On Sunday, Trust House Wairarapa hosts Wellington under-18 on the Rathkeale Oval. Play starts at 10.30am. Champ shear magic Made of iron: Carterton triathlete Marilyn Morrison completed the world's most prestigious Ironman race last weekend. Morrison completed the Ironman World Champs in Kona, Hawaii in 12 hours and 52 minutes. She completed the 3.8-kilometre swim in 1.22.58, the 180km bike ride in 6.18.29 and the 42.2km run in 4.56.28. She was 26th in the women's 50 to 54 age group. Morrison is a member of Shear Magic Masterton Masters Swimming Club. Golfer hits form Masterton golfer Ben Campbell will be looking to continue his remark- able comeback from injury when he plays for New Zealand in the inaug- ural Four Nations Cup in Arrowtown this week. The 20-year-old from Masterton Golf Club joins up with countrymen Ryan Fox (Royal Auckland), Mathew Perry (Hamilton) and Vaughan McCall (Gore). After a strong show- ing at the Asian Amateur Champion- ship last week in Singapore, the New Zealand team is optimistic about its chances on The Hills course. Campbell was the leading light at the Singapore Island Country Club after coming close to winning the title, and securing an invite to the Masters in April, before finishing third. It was a impressive perform- ance only seven weeks after surgery on an abnormal bone growth in his foot. The Four Nations Cup is an amal- gamation of two tournaments, the Four Nations (between New Zealand, Australia, Japan and Canada) and the Southern Cross Cup (between New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and Argentina) into one stroke play event. The four international teams -- New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and Argentina -- are made up of four male players, and the best three scores count each day. One round of golf will be played each day for four days. New Zealand No 1 Fox, 24, who is preparing to turn professional at the end of this year, finished in a share of 17th place in Singapore. The Royal Auck- land member hopes to bow out of international teams golf in style. We have a very experienced team, and we are all in form after the Asian Amateur, so we have a really good chance next week,'' he says.
