PNG bags bronze in men’s golf comp

The PNG golf team missed out on the gold and silver but Morgan Annato’s impressive performance in the bronze medal play-off against New Caledonia was the talk of the afternoon.

New Caledonia was leading after round three of the men’s competition but was knocked back to the bronze play-off against Annato, who was running on the third spot.

Going neck-to-neck, the two men had to break the tie in the end but the winds were in PNG’s favour as Annato gave Morgan Dufour a good run, sinking the ball on the third tier to claim bronze for PNG.

PNG also won a silver each in the men's individual and team events.

In the women’s team event, New Caledonia bagged gold whilst PNG and Fiji got silver and bronze respectively.

For the men’s team, New Caledonia took out gold, PNG silver and Fiji bronze.
