Three Kiwis, One Aussie – Game On!

The quarter finals in the 2020 New Zealand Women’s Senior Championships, played today, has narrowed the field to one Australian, Jacqui Morgan (Monash) carrying the torch going into the semi-finals, tomorrow, Thursday 20 February.

Morgan had a solid round today dropping only one shot in the first 9 holes, when matched against her fellow team member, Helen Pascoe (Buninyong, Australia). Pascoe had a rough start including concessions on the 2nd and the 8th, giving Morgan a 4-shot lead going into the back nine.

Although Morgan lost the 14th with a bogey 5 on the par 4, she eventually took out the match with a comfortable win 4 and 3.

Morgan, the Australian captain of the Trans-Tasman team due to compete this weekend, will now face Brigit Holford in the first of the semi-finals for the NZ Golf Veterans Challenge Cup.

Due to tee off at 10.04 at Taupo Golf Club, Holford (Royal Auckland & Grange) continued her strong form with a 3 and 2 win over Robyn Pullar (Invercargill).

Both Holford and Pullar will represent New Zealand this weekend in the Trans-Tasman, but with much to play for this week, Holford is focused on this week’s target, chasing her second win in this prestigious senior women’s tournament.

Crowned the 2014 Champion, Holford turned all square at the turn, and with pars on the 11th and 13th where Pullar faltered, gave her the edge, the match eventually won on the 16th.

Robyn Boniface has been a constant force in this tournament, for 10 years. Boniface played her first Senior Women’s Championship in 2010 and won. Boniface, the defending champion, has won four times and has held the Curtis Cup, the Stroke Play Champion, four times also.

Boniface secured her place in the second semi-final after defeating Sharon Dawson (Denmark CC, Australia) 2 and 1. Boniface was in a strong position after 9 holes, 3-up but with a couple of loose shots, and a resurgent Dawson, needed to play onto the 17th, to claim the win.

Can Boniface make it two in a row, and take the Cup for the 5th time? She will need all her guile and skill to play local Diana Syer, in the first instance.

The second semi-final due to tee off at 10.04am will see the in-form Syer, who recently won the 2020 New Zealand Women’s Mid-Amateur, match against Boniface.

Syer, who also has a place in this weekend’s New Zealand Trans-Tasman team, advanced today to the semi-finals after a win, 3 and 2 over Jill Morgan (Cambridge). The pair traded pars, halved holes, see-sawing back and forth till the 13th, when all square.

The ‘light went on’, Syer triggered 3 wins in a row and suddenly, Morgan was out of holes to chase. Syer playing in her first Senior Women’s Championships, will need her local knowledge and form to win against the very experienced Boniface.

For Kiwis one thing is sure, whatever the outcome, at least one New Zealand will advance to the final. The question is, will they face off against Australia’s Jacqui Morgan, or Auckland’s Brigit Holford in tomorrow’s finals, due to commence from 2.00pm.

Quarter Finalists Found

Day one of the 2020 New Zealand Senior Women’s Championships completed and already a ‘Trans-Tasman’ Rivalry exists.

In the first match out in the 16 player match play draw, Jacqui Morgan, (Monash, Australia) beat her fellow ‘countryman’, Carmen Palframan (Lake Karrinyup, Australia), 2 and 1.

Morgan, the captain of the Australian Trans-Tasman Senior Women’s team due to compete this weekend, turned two down after 9 holes with a bogey and double bogey on the 8th and 9th respectively. The match had been all square till that point.

The tide turned dramatically when Palframan had two bogies in a row on the 10th and 11th, where Morgan made par and birdie respectively. Morgan effectively closed out the match on the 13th and 14th with two more wins, from which Palframan could not recover.

Morgan will now face another ‘countryman’ Helen Pascoe (Buninyong, Australia) who had had a tougher battle against Waikato’s Robyn Pellow.

Pellow and Pascoe had faced each other on two previous occasions, each with a win a piece.

Today was to be Pascoe’s 2nd win after a battle that she started with a birdie and closed with a birdie.

The match had earlier see-sawed with the Trans-Tasman rivals turning all square. However three holes won by Pascoe on the 11th, 13th, and 15th to Pellow’s wins on the 10th, and 16th gave the Aussie the edge with a final hole to play. The birdie on the par 3, 18th, sealed the deal.

Predictably the third match out was won by Southland’s Robyn Pullar. Pullar who will again represent New Zealand in this weekend’s Trans-Tasman, is recognised as one of the games tough battlers.

Pullar matched against the host clubs president, Anna Brabyn, who is no stranger to tough matches or challenges. Sadly for the locals, Brabyn could not quite match her form of yesterday where she qualified in this prestigious division, outclassed today by Pullar, who won 5 and 4.

Pullar will now take on her New Zealand team-mate, Brigit Holford (Royal Auckland & Grange).

