WEATHER WASHES OUT FINAL ROUND
TJ KUA CHAMPION AFTER 36-HOLES

2016 MAUNA LANI RESORT HAWAII STATE OPEN

KOHALA COAST, HAWAII – DECEMBER 18, 2016 – In the last 12-hours both the North and South course at Mauna Lani received nearly two inches of rainfall creating unfavorable playing conditions for Round #3. At 9:45 AM, the tournament committee gathered all the players in Sunday’s round for a final update on the course conditions.

PGA of America – Aloha Section Executive Director, Wesley Wailehua, addressed the players with a heavy heart to announce the cancellation of the final round. The unfortunate weather conditions within the last 12-hours created course conditions that were both unpayable and unsafe for the field. With more severe weather forecasted for the afternoon, the decision was made to shorten the tournament to a 36-hole event.

Below is the final list of champions for the 2016 MAUNA LANI RESORT HAWAII STATE OPEN
