Profile

Josh Munn 3/5/1991
 
Joshua Munn made a name for himself when in 2011 he won the ask>metro Muriwai Open on the Charles Tour. Munn was only the fourth amateur to win on the Charles Tour and the way he did it was most impressive. He opened with a course record nine under par 63 that included only 21 putts. He backed that up superbly to hold off a concerted challenge from Grant Moorhead and Hamish Robertson for a memorable win. Munn went onto play a leading role for Manawatu / Wanganui when they defeated Auckland in the playoff for the SBS Invitational title in 2012. Munn squared off with James Eng for the title in what was a gripping battle that saw both players traded birdies for the opening two holes. On the third hole Munn came up with the decisive blow. He holed a 45 foot putt for birdie and when Eng missed his chance from 12 feet Manawatu / Wanganui had won the title for the first time since 2002 and only the second time in the province’s history. Munn also finished fifth at the ask>metro Muriwai Open in 2012 and later that year he won at the Harewood Open on The Charles Tour He became the first amateur to win two titles on the local tour after a wire to wire win. His biggest win of note came late in 2012 when he claimed the Lake Macqaurie Cup in Australia in an impressive performance in the rain and he also finished runner up in the Argentine Amateur. Munn has shown time and time again that when he contends golf tournaments he is a hard man to beat. He is a standout contender for the NZ Eisenhower team in 2014.
