By TANYA WOOD ' With an ounce of luck it could have gone either way, but the whole team played for each other. ' Barry Harkerss, Canterbury team manager Canterbury took out the New Zealand Freyberg Masters golf title in style last week, while locals, Manawatu/ Wanganui, were just pipped to a medal placing, finishing fourth out of 15 teams. The national tournament, which attracts the country's best over-40s players, saw teams compete over five days in two round robin divisions at Levin Golf Club, the team with the most overall games taking home the silverware. Canterbury, which won the title for the fist time in the 26th year of the event, were undefeated in eight rounds, and set a tournament record with the most individual wins. Team manager Barry Harkerss said the win is a huge achievement'' for the team, but admitted you do need luck''. Their closest game was 3-2 against Waikato, but in their first round against home team Manawatu/Wanganui, three matches went down to the 18th hole, with Canterbury winning 4-1 in the end. With an ounce of luck it could have gone either way, but the whole team played for each other. If one guy was struggling, we made sure another team member stepped up to cover him so he didn't feel the pressure to win for the team, and just concen- trate on winning for himself.'' After the year's events in Christchurch, he said it prob- ably made the team focus on the golf. We all feel we're just so lucky.'' Harkerss said the tourna- ment was well run, and it showed the difference between a big city and rural community event where volunteers come out of the woodwork, and are just so giving of their time''. Manawatu/Wanganui team captain, and former Foxton Beach resident Malcolm Wells said it was definitely a good result for their team, tied with Otago in third place for over- all team matches won, but losing by three individual matches in the final count. An improvement on last year's fifth position, Wells said everyone played well as a team, which is half the battle''. The team included Keiran Corkill, from Waitarere Beach, and Stuart Smith, Glenn Neal, Martin Field and reserve Roddy McCabe, from the Manawatu/Wanganui districts. Hosts Levin Golf Club came in for high praise from New Zealand Golf operations manager Phil Aickin, who said the club had done every- thing you could expect and more'' from a New Zealand Golf perspective. He said the course was in superb'' condition, and rain had not impaired the greens. Trouncing was big surprise By BEN STRANG ' They were tied for second with us in the table, and I was thinking we needed to play well and maybe steal a win, but to thrash them is awesome. ' Jamie Atkinson, Paraparaumu captain Paraparaumu Beach have shone on the ten- nis courts for the sec- ond week in a row, dishing out a thrashing to third-placed Thorndon in the Wel- lington Premier 2 com- petition. Playing at Te Atiawa Park, Paraparaumu Beach fielded their top team on Saturday, and captain Jamie Atkinson was stunned by their performance. I wasn't really expecting that at all, that's for sure,'' he said of the 6-0 clean sweep. They were tied for second with us in the table, and I was thinking we needed to play well and maybe steal a win, but to thrash them is awesome. I'd take a thrashing win any day.'' Atkinson triumphed 6-3 7-6 in his singles match against Simon Brown, only Brown's second loss of the season, then combined with Stefan Knap for a three-set doubles victory. Knap won his singles 6-1 3-6 7-5, while Zach Whaanga won 6-2 6-2 in the number three match, and Conor Strang won 6-3 4-6 7-5 against last year's Thorndon first seed, Chris Schilling. Whaanga combined with Malcolm Perry to record a tight 7-6 7-6 victory. That's our top team. Malcolm is a doubles specialist and has played with Zach quite a bit, so they know each other's games,'' Atkinson said. Then we have Conor who can specialise in the singles, and he has been playing awesome so far this year.'' Paraparaumu Beach are outright second in Premier 2, two points behind leaders Tawa- Lyndhurst, while Thorndon are eight points back in third. The top four teams will play a promotion rele- gation round against the bottom four teams in Premier 1 at the start of next year.
