DENZEL IEREMIA'S BEST WEEK AS A PROFESSIONAL IN JAPAN

14/05/2019



Denzel Ieremia has had a week to remember on the Asia Tour with a tied fourth finish at the Asia-Pacific Open Golf Championship to claim the biggest prize purse of his young career.

Played at the Sobu Country Club, Ieremia ended the week at one-under par on the very challenging course to be just two shots behind eventual winner Yosuke Asaji with a sensational chip-in on the final hole to finish in style.



This is the rookie-professionals best finish as he continues to grow and with rounds of 76, 68, 66 and 73, he took home an important paycheque of $132,000 NZD.

However, this wasn’t the only prize he took home. His third round of 66 was also the lowest of the week along with claiming the longest drive of the tournament which made for an additional $27,000 NZD on top.

Adding to his charming Kiwi image, he was also rewarded “The affection of the Japanese people” which completed an amazing week for the Waikato born golfer. This obviously played a part in also earning an invitation to the Japan Open in October.

Well played.
