Cambridge golfers Sian Stevenson and Jill Morgan were part of the Waikato masters’ team which won the national title at the Alexandra Golf Course on Sunday 3.

Stevenson and Morgan are both members of the Cambridge Golf Club and were joined in the team by long-time Waikato representative Robyn Pellow of Ngaruawahia and Waikare’s Michelle Archer.

Waikato led from the first round on Friday and secured the Russell Grace Trophy ahead of North Harbour for the fourth time in what was the event’s 30th year.

The tournament was set up originally by a group of Cantabrians who wanted to have a tournament for ‘older’ women who had played for their district at an interprovincial level but were now seeking a format that encompassed women aged 40 plus. The four round format, scored by gross stableford points pits the 14 districts against each other, where the best three scores per team per round count to the team totals.

The Waikato team players all contributed in some round with the top scorer being Morgan with 132 points, Pellow with 128, Archer 122 and Stevenson with 116.
