Jun Ho Won Clenches the Individual Title at (-8) in the 2017 HHSAA David S. Ishii Foundation Boys Golf Championship at Ka’anapali Golf Courses. Team Iolani Holds Their Lead and Earns the 2017 Team Trophy!

2017 HHSAA/David S. Ishii Foundation Hawaii High School Boy's Golf Championship- Kaanapali Resort Golf Courses, May 4 & 5.

5.5.2017-- Lahaina, Maui, HI – Back for revenge after finishing T2 in the 2016 HHSAA State Tournament, Jun Ho Won (Moanalua) went birdie for birdie today on the Royal Ka’anapali Course, carding a (-4) for a 2-day total 67-67-134 (-8) and earning the 2017 Individual medal honors.  With six birdies on the front nine, Won was on fire and nothing was stopping him.  The Iolani team (shown above) held their first day lead and shot 294-300-594 to win by nine strokes over T2 Punahou and Moanalua.

Going into today’s final round, Won had a 2-shot lead over Mid Pac’s Zachary Kaneshiro and advanced his lead throughout the day, with no one within less than six shots off his lead. With a birdie right out of the gate on the first hole, Won continued to show his strength and steadiness with birdies on #4,6,7,8 and 9. He would card just one birdie on the back, along with 3 bogeys.  Won commented, “I played good this week, today I made some decent putts, my putting was definitely better today than yesterday.”  On the uphill par 3, 8th hole, Won hit his tee shot to within 12 feet of the pin and rolled a 3 ½ foot slider putt, breaking it right into the hole for a birdie. Won was the only player to finish both rounds under par this week.  “I had fun this week with my team, we played well as a team – the greens were faster today, but we hung in there.”  Won is a senior at Moanalua and will play on the Boise State golf team later this fall.

Moanalua teammate AJ Teraoka finished (-1) today for 2nd place overall (+2). “My goal today was to do way better than yesterday – go as low as possible,” Teraoka said. He made an eagle on #13, a 390 yard par 4 and commented, “I hit my driver good, right up the middle and then I had maybe 105 yards uphill to the pin – I hit a full 50 degree wedge and I didn’t even know it was in the hole until I started walking up close to the hole.  One of the guys there told me it landed about four feet behind the hole and spun back and went in.” He added, “I was like, wow, that is cool.”   Teraoka commented on the tournament, “The course was in a great shape, the greens were rolling really nice – overall this was a great tournament – I had a lot of fun with the team this week, we tried hard today and came up short (for the team win) but we tried.”

Andrew Chin, a senior at Punahou showed some firepower of his own today on the front nine, with two eagles on the first and fourth holes.  “On the first hole, I hit driver out there and then 3-wood to about eight feet, making the left center putt,” said Chin.  He added, “I was pretty happy to start the round off like that and I knew I needed to capitalize on that start.” Chin, in addition to the two eagles, made four birdies on the front nine, but would give some of that back on the back nine to shoot one under for the day and +4 for the tournament (76-70-146) tying him with Iolani’s William Asai (72-74-146).   Chin said, “I wanted to go out on a good note – yesterday I didn’t play as well so today, I wanted to give it my best, especially for the team.” He added, “They’re all good players (my teammates), I’m a little disappointed we didn’t win the team title but we still had a great week here at Ka’anapali.”  Chin will attend BYO (Utah) in the fall and play on the golf team.

Maui High’s Jordan Terada shot 74-73-146 for the tournament, putting him at 5th place overall and Maui’s top finisher.  Zachary Kaneshiro (Mid Pac) who was in second place after round one, finished T6 overall, tied with Remington Hirano (Punahou) and Andrew Otani (Iolani).

Iolani took home their first team trophy in eight years (previously won at Ka’anapali in 2009) with a nine-stroke win over Punahou and Moanalua T2. Iolani Head Coach Glenn Inouye said, “It was really amazing what these kids were able to do this week, I am really surprised in a lot of ways, I am very proud of them.” This was Iolani’s best two days total for the entire 2017 season. Inouye continued, “Both William and Andrew coming into this season were shooting in the 80’s and they have really worked so hard with the other coaches - I am really proud of them and happy for them.”  As a team “They all came together at just the right time this week - we’ve been stressing to them all season and especially this week about making sure to finish well.  After seeing the (Iolani) girls team falter on the final few holes earlier this week (and lose the team trophy by one stroke), we learned from that and used it as motivation to battle to the end today.” Complete full field scores now posted click here to see.

Claire Choi wins in a Sudden-Death Playoff during the 2017 HHSAA David S. Ishii Foundation Golf Championship at Ka’anapali Golf Courses Punahou Defends their Title and Takes Home the Team Trophy!

2017 HHSAA/David S. Ishii Foundation Hawaii High School Girl's Golf Championship- Kaanapali Resort Golf Courses, May 1 & 2.

