MASON, CALIP PREVAIL
Professional Nick Mason made eight birdies en route to a final-round 7-under-par 64 yesterday to successfully defend his title at the 12th annual Hilo Invitational Pro-Am and Golf Tournament.
Mason, a former Hawai'i-Hilo standout, finished with a two-round total of 9-under 133 to beat first-round leader Jarett Hamamoto (70) by four strokes. Kevin Shimomura finished third with 69—138.
Mason offset a bogey on the 10th hole when he three-putted with birdies at Nos. 1, 3, 6, 8, 9, 12, 14 and 16.
"Yesterday, I had a lot of left-to-right putts. I couldn't make any of them," said Mason, who became the first three-time winner of the tournament. "Today, I tried to give myself better putts by hitting it to correct side of the hole."
Kamehameha-Hawai'i junior Nainoa Calip beat Kellen-Floyd Asao with a 15-foot birdie putt on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to win the amateur division.
Calip (71) and Asao (68) finished 36 holes at 3-under 139. UHH golfer Zadi Ari placed third with 69—140.
