Early Report Capital Puma Open

Wayne Carey has defeated Peter Hunt 5 to 0 in the Capital Puma Open men's singles held at the Upper Hutt Cosmopolitan Club this evening. This result does not surprise me. I saw Wayne playing some fantastic darts at the North Island Masters last month even though he did not make the last 16. It shows you its all on the day. They could play it again tommorrow and get a different result.
Chrissy Hay defeated Selina Baker-Clemas in the ladies final.
Numbers were up on last year with some players travelling from Auckland, Christchurch and two from Australia. Great money was up for grabs.
I am not sure why they are still playing double starts in these events when any NZ team selected then goes off to play straight start events in Australia and the top man goes to England to do the same. If they went to a straight start some say they would get more NZDC players coming over to the Club NZ and DPNZ system. It will happen eventually I guess. Double start is a bit out of step with international darts. It can be a leveler if the better player can't start.
