Auckland Schools Golf Individual Strokeplay Championships
On Monday the Premier Golf team travelled to Waitemata Golf Club in Devonport to take part in the Auckland Schools Individual Strokeplay Championship. The weather gods treated them to a beautiful autumn day with sunshine and warm temperatures making it a perfect day for golf. With over 120 participants from both side of the bridge, and a number of NZ Golf representatives attending, the standard of competition was at an incredibly high level.
Hence Macleans College were thrilled with the quality of golf produced by our team with Mark Li taking out second place (on countback, he finished joint 1st on score alone) to secure his first placing in a major tournament. However, pride of place must go to Connor Barker who was one of only three golfers to have an under par won and took out the Greater Auckland Region title by a two shot margin. This is a huge achievement and he should be very proud of the quality of play that he produced.
At the end of the tournament the good news continued to flow as the boys were informed of their inclusion in various representative teams.
Jimmy Zheng :- Auckland Senior mens interprovincial team and NZ Golf Talent Development Programme
Connor Barker :- Auckland Senior mens interprovincial team.
Henry Wang :- Auckland Junior mens interprovincial team.
Tony Liang & Jarrod Millar :- Auckland Junior mens development team.
This capped off a tremendous period of success for the team and they are all looking forward now with excitement to the National Championships in Term 3.
