1992 New Zealand Open Championship

Paraparaumu Beach once again provided the venue on February 20 to 23. With Greg Turner sidelined with a wrist injury, he provided the T.V. commentary with nine times NZ Open winner Peter Thomson in an enthralling event which produced thirty-seven eagles, a hole in one and an albatross by the victor on the second day.

Australian Kenny led after the first round with 65 but the second day’s play was halted for two and a half hours due to rain and caused the eighteenth green to be lit with car headlights to complete the round, saw Fowler take a one-stroke lead from Kenny and Waite.

Davis dropped three strokes on the final two holes on day three, but was a big mover with 64, when Waite took a two stroke lead. A patient 69 on the final day saw the Kiwi victory that had eluded Frank Nobilo the year previously, with Grant Waite finishing one stroke better than the Paraparaumu Beach Open record of 269 by Corey Pavin in 1984.
