A stunning performance when he needed it has secured world number one Jamie Reid another title. 
 
Overnight, Reid had a very narrow lead over Irishman Rob Hogan and a close dual between the former and current best exponents of speedgolf was expected. But it was a dominant day for Reid scoring 74 in 41 minutes and 7 seconds, for a speedgolf total of 115.07, which added to his day one effort of 79 in 41 minutes and 49 seconds, and a two day total of 235.56. When all scores and times were tallied, Reid was a clear winner by nearly 16 points.
 
The challenge from Hogan never eventuated, when he went out quickly and struggled with his golf game. His running time of 43 minutes was impressive but unfortunately he blew out to a score of 88. Incredibly that dropped him back to 5th place, in a very cramped leaderboard, where 2 seconds separated 3 players.
 
The surprise package of the tournament was Te Awamutu's Nic Ross. His golf scores of 81-78 with running times of 46 minutes was enough to total 251.24, finishing second just ahead of Australian James McMaster (252.53) Troy Harold (252.54) and Hogan (252.55)
 
The unbeaten record of Liz McKinnon continues. The former european tour player continues to improve in this fast format as each year her running gets better. Scores of 81-75, combined with running times of 54'41" and 56'04" gave her a total of 266.45 and a 12 point win over 18-year old Lily Griffin. 
 
Whitford Park was once again a fantastic venue for this format with club members supporting the competitors with great enthusiasm. Thanks to E-Z-GO and the extra golf carts provided which made scoring a fun experience.
