2016 Hawaii State Open- Mauna Lani Resort, December 16 & 18.

12.18.2016-- KOHALA COAST, HAWAII – DECEMBER 18, 2016 – In the last 12-hours both the North and South course at Mauna Lani received nearly two inches of rainfall creating unfavorable playing conditions for Round #3. At 9:45 AM, the tournament committee gathered all the players in Sunday’s round for a final update on the course conditions.

PGA of America – Aloha Section Executive Director, Wesley Wailehua, addressed the players with a heavy heart to announce the cancellation of the final round. The unfortunate weather conditions within the last 12-hours created course conditions that were both unpayable and unsafe for the field. With more severe weather forecasted for the afternoon, the decision was made to shorten the tournament to a 36-hole event.

All of the champions were recognized during an awards ceremony held just before noon at the clubhouse. As we wrap up another year we look forward to returning to MAUNA LANI in 2017 to host another Hawaii State Open on the emerald fairways of the Francis H. I’i Brown championship North and South course. TJ Kua carded rounds of 69 and 68 for a 36-hole total of 7-under par 137 to win the crown and professional David Fink was the runner up at 6-under par 138.
