New Zealand Golf names Eisenhower team
New Zealand Golf has named Joshua Munn (Manawatu), Tae Koh (Manukau) and Vaughan McCall (Gore) as the team to contest the 29th Eisenhower World Teams Championship in Japan.
The Eisenhower will be staged at the Oshitate Course and Iriyama Course of the Karurizawa Golf Club from September 11-14.
The Kiwis will look to follow in the footsteps of Michael Campbell, Phil Tataurangi, Grant Moorhead and Stephen Scahill who won the Eisenhower Trophy in Canada in 1992.
All three players have good experience on the international stage and form ahead of the event.
Auckland golfer Koh will make his debut for New Zealand. He made a name for himself in January when he became only the third Kiwi golfer to win the Australian Amateur Championship.
Munn has also been a standout in recent times. The 23-year-old from the Manawatu Golf Club secured what he called "the biggest win of my career" when he claimed the NZ Amateur.
McCall is the most experienced of the three players. In 2012 he announced himself on the local scene when he was the first golfer to win both the New Zealand Amateur and the New Zealand Stroke Play titles in the same year, for 24 years.
