Most improved player

Junior golfer Anahera Stills Hindmarsh capped a memorable season by being named the club’s most improved player at Patutahi’s end-of-season prizegiving on Sunday.

The 13-year-old Gisborne Intermediate student collected several trophies, including the Tom Adams mixed pairs cup she won with father Tom Hindmarsh.

“Her confidence, youthfulness and natural ability to continue to learn the game has seen her handicap drop 10 strokes in the last year,” said club captain George Brown.

“We are expecting big things from her and like her father Tom, sister Calypso and cousin Regan, the Hindmarsh name will become another highly recognised golfing whanau in this region.”
