Hawaii State Amateur: Comeback Win for Tyler Ota
By 808Golf.com and the Hawaii Golf Association
HSGA completed our 55th Hawaii State Amateur Stroke Play Championship at Pearl Country Club, site since 1987. In the Men’s Open division, Chris Vandette from Golf Canada started the day with a 4-shot lead and was looking to run away with the tournament, but HSGA's 2015, 16 & 17 player of the year Tyler Ota dug deep and had a fantastic final round of 5-under par 67 to come from behind and win the tournament by 2-strokes. Ota's final score was 11-under par 277. Congrats Tyler! Pictured above champion Tyler Ota left and tournament director Jay Hinazumi right.
Here are the rest of our winners of each division:
Mid-Amateur- Shawn Sakoda- +4, 292 over 72-holes
Women’s Open- Kyung Eun Lee- +18, 306 over 72-holes.
Men’s Senior- Mike Kawate- Even par, 216 over 54-holes.
HSGA sends a big mahalo to Pearl Country Club and their staff for hosting this tournament since 1987 and a huge thank you to our HSGA staff and volunteers for their support over the past 4 days.
HSGA would also like to thank the players and coaches from Hochi, Japan and Golf Canada for flying thousands of miles to join them in this tournament for great competition and camaraderie.
Mahalo to all and thank you for supporting amateur golf at its highest level in Hawaii!
