Defending Champion Ma eliminated in 105th Manoa Cup

Oahu Country Club

By Paul Ogawa

The round of 32  is complete for the 105th Manoa Cup, the Hawaii State Amateur Match Play Championship, at Oahu Country Club.

There were a few upsets today, most notably, #1 seed and defending champion Matthew Ma lost his match to the #32 seed Kyosuke Hara, 6 & 4.  Hara played superb golf birdieing 5 holes on the front 9 and led the match 6up after 9 holes.  Ma fought back birdieing 10 and 13, but could not overcome Hara’s lead.

5 of the top 10 seeds are still in the field and will be battling to win tomorrow’s matches to hopefully make their way to the final match on Saturday.  There aren’t any past champions still in the field, so we will be having a “first time” champion of the Manoa Cup for 2013.
