Dr. McKenna’s group finds the cure

Dr. Gerald McKenna, along with Kaua’i Junior Golfers, Travis Toguchi and Rae-Lyn Morikawa, found the right medicine for the victory at the annual Doctor’s Cup Golf Tournament held at the Kaua’i Lagoons Mokihana Golf Course.

The three top finishers shot a 62.

The 11th annual event pairs junior golfers with doctors from Kaua’i Medical Clinic, Wilcox Health System, and KVMH in a team scramble format.

Both divisions played to a par 72 course.

Ipo Yoshioka, Noel Torres, Kelli Oride, and Tyler Costa came up with the second best score (63).

Dr. Mike Braun, Grant Paiste, Kyle Groves, and Micah Yoshioka finished in third place with a 64.

They were followed by Dr. Roger Netzer, Nikko Tacsiat, Reyn Morioka, and Byron Rualizo (64), Dr. Larry McKnight, Sean Ogawa, Troy Jacintho, and Jon Furusho (65), Dr. Bill Bodenstab, Wiley Yoshioka, Malia Saiki, and Ryan Wong (66), Dr. Mariano Torres, Bubby Saiki, Braeden Robley, and Cory Oride (66), Dr. Tad Jackson, Mike Garcia, Kai Adachi, and Levi Miyashiro (67).

Dr. Jim McGreevy, Lowen Gonzales, Otis Llewellyn, and Gino Tacsiat won the nine hole and nine hole putting tournament with a 63.

Dr. Jim Lin, Mariah Paiste, Steven Braun, Kaiton Sawada, and Joni Hashizume finished in second place with a 70.
