Sam An and Rotorua's Victor Janin were next best on 66. There were another six players on 67 including Tauranga's European Tour player Josh Geary and Kieran Muir (Omokoroa).


Bateman fired nine birdies and a solitary bogey at the par three 14th hole to clinch the Mondiale Order of Merit. With five wins and three second placings he finished ahead of Mount Maunganui-resident Mark Brown and third placed Gareth Paddison.
