DEAN WILSON CAPTURES SECOND TITLE IN THREE YEARS AT THE HAWAII STATE OPEN!

2014 Mauna Lani Resort Hawaii State Open- Mauna Lani Golf Courses, December 12 - 14.

12.14.2014-- KOHALA COAST, HAWAII – December 14, 2014 - It was another unpredictable day at the final round of the Mauna Lani Resort Hawaii State Open. Gusty conditions and stiff competition didn’t stop Dean Wilson (pictured) from winning his second title in the past three years.  Wilson’s loss in the playoff to Nick Mason last year proved to be just the medicine he needed to sink a 12-foot birdie putt on the final hole today to avoid another playoff and win by a stroke.  Wilson finished the day at even par 72, 4-under par 212 (70-70-72) for the tournament, one stroke better than Sun Il Jung (71-74-68) and Ryan Heisey (70-74-69) and takes home the $10,000 first place prize. Robby Ormand of Austin, Texas, finished in solo fourth at 1-under par 215 with low amateur, John Oda at 1-over par 217.

13-year old Titan Oshura shot his low round of the week 77 to finish T34 (235) in his first Hawaii State Open appearance.

In the Senior Open division, second round co-leader and Olomana Golf Club professional Casey Nakama steadied his play to shoot a final round 73 (216) to finish six shots ahead of amateur Mike Kawate (222).  PGA professionals Jeff Coston and Kevin Hayashi tie for third at 7-over par 223.

David Long continued his stellar play to win by eight shots (243) in the A-Flight division over Brad Ching (251).

Punahou School junior Allisen Corpuz swept the Women’s Open division in a wire-to-wire finish with a two-shot victory (236) over Big Island-native Kimberly Kim (238).

12.13.2014-- KOHALA COAST, HAWAII – December 13, 2014 - Blustery conditions with winds up to 50 miles per hour tamed the 165-person field at the Mauna Lani Resort Hawaii State Open.  Red numbers were scarce in the second round with an array of shots failing to find the bottom of the cup.

In the Senior Open division, amateur Mike Kawate (72-71) and former champion Casey Nakama (71-72) lead the field at 1-under par, 143 for 36 holes.  First round leader Kevin Hayashi fell back with a second round 79, for a 4-over par total 148, tie for third with PGA professional Scott Simpson (70-78).  2015 Champions Tour National Qualifier Jeff Coston is in solo fifth (72-77) with a 149 total.

Kyle Suppa Earns Spot in 2015 Sony Open in Hawaii!

2015 Sony Open in Hawaii Qualifier for Governor John A. Burns Challenge Cup Amateurs- Waialae Country Club, November 24.

11.24.2014-- Heavy rain in the early morning softened up the course at beautiful Waialae Country Club, but strong gusty winds followed that helped to dry things out.  Our victorious 12 man amateur team of our Governor John A. Burns Challenge Cup now competed against one another for a single exemption spot to play in the upcoming PGA Tour’s 2015 Sony Open in Hawaii.

Four players bested par today with rounds of 71, 71, 69 and 66.  Tyler Ota and Corey Kozuma finished at T3 with 1-under par 71’s, while Punahou’s 15 year old Andrew Chin posted a great round of 69 with 5 birdies and 2 bogeys to finish runner up.  But it was Waialae’s own 16 year old Kyle Suppa (pictured) who posted a superb bogey free round of 66, receiving the single exemption to play in the 2015 Sony Open in Hawaii.  Congratulations Kyle!

Suppa won the Hawaii State Amateur stroke play championship earlier in the year by 6 strokes over the nearest competitor, won the Francis Brown Four Ball team match play championship and had a great Challenge Cup last week going undefeated in his 3 matches.  He has also finished the 2013-14 season with the most points amongst all of the amateurs in he Governor’s Cup points system, thereby receiving the HSGA’s 2014 Player of the Year honors.  Today’s performance was a great way to cap off a great year and will be a great way for Suppa to test his skills against the top players in the world with the support of the people of Hawaii at the 2015 Sony Open in Hawaii.
