Golf: Yamauchi upset at Manoa Cup
Three Big Island golfers were eliminated from match play in the Hawaii State Golf Association’s Manoa Cup on Tuesday at Oahu Country Club in Honolulu.
Chris Shimomura, who is from Lahaina, Maui, but played for the University of Hawaii at Hilo last season, beat Keegan Loo 6 and 5 to advance to the round of 32, where he will face Zachary Braunthal.
Nainoa Calip of Pahoa won 4 and 3 over Lion Rogers. A Kamehameha Hawaii grad who recently wrapped up his golfing career at the University of Hawaii, Calip will play Scott Ichimura today.
Nick Matsushima, a Manoa Cup runner-up in 2012 who will be a senior at UH-Hilo, rebounded from a rough opening day for a 1-up victory over Sj Maeng. Matsushima will face Remington Hirano this morning.
The No. 13 seed was unlucky for Dalen Yamauchi of Hilo. The UH-Hilo golfer was upset by No. 52 Alice B. Kim, who won 2 up.
Kailua-Kona’s Loi Chang-Stroman was beaten by Isaac Jaffurs, 4 and 2.
Shon Katahira, who will be a junior at Waiakea High School, lost 3 and 1 to Scotty Yamashita.
