Onewhero Golf Club are proud to share the news of one of their members, Troy Harold, who competed in the Toro New Zealand Speed Golf Champs at Windross Farm, Papakura on 24 and 25 February.
Troy is now the New Zealand Masters Speed Golf Champion. Speed golf is a relatively new golf game where contestants complete an 18 hole course in the fastest time and the lowest score. The time is added to the score with every stroke equivalent to a minute. So, if the player is a bit slower but shoots a low score they can still come in with a competitive score.
Troy had the fastest time of the field on the first day of the two-day competition with a time of 45.06 and a score of 84.
On day two he took more time over his putts and posted a time of 47.05 but lowered his score to 78. These two scores combined gave him a total of 245.11 which put him in fifth place overall and first in his grade.
Onewhero Golf Club Green staff are delighted with Troy’s success as he has been a great advisor in the art of turf culture for the last 18 months.