Holford a long-serving representative for Auckland had a comfortable win today, 6 and 4 against another district representative, Tracy Bary, from Tasman. Holford’s consistent run of pars on the front nine where Bary was struggling with bogies, continued into the five holes played on the back nine. Bary was unable to win a hole and lost the match on the 14th.

The bottom half of the 16-player draw saw Robyn Boniface (Queens Park), Sharon Dawson (Lake Karrinyup, Australia), Jill Morgan (Cambridge) and Diana Syer (Wairakei) all advance to take their place in the quarter finals.

Boniface who is a four-time Senior Women’s Champion, had a win, 3 and 2 over Sharon Thompson who plays her golf both in Australia and New Zealand with memberships on both sides of the Tasman.

Boniface turned 2-up, only losing one hole on the 8th, to Thompson’s birdie. However a couple of pars on the back nine, where Thompson bogeyed, the match was Boniface’s on the 16th, despite an eagle by her Australian opponent on the 13th.

Boniface will match tomorrow against Sharon Dawson, a past New Zealand Senior Women’s Champion.

Dawson won her match today 5 and 4 against the Bay of Plenty’s Shelley McElroy. Dawson was in top form with birdies on the 2nd, 3rd and 7th. Another eagle was recorded on the short par 5, 13th this time to McElroy, but which wasn’t enough to get her ‘out of jail’, Dawson sealing the match on the next hole.

Two Kiwis will contest tomorrow for the final quarter final place. Jill Morgan (Cambridge) who for some was a surprise omission from the pending Trans-Tasman displayed some great style yesterday with a round of 77, to qualify in 3rd place, further matched with a win today 3 and 2 over Joanne Neep (Arrowtown).

Although the pair matched shot for shot on the back 9, Morgan had turned 2 up after birdies on the 2nd and 7th. Neep faltered on the 16th with a bogey, Morgan parred and the match was hers, with two holes remaining.

Diana Syer, a local from nearby Wairakei has been playing a lot of her recent golf on the Taupo Centennial course. Syer despite a rough start with a ball out of bounds on the 1st off the tee, and a bunker that cost her further on the 2nd, showed some real form on the 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th winning four holes in a row.

Syer’s opponent was the talented New South Wales player, Kim Burke who won the NZ Senior Cup in 2017, and who is no stranger to competing in this tournament. However with Burke’s defeat today, this means that one Kiwi will at least advance to the finals, with three out of the four quarter final places at the bottom of the draw, are all New Zealand representatives, past or present.

Monday 17 February

Top 16 Found!

Trans-Tasman Captain, Jacqui Morgan (Monash) will lead the charge tomorrow in the 72nd New Zealand Women’s Senior Championships, as the top qualifier with a par round of 73.

Morgan who is a regular competitor on this side of the Tasman, both in New Zealand national events and more social multi-course challenges, was the only player to make par.

The four day tournament is being played on Taupo’s Centennial Golf Course, which with recent dry weather conditions is presenting players with tough ‘links-like’ fairways. While the course was softened with some overnight misty rain, tough bounces and penal rough made it a sound challenge for the 124 strong field.

Morgan is here with an Australian contingent of 19 players has a notable career of 16 Australian State and Territory Championships. Morgan bogeyed the par 4 - 4th, par 5 - 11th, and par 4 - 16th countered by birdies on the 1st a tight opening par 4, par 5 – 2nd, and par 5 – 13th.

Morgan will now pair off against fellow team mate Carmen Palframan (Lake Karrinyup) who shot a 82 to make the top 16 and the coveted first division. Palframan just pipped Debbie McCallum (Te Ngutu) in a count-back.

New Zealanders in top form and making the top 16 are Southland’s Robyn Boniface (Queens Park) with a 76, Jill Morgan (Cambridge) one shot back on 77, and Robyn Pullar (Invercargill), Tracy Bary (Rarangi) and Diana Syer (Wairakei), all shooting 78.

Six over par, shooting 79 were the quartet of Shelley McIlroy (Springfield), Robyn Pellow (Ngaruawahia), Helen Pascoe (Buninyong, Australia) and Sharon Dawson (Denmark CC, Australia).

The top 16 qualifiers included Kim Burke (Shelly Beach, Australia) who will match against Diana Syer, and, Brigit Holford (Royal Auckland & Grange) who will compete for a win in round one, taking on Tracy Bary.

Anna Brabyn, a past district representative and Taupo’s President, shot an 81, 4-under her handicap to confirm her place in the top division, and will face Robyn Pullar.

Joanna Neep (Arrowtown) also qualifying on 81, will match against Jill Morgan, while Sharon Thompson (Avondale & Queenstown) will play Robyn Boniface.

The 2nd division competing for the Waipukurua Jubilee Salver includes Suzette Eastmond (Waitikiri) from the winning 2019 Canterbury Masters team, local Chris Pritt, a past Bay of Plenty representative, and Annette Muir (Waitemata), Michelle Reardon (Nelson), Joanne Wilton-Eadie (Levin), Jo Kent (Rangiora), all past or current district representatives.
