Ieremia smashes records with inaugural Christies Floorings Mount Open victories

Denzel Ieremia has broken all sorts of records on his way to claiming the Christies Floorings Mount Open on the Jennian Homes Charles Tour; his first win as a professional.

Ieremia has finished 29-under par over four rounds at the Mt Maunganui Golf Course to cruise to a seven-shot victory and smash the scoring record in a Jennian Homes Charles Tour event.

Ieremia began the day with a six-shot cushion over local professional and hometown favourite Mark Brown at 23-under, and says he had eyes all day at getting it to 30-under.

“I had in the back of my mind what everyone was doing around me, but I really tried to focus on myself and to keep making birdies so I could get it to 30-under.

“I came up just shy, but I played some tremendous golf all week so it’s hard to complain about that,” says a grinning Ieremia.

He was in a strong piece of form leading into the event with a tied for fifth at the Australian Open last week, and a sixth-place finish at the New South Wales Open the week prior.

He fired rounds of 64, 63, 66, and 66 to lift his first trophy as a professional and take a truckload of confidence into the Australian PGA next week.

“It’s a real honour coming back to these events and playing the way I did. I progressed through these tournaments as an amateur and I was able to learn off all the professionals that played only three or four years ago.

“To come back and hopefully be in a position to give back to the people I play with and to continue to learn to pretty special.

“I get to travel over to Australia next week knowing I’ve got what it takes to win, so hopefully I can keep making lots of birdies. We’ll see what happens,” Ieremia says.
