Ryan Chisnall (9/10/1994)

Tasman golfer Ryan Chisnall has long been touted of a player of real potential and in 2014 he is beginning to fulfill that promise.

The Greenacres golfer almost claimed the most prized trophy in amateur golf in NZ last year when he finished runner-up to Kadin Neho in the final of the NZ Amateur. It was a loss that hurt but he has come back stronger in 2014. Most notably he claimed his first national title when he claimed the South Island Stroke Play title by one shot from Jordan Bakermans.
“Winning the South Island Stroke Play meant a lot to me,” he said. “It's the biggest win to date for me, so that made it that little bit sweeter. After I finished the last hole it gave me great sense of relief and satisfaction to chalk one up on the board. This was my first national title. Hopefully this gives me the confidence I need to win something bigger and better.”
He went onto finish fifth at the New Zealand Stroke Play Championship in Hastings and also as the fourth amateur at the Muriwai Open on the Charles Tour. The likeable lad from Tasman is growing in confidence all the time and that is sure to only build further as a Tier Two member of the revised National Academy.
