The number of rounds in the 60s in ILH competition doubled on Wednesday, when two boys took advantage of the conditions in the league’s fourth tournament.

Punahou senior Andrew Chin shot his second sub-70 round in three starts with a 67 at Hawaii Prince on Wednesday, the lowest score in the ILH this year. Chin opened the season with a 69 at Mililani.

Teammate Remington Hirano finished two strokes back on the Ewa plains for his lowest score of the year after a 73 at Mililani and a 77 at Olomana.


Punahou junior Evan Kawai was the only other boy to break par, shooting a season-low 70.

Iolani’s Kengo Aoshima is the only other ILH boy with a round in the 60s, carding a 68 at Olomana on March 10. Aoshima shot a 73 on Wednesday and is the clubhouse leader with a 72.5 average after four events, the minimum number required in the standings.


Chin, Hirano and Kawai have all played three rounds. The next event is on March 20 at Pearl Country Club.

The girls also took advantage of the conditions at Hawaii Prince on Wednesday, with Iolani junior Kamie Hamada firing a 72 to beat the field by four strokes.


It was the lowest score in the ILh this season, beating the mark of 73 by Hamada at Leilehua and Kamehameha’s Lori Char at Olomana.

Hamada leads the season standings with a 74.75 average after four events.
