TOP FORM: Jordan Golding helped Bay of Plenty keep their unbeaten run going at the 2016 Toro Interprovincials in New Plymouth.

Bay of Plenty, Waikato and North Harbour all hold a one hundred per cent record after two days and four rounds of impressive golf of the Toro Interprovincials at the New Plymouth Golf Club.

The hugely talented but inexperienced Bay of Plenty team leads Division One by half a point from star-studded Waikato who are searching for their third consecutive Toro title.

Auckland can most likely cancel their weekend accommodation with their loss to Waikato as the extremely tough division one draw strikes early.

Today Bay of Plenty defeated Manawatu/Wanganui 3-2 in a tense affair with wins to Omanu pairing of Shaun Campbell and Jordan Golding the key factor, halved matches for Henry Spring and Landyn Edwards and a loss to No 1 William Howard.

In the afternoon matches, Bay of Plenty easily took care of Aorangi by 4 1/2 to 1/2 and will be confident of knocking over North Harbour in the only round of the day tomorrow morning.

Meanwhile, Canterbury maintain top spot in division two after defeating Tasman 4-1 this morning and securing a fighting halve against southern rivals Otago late in the day to hold a 1 ½ point lead in their division.

Wednesday results:

Bay of Plenty 3 Manawatu/Wanganui 2:
William Howard lost to Junior Tatana 2up, Henry Spring halved with Regan Cording, Landyn Edwards halved with Regan McConaghty, Shaun Campbell def Mike Atkins 6/5 Jordan Golding def Greg Shaw 6/5

Bay of Plenty 4 ½ Aorangi ½:
William Howard def Garth Simpson 6/5, Henry Spring def Jeff Hewitt 5/4, Landyn Edwards halved with Daniel Perham, Shaun Campbell def Nigel Heney 2/1, Jordan Golding def Regan Stills 6/5
