Congratulations to Michael Neels and partner John Kelly from Rotorua WINNERS today of the New Zealand Open Restricted Title 2016.
Here they are enjoying a well earned drink after their superb performance.
At lunchtime there was high hopes of a top 10 finish for all Cambridge pairs. Di and Jane won their morning session and moved into 9th with Kevin and Clare on 8th, and Michael and John in 3rd. Whilst Di and Jane lost ground in the afternoon finishing 14th, Clare and Kevin moved into 7th whilst Michael and John put in a fabulous 64.83% in the afternoon to take out the title by just 1.12%. This an amazing first for our club. CONGRATULATIONS MICHAEL!!
Just day 1 and Michael and his friend, John Kelly, are sitting 3rd half way through this four session event. And only a couple of percent behind sitting 6th are Kevin and Clare.
You have a great opportunity to play at the national congress this Sunday 25 September at 2.15pm.
For the first time - as far as any of us can recall - Cambridge had two pairs in the semi-finals and the winners of that round - Jane and Michael- went through to the final. Another Cambridge first!
