6:43 am on 2 December 2009

Hawkes Bay and Otago are the only two teams with maximum points going into the second day of the national mens inter-provincial golf championships in Palmerston North.

On a water-logged opening day at the Manawatu golf club which didn't end until 8 o'clock last night after several suspensions in play, Hawkes Bay toppled Waikato 4-1 and the favourites Auckland 3-2, while Otago beat Aorangi and Northland.

The strong Wellington five were held to a draw by Taranaki after having a first round bye.
