Bowen edges out Ishii

Elleair pro Brad Bowen won the Aloha Section PGA Senior Professional Championship by a shot over David Ishii Tuesday.

Bowen opened with a 67 Monday at Turtle Bay's Palmer Course, then shot a 1-over 73 at the resort's Fazio Course to capture the $1,000 first prize. Ishii shot 72 and finished at 141.

Hapuna's Jay Taise (72--143) took third and Larry Stubblefield (70--144) shot the day's low round to claim fourth. Hilo Muni's Lance Taketa (73--145) was fifth, followed by Poipu Bay's Craig Sasada (74--146).

Bowen, Taise, Taketa and Sasada are the Hawaii qualifiers for the Southworth Senior PGA Professional National Championship.

Koga holds share of lead

State high school champion Eimi Koga has a share of the individual lead and Hawaii is a shot out of first after Tuesday's first round of the Girls Junior America's Cup, at Genoa Lakes Golf Course, in Genoa, Nev. Hawaii won last year by three shots over Oregon.

Koga, a Moanalua junior, shot a 3-under-par 69. It was one of just four sub-par scores the first day. She parred the first 10 holes, then had four birdies and a bogey on the back.

'Iolani senior Marissa Chow shot 74 and is tied for 11th, followed by Punahou junior Kacie Komoto (78) and Punahou senior Margaret Min (81).

Hawaii's team total of 221 (best three-of-four scores) trails Northern and Southern California going into today's second round. There are 18 teams from the U.S., Canada and Mexico playing.

The final round is Thursday. The Boys Junior America's Cup opens today in Colorado.
