Waikato Match Play Golf Championships 2020

IMG20200904180628It has been an absolute pleasure to take 13 of our HBHS golfers to the 2020 Waikato Match Play Championships.   A huge thank you must go to Waikato Golf and the Ngaruawahia Golf Course for making the tournament possible.  Jakob Bird (Year 11) extended his lead in deciding the Senior Golf Champion for 2020 with a 75 in the first round and as the only HBHS golfer to make it into Division 1.  He went on to finish 5th, losing his first game but then winning both of his final games.  Anthony East (Year 13) proved too strong and won Division 2 and Sam McArthur (Year 13) went on to win Division 3.  The highlight for me as Teacher in Charge of Golf was watching the two Year 9 Hostel boys play out of their skins to show the senior leavers how it’s done and demonstrating that HBHS Golf is in very good hands. Well done, Jakob Arthur and Ricci Putohe on a solid two days of golf.  Ricci was even able to beat me off the stick which could see my job up for grabs moving into 2021!  To all the Dads out there, take your sons out for a hit as it is an excellent sport to get involved in and there are heaps of opportunities at HBHS. Thank you, students for a fun two days.  I’m so proud to be associated will you all as you conduct yourself so well on the Golf course.
