Nick Voke Wins the 68th Herman Sani Tournament
Nick Voke of New Zealand and Iowa State University
NORWALK, IA (August 13, 2017) - You would expect a Cyclone to storm back.
New Zealand’s Nick Voke, who just completed his eligibility at Iowa State University this spring, stormed back to win the 68th Herman Sani Tournament at Echo Valley Country Club.
Voke, who posted an impressive 66 (-5) in the final round, shot 204 (-9) over the three-day event to win by three over former teammate Denzel Ieremia.
“I struck the ball pretty well all week,” Voke said. “I did a little bit of work before today’s round trying to get the speed of the greens.”
Voke admitted that he didn’t even play a practice round, let alone have any prior experience at EVCC.
“I walked the course before round one,” Voke said. “I had a good game plan and was able to come away with (the win).”
Voke birdied three of the last four holes to pull away.
“I was able to make a nice putt on #17,” Voke said. “Then I made a seven-footer on #18 to finish.”
In the Senior Division Joe Palmer, who won the Senior Division in 2013, made birdie on the last hole to take home the title by a shot over Curtis Holck and Rob Dickerman.
Palmer finished at 210 (-3) for the event.
