The final match-up for the 106th Manoa Cup has been set.

Hawaii's oldest golf tournament started Wednesday at Oahu Country Club with 64 competitors from across the state.

In the quarterfinals, Jaffurs defeated Cole Shintaku to advance to the semi-finals. The Vulcan went on to knock-off Doug Williams, winning holes 14 and 15 to close out the match.

Nainoa Calip sailed to the final round, first taking down Kengo Aoshima in the quarterfinals.
