BOTANY’S Wenyung Keh has blown away her nearest rivals in the Barfoot and Thompson Akarana Women’s Open in brutal conditions at the Akarana Golf Club. While conditions had been conducive to good scoring over the first three rounds, Sunday was a different story with strong gusty winds challenging the field. Keh, representing Pakuranga Golf Club, headed into the final round with a six-shot lead but gave the chasing pack, including older sister Munchin Keh and New Zealand stroke play and amateur champion Julianne Alvarez, no chances signing for a one over par 73, which given the conditions was an excellent round of golf. Showing few nerves with the lead Wenyung Keh immediately birdied the first hole to give her nearest rivals the message that chasing her down wouldn’t be easy. Wenyung made the turn at two-under par, as did Alvarez who now loomed as the player with the best chance to challenge Wenyung as Munchin had faulted on the front nine with three bogeys and a double bogey. Alvarez made a run with birdies on the 11th and 12th but then double bogeyed the 13th hole. Sensing her chance, Wenyung then closed the door, eagling the 14th hole and ensuring that the last four holes would be a walk in the park. She had the breathing space to be able to bogey the last hole and still head the field by an impressive seven shots. In the end the margin of the victory surprised her. “ When I’m in front and in the lead I don’t really think about the scores, I just try to play my own game and the conditions are the same for everyone. “I felt that I was struggling with my long game coming into this week, but I managed to keep my ball in play well. Keeping it simple too was very important. “ The conditions [on Sunday] were much windier, the eighth hole was so difficult and Julianne and Munchin got the water on that hole. I tried not to think about the others too much and it was good to hit the 14th hole in two and make eagle.” The win made it back-to-back victories on the Charles Tour for Wenyung, having also taken out the Lawnmaster Classic last month. She will give her rivals a chance in the Autex Muriwai Open next week as she is unable to play due to university exams. Her next outing will be in New Zealand colours at the Queen Sirikit Cup in Hong Kong where she will be joined by Alvarez and Munchin Keh, which looks to be a formidable side based on the current form all three are showing.

Racing minister Nathan Guy has announced the establishment of a working group to examine the growing number of Kiwis using offshore gambling sites. “ The TAB is operated by the New Zealand Racing Board and has a national monopoly on all racing and sports betting,” says Mr Guy. “ The Racing Board is required by law to distribute all profits from this betting back to the racing industry, which relies on these distributions to survive. National sporting organisations also receive a percentage of sports betting turnover.” “ When New Zealanders place their sports and racing bets with overseas betting operators online, they operate outside of our regulatory framework. This means that offshore organisations make money on New Zealand racing and sports without paying their fair share of tax, or making contributions back to the racing industry or sporting organisations that make the betting possible in the first place. “ These New Zealanders are also operating outside the safety net of gambling harm mitigation that we have here.” Mr Guy says the working group is the first real attempt to clarify the extent of the problem and work towards developing solutions. “ The racing industry contributes about $1.6 billion to New Zealand’s GDP, is a major source of employment supporting over 17,000 full time jobs across the country, and has a particularly strong presence in our regions,” says Mr Guy. “Given the global trend towards online betting, this issue will continue to grow and needs to be addressed now. The working group will commence this month and report back with recommendations for the minister later this year.
