Final Report

Brent Paterson has won the New Zealand Men’s Senior Championship in dominant fashion after a final round of four-under (67) to win by six shots at the Ohope Golf Club.

Seven holes into the final round, Paterson was a remarkable three shots behind Omanu’s Andries Cloetes before he flicked the switch making five birdies from there to change the championship.

At the age of 57, the Royal Auckland member showed class and cashed in on the great conditions provided from Ohope over the weekend.

There is always more than one winner at the end of this great week with five age group categories competing from the 143 strong field.

Cloetes took out the 50-54 category, Paterson the 55-59, John Batley 60-64, Hugh Harrison 65-69 and Stu Reid claimed the 70+ title.
