Stuart Duff of Hastings Golf Club has put on a dominant display at the New Zealand Seniors to win by four shots at the Christchurch Golf Club.

Consistency was key for the 55-year-old who shot rounds of 71, 70 and 71 to hold off the country’s number one senior in Brent Paterson, who is the current Australian Seniors champion.

With 166 competitors and 45 international players in the field, which included a very strong Australian contingent, this is a superb victory by the former Central Districts Cricket representative.


Christchurch Golf Club was challenging throughout the week and set up with a mixture of different tee and pin placements to test the best players over the three-day event. Wind played a large factor on day one and two with Duff having the best score in each round which separated him from the peloton.

Duff now makes his debut in the Sanctuary Cove Trophy today as our New Zealand team take on Australia at the same venue which could hold the Kiwis in good stead.

Sole Englishman, Alan Mew won the 65-69 division by three shots over local golfer, John Sanders which was a fitting reward after travelling from the other side of the globe to participate in one of our biggest events in the calendar.

To add to the early excitement of 2018, a squad of six amateur Kiwi girls head to Singapore next week to compete in the Women’s Amateur Asia-Pacific before all eyes turn to the ISPS Handa New Zealand Open on March 1 at both Millbrook and The Hills.
