NEW ZEALAND FALL SHORT AT JUNIOR WORLD CUP

13/06/2017

Daniel Hillier and the New Zealand team have fallen short of World Cup glory this evening after a challenging final round at the Toyota Junior World Cup of Golf in Japan.

After holding a two-shot leading entering the final day, Hillier couldn’t find the same form that got him into that position, carding an catastrophic round of nine-over to finish a very positive, yet tough week in ninth place.

The New Zealand team of Hillier, Inia Logan (T24), Tom Parker (T24) and Henry Spring (T44), completed the tournament in sixth place and showed great fight and potential in a very tough event.

The United States showed their consistency after winning the teams event by three shots with the standout performer being Frank Capan who was all class shooting a final round of two-under when it counted most.

The Kiwis will take huge learnings from this week after starting slow, the team showed they can fight back and compete with the best.

It’s no secret all roads lead to the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship at Royal Wellington later this year and they have all got a taste of what the competition will be like when the best of the best arrive in Wellington in October.
