The final outcome of the Carrus Tauranga Open was a double delight for Bay of Plenty golf fans.

Both Tauranga-based men's winner Mark Brown and women's champion Alanna Campbell from Omanu defended their titles in some style to end four rounds of low scoring at the Tauranga Golf Club yesterday.

Brown held off a fast finish from left hander Gareth Paddison, who had the day's low score of 63 to claim the season-long race to the Jennian Homes Trophy, to win by two shots.

Campbell stormed home in six-under 66 to equal the course record and win by a single stroke.

The super steady Brown looked unruffled during his fine six-under 65 to finish on 18-under for the tournament and win a record fourth Carrus Tauranga Open title.
