Auckland completes three-peat with comprehensive defeat of Bay of Plenty

6:42 am on 15 December 2013

The Auckland women's golf team has beaten Bay of Plenty 5-0 to win the New Zealand Interprovincial tournament.

The two-time defending champions completed one of the most dominant performances ever seen at the Muriwai Golf Club, winning the title for the third time in succession to extend their record number of wins in the event to 22 since the team's match-play competition began back in 1950.

Auckland are the first team to win three in a row in 30 years since Bay of Plenty - Thames Valley, who completed the feat in 1981 - 1983.

Auckland finished the week with a perfect winning record of eight from eight matches and an incredible 36.5 points from the 40 points on offer, which is believed to be an unprecedented winning record.
