Ryan Chisnall makes Eisenhower Trophy golf team


Greenacres golfer Ryan Chisnall has been named in the New Zealand Eisenhower Trophy team to play in Mexico in September.

Chisnall will be joined by Auckland’s Nick Voke and Waikato’s Luke Toomey.

Chisnall is excited to get the opportunity.

“It feels pretty awesome, to receive those type of phone calls never gets old but for something like this is an awesome experience. It’s something you work towards for many years so it’s great to finally be named,” said Chisnall.

“I have had some cool moments in my career, but to represent New Zealand at the highest level has always been a dream of mine so to get the big phone call was a huge buzz.”

The Eisenhower Trophy is a biennial world amateur team event  that was first played in 1958.

New Zealand won the tournament in 1992 with the team of Phil Tataurangi, Michael Campbell, Grant Moorhead and Stephen Scahill.
