Oahu Country Club, June 9 - 14.
6.13.2014-- The 36 hole final match at
Oahu Country Club to crown the 106th Manoa Cup
(Hawaii State Amateur Match Play Championship)
completed today as #22 defeated #40 6 & 5.
The final match presented #40 Isaac
Jaffurs against #22 Nainoa Calip in a battle between two very
soft spoken golfers, but both had superb golf games that spoke
plenty for them as they hit quality shot after shot during the
week. Both golfers played college golf for the University of
Hawaii golf teams: Jaffurs for UH Hilo and Calip for UH Manoa.
started the match birdieing holes #1, 2 & 5 to go 3up on Jaffurs
and the golfers halved 9 of the last 10 holes of the first 18
holes. Calip then eagled the 20th hole and birdied
the 23rd hole to lead the match 5up. Jaffurs fought
back winning the 24th, 25th and 29th
holes, but Calip then won the 30th and 31st
hole to close out the match 6 & 5.
s a huge thank you to
the Oahu Country Club members and staff for allowing them to
host this prestigious tournament at their club and for their
help with the live hole by hole scoring for selected matches
during the week. Also big thank you goes out to the HSGA
directors and volunteers for assisting as well.
