Gusty winds and hot weather were no match for the team of Lee Curry and Bob Flaro.
Both PGA of Ottawa pros have a strong record as players and it showed during the 2016 Flagstick.com Player’s Tour Pro-Pro on Monday. The pair scorched the Whitetail Golf Club in Eganville for a seven-under par score of 65 to claim the title. The only thing hotter might have been the weather with a temperature of 34 degrees, only made slightly more bearable (except when players had to hit shots) of winds gusting to more than 40km/h.
“It was just a good, simple day,” said Flaro, the Head Professional at the Rivermead Golf in Gatineau. “We didn’t make a bogey and we made a few putts.”
Curry, a former Web.com Tour player now employed at the Ottawa Athletic Club and teaching at Hylands Golf Club for their program during the summer, agreed. “It was a pretty stress free round.”
‘There was just one par five we did not birdie, the long par five, 16, that we thought might hurt us but other than that we were solid,” said Flaro.
The two were playing the golf course for the first time and said they enjoyed the layout, one they managed to traverse without a lot of trouble.
The pair split $2400 for the victory.
