Pacific Tiger leads masters

Thursday 29 December 2011 | Published in Regional


Competition is fierce on the Dunheved Golf Club course in Sydney with Cook Islands master golfers from New Zealand, Cook Islands and Australia competing for top honours.

Elmay Viking, known in the region at the Pacific Tiger, is the current leader of the tournament carding 76 on day one on the 70 par course.

Viking, originally from Aitutaki and now based in Brisbane, is the top female golfer in the Cook Islands and recently won the bronze medal at the Pacific Games after a controversial rain out decision was made.

The youngster was leading the open womens division and had her name on the gold medal before the call was made to end the tournament due to rain.

Viking is also the defending open women masters champion.

The Aitutaki girl continues to improve her game and was matched on the Sydney green by fellow Team Cook Islands golfer Kirk Tuaiti also from Aitutaki.

Tuaiti carded 76 on day one.

Other results were Kurai Foster (93), June Webb (118), Darrell Brown (95), Edwin Utanga (90), Maara Kenning (86), John Kenning (100) and Stanley Urlich (79).

More results and images from the tournament are expected in the next day or two from organisers of the biannual tournament in Sydney.
