SAWADA CAPTURES 59TH MID-PACIFIC OPEN




LANIKAI, HAWAII – APRIL 23, 2017 – After a weekend of less than ideal weather, the clouds finally cleared for a day of fierce competition in the final round of the 2017 MID-PACIFIC OPEN. Clear skies and light winds proved to be the perfect stage for some exciting golf, as past UH teammates TJ Kua and Jared Sawada battled it out to the end, resulting in the need for a playoff. After sticking the pin on the first playoff hole, Sawada would sink his putt on 18 to capture the 2017 MID-PACIFIC OPEN title. With a tournament total of (66-68-72-70=276), Sawada’s efforts this week helped him come from behind to win the title, earning a cash prize of $14,000.
In Championship Flight, Tyler Ota edged out Zackary Kaneshiro to take the title, posting a 1-over (73) and a tournament total of (286).

Rusty Santiago finished at (324) to win the title as A-Flight Champion. Santiago proved victorious in a competitive field, with only four strokes separating 1st and 4th place. In B-Flight, David Lee posted a 10-over (82) to win the division. In our Senior Professional Division competition, David Ishii, PGA held on to four day lead after carding a 2-over (74) in the final round. Doug Banks won the Senior Amateur Division finishing at (303).

On behalf of the ALOHA SECTION PGA and the MID-PACIFIC OPEN Tournament Committee, we would like to thank the players for their continued support and patience throughout the past week. The weather proved to be quite a challenge, but we hope the experience was a positive one for all.

We would also like to extend a warm mahalo to the members of Mid-Pacific Country Club for sharing their golf course with all of us the last five days. We look forward to having you join us again in April 2018 for the 60th MID-PACIFIC OPEN.
