5:58 pm on 9 October 2009

Teenager Erin Hawe has made the biggest putt of her young career to ensure Waikato won through to the semifinals in the Women's Interprovincial golf champs in Auckland.

Hawe sank a 3m par putt on the 17th hole for the 2 and 1 victory over Phoebe Perrin of Northland to give Waikato the overall honours 3-2 in their winner-take-all section play match at The Grange Golf Club.

This earned Waikato the chance to defend their national title when they come up against Auckland in one semifinal tomorrow while unbeaten North Harbour meet Bay of Plenty in the other semifinal.
