in winning 5/3.

Jonno held a narrow lead for much of the match but a strong finish saw Jayden square the match up after 18 holes of regulation play. Driving the par 4 1st at manor Park Cane's effort was matched by Ford's birdie. Halving the 2nd extra hole as Jayden's putt for the title narrowly slid by, saw the pair play the 1st again, Jonno's eagle chip lipping out and nestling close proving the decisive shot as Jayden's putt stayed out after catching plenty of the hole.

A big thanks to Manor Park GC who provided course time for this event at this very busy time of the year post Covid lockdown.
