This afternoon, former University of Hawai’i golfer Nainoa Calip took a dip of a lifetime in the pool at Oahu Country Club.
As is tradition, the Hilo native was thrown into the water following the win, in which he took down former UH Hilo Vulcan Isaac Jauffers 6 and 5.
Match play win is the first for Calip this season, after finishing runner-up twice during the 2013-2014 campaign at UH.
After sinking a putt on the 30th hole of the day to move to 5 up with 6 holes to play, Jauffers hit a tee shot into the trees on the 31st to clinch it.
Calip has one semester left before graduation at UH. He hopes this win will catapult him into a professional career.