5.2.2017-- Lahaina, Maui, HI – The Royal Ka’anapali Course is a true championship course, that has tested the likes of golf’s greatest legends and today, it did not disappoint.  The last two holes challenged even the best players today and force a sudden-death playoff between Thereese Guzman and Claire Choi.  Choi would come up with the tiebreaker win and take home the individual trophy in the 2017 HHSAA David S. Ishii Foundation Girls Golf Championship.  Team Punahou (pictured above) came from a 10-stroke deficit after round one to secure the team win for 2017 today.

Choi who posted a round of 74 (+3) today had the second best score of the day to finish off the tournament 76-74-150.  Choi struggled a bit on the front nine but played steady on the back, with a birdie on 13 and just one bogey on 17.  Guzman at 75-75-150 was a little up and down today on the front, gaining some momentum on the back nine until missing a 4-foot putt on 18th to force the playoff with Choi. The 413 yard, par 4 finishing hole at Ka’anapali was said to be “one of the toughest finishing holes on Tour” by the legendary Arnold Palmer and today it played an average of 5.94 (+1.94).

In the playoff, both Guzman and Choi had decent drives off the tee over the Ka’anapali lagoon with second shots landing in the fairway, playing it safe on the par 5 first hole (502 yards).  Guzman’s third shot landed in the greenside bunker and her fourth shot left her with a 12-footer for par.  Choi landed her third shot on the green and two putted for par.  Guzman would miss the par putt and come up just short to concede the playoff to Choi.

Guzman was the 2017 Maui Interscholastic League Champion and Maui High’s only competitor this week at the State Championship.  Guzman commented on the day, “My regular round today was okay, I got a lot of up-and-downs and was glad about that – my putting was pretty good, but I kept leaving my birdie putts short.”  She added, “I was really happy about #17 today – yesterday I bogeyed that hole and today I learned from that mistake and I was able to make par.”  As for the playoff, Guzman said, “On my approach into the green, I had the right club but I had a little mental block and instead of backing away and resetting, I went ahead with the shot.  I should have reset but maybe my nerves got the better of me.  Claire is a great player, she had won Tournament of Champions and the ILH Individuals this year and I think I let that get to me a bit in the playoff, but I definitely learned from this experience.”  This summer, Guzman plans to compete in several Hawaii State and mainland tournaments.

Choi, who clinched the playoff with a 4-foot putt for par, helped Punahou earn the Team win today.  Choi is a junior and this was her third year playing on the Varsity 1 Team and third time at States.  Choi commented on the tournament, “I had a lot of fun playing in this tournament at Ka’anapali – the golf course was in great shape.  I tried to play the smartest, safest golf possible because it was such a challenging course – you can’t be too aggressive out there.”  As for the win Choi added, “The competition was great this week and it was definitely not easy – with this win, I would like to thank Coach Ed and Coach Victor who helped me out on the course, and also my swing coach, Robert Respecio and Coach Bryce for all they have done to help me with my game.”

Going into this tournament, Punahou had won nine of the last 10 Girls State Golf Championships, Iolani earning the 2012 trophy on Kauai to break Punahou’s championship run. Tournaments at Ka’anapali quite often come down to the last few holes so it was still anyone’s trophy to take coming into the final stretch. Choi’s 74 today, combined with Kaitlyn Tonai’s 81 and Kaylee Akagi’s 82 allowed for a 242-237-479 finish (+53), one stroke ahead of Team Iolani at 232-248-480 (+54).  Tonai finished T14, Akagi; fellow teammates Alison Takamiya and Isabelle Won both finished T17 and Avery Kageyama finished T34.

Punahou Golf Director and former PGA General Manager at Ka’anapali Golf Courses, Ed Kageyama comments, “The girls played great, they hung in there today. We were trailing by 10 strokes going into the final round, but the girls played hard to the end and we got lucky.” Kageyama added, “As always, Ka’anapali is in great shape, it is a great venue for tournament golf and the staff does a great job of preparing the course and running this event - the kids are lucky to be able to experience such a high quality event in their high school careers.”

Iolani struggled today as a team (+35), with nerves getting the better of them during the final round. Kamie Hamada who was T1 going into today’s final round, fell eight spots back today to finish T9 at 160. Teammates Kristin Miyagi and Naomi Wong both finished T9 at 160 for the tournament.  Kalani High finished in third place with a team 487 (+61) with Team leader Miki Manta taking T6 overall.

Allysha Mae Mateo of Maryknoll posted the low round today at 72 (+1) and finished in 3rd place with 80-72-152. Malia Nam of Kaiser finished 4th with 153 and Kaley Ann Saludares of Waiakea finished 5th with 156. Complete full field scores now posted click here to see.
