Congratulations to all for an outstanding GBSSA Championship tournament today at Tangle Creek Golf and Country Club. The weather, despite an ominous forecast, held up throughout the main tournament. But when we needed to go to a playoff to determine our 2nd individual OFSAA qualifier for the second consecutive year, we went from dry on Hole #1, to drizzle on Hole #2, to full-on rain on Hole #3, to finally near-monsoon conditions on playoff Hole #4…
…which was won by Jack Alward of Jean Vanier in Collingwood, who outlasted Parker Lee of Eastview and Joe MacNeil from Patrick Fogarty, after they all tied with outstanding rounds of 2-over 74. He will be joining last year’s champion Abe Holmes from Barrie North, who will be heading to OFSAA once again after winning his second GBSSA Senior Boys Individual Championship with an incredible round of 7-under 65, tying his own GBSSA record low score from two weeks earlier. And speaking of defending champions, congratulations once again to St. Theresa’s, whose Senior Boys Golf Team will be once again representing the GBSSA at OFSAA in Kingsville next week. We wish these athletes the best of luck as they compete against the finest high school golfers in the province October 11th and 12th.
Special thanks to Tim Zado and his Golf Management Program team from Georgian College for providing commemorative gifts to all of today’s participants, as well as Richard Edmonds and Mackenzie Cuthbert of Tangle Creek for all of their support throughout the golf season.
