Meti is known for breaking back-to-back World Drive Records of 408 and 414
between the years of 2017 and 2019 respectively.For the 32 year old, beating her initial milestone was not only a significant personal achievement but was ground-breaking in the history of women’s division golf.
“It is an honour to be wearing the Pacific Resort Hotel Group logo again on my shirt for the 2020 World Long Drive season. I’m excited to get back out there and represent our small nation with a local brand that supports one of their own”, Meti says.
Both PRHG and Meti are recognised in the community for investing in and encouraging the development of young Cook Islanders. Meti’s passion for golfing paired with her success at this age is a powerful example for many youth and her sport has become a useful vehicle for her to help inspire young people around the world,
“There’s nothing like helping your own at home – whether it be to encourage using our land to cultivate for a living, promote healthier living or hitting a golf ball as far as possible. I am a proud Cook Islander and I love my people” she says.
With PRHG at Meti’s side in 2020, all are cheering for another successful year forthe Cook Islands reigning female golf champion.
