Hawaii Stroke Play: Toyama cruises to victory

OAHU, HI (March 16, 2008) -- Travis Toyama (2002 & 2005 Manoa Cup Champion, above) finished strong today to seal the deal closing with a tournament low round of 3-under par 69 and a total of 1-over par 289. Toyama, 21, is completing his eligibility as a University of Hawaii Men's Warrior golf team member this year and will be graduating in a year or two. Toyama said on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being the easiest and 10 the toughest tournament conditions, he gives the 2008 HSASPC an 8.

An 8 mainly because of the strong gusty winds which blew for the majority of the tournament causing havoc to all the players. The key to Toyama's victory he admitted was putting as he has been struggling with golf's smallest stroke for several years now. Lately he has been working on trying to redirect his "negative" thoughts to positive ones when standing over putts.

Toyama also said that the wind was indeed a factor but really didn't affect him as much as he was trying to roll the ball better in this tournament. The relentless wind finally let up a little late in the final round today and the field's scoring average was the lowest in all four days at 76.98. Neal Takara, the 36-hole leader closed with a 3-over par 75 and tied for the runner up spot with Chris Igawa who carded a 1-under par 71.

Takara & Igawa had tournament totals of 9-over par 297's respectively.
