Tower Masters, Women's Golf, Tee Off



Financial Services Giant TOWER, celebrates its twentieth year of New Zealand amateur golf sponsorship with the start of the annual TOWER Freyberg Masters in Wanganui today.

The Masters, the fifteen team provincial over-40 tournament, brings the best of New Zealand veteran golfing talent to the fore. Many former golfing internationals and New Zealand amateur champions represent their provinces in this top amateur golfing event.

Woman's Golf New Zealand is in its second week of the TOWER Gross Stableford Rosebowl national competition. Over 400 women's gold clubs, including New Zealand's leading Women's golfing rivals, vie for the provincial title during October and November around New Zealand. TOWER also sponsors the closest to the pin where the 1200 golfing individuals compete for the divisional prizes.

The TOWER Interprovincial Tournament is this year hosted by the Hamilton Golf Club, Tuesday 23 November to Saturday 27 November. The TOWER Tournament is New Zealand's leading amateur team tournament and TOWER's involvement has spanned the last twenty years.

In 1997 TOWER also introduced the Young Player of the Tournament Award, which recognises excellence in the TOWER Interprovincial Tournament and takes into account the stage a young golfer is at in his career at the time. Last year's player of the Tournament was Brad Shilton of the Waikato team. Brad was one of only three unbeaten players of the entire Tournament. The Waikato team's performance last year promises much for the 1999 TOWER Interprovincial as it is played on Waikato's home course, St Andrews.
