Under a beautiful sunny sky at the Stonebridge Golf Club today, the team of Bill Keating and Lee Curry from the Camelot Golf & Country Club were the winners of the Pro – Pro Championship on the Flagstick.com Players Tour and sponsored by BPG Buying Group.
Dominik Boucher, special events and members’ service manager at BPG Buying Group, was at the first tee promoting the BPG Buying Group and passing out the new Volvik golf ball. Keith Riley from Levelwear was also on hand passing out towels, which were well used during the round of golf.
Twenty-four teams of two golfers from the PGA of Canada Ottawa Zone participated in the event on Monday, July 31, 2017. The course couldn’t have been in much better shape and with the heat and humidity, Stonebridge General Manager and Head Professional Joe Warner made sure that everyone was hydrated with free water and everyone who played or watched thanks you Joe.
The Pro – Pro event on the Flagstick.com Players tour has a unique format with the first six holes being played as a team scramble; the middle six being a modified Chapman and the final six holes played as a best ball.
The course measures to a par of 71 and the winning team came in early with the score to beat of 62 (-9). Bill Keating joked that he “rode Lee Curry’s back all day” but Lee Curry indicated that there were “contributions by both players”.
Second place with a score of 65 went to the team of Andy Rajhathy and Chris Bernard. Two teams tied for third place with scores of 66. The players on those two teams were Terry Cowan and Teru Hino from Eagle Creek and Colin Orr playing with Dany Lacombe. Much of the success of the Orr/Lacombe team can probably be given to their team caddy Aldo Lacombe.
Congratulations to all participants and thanks to the staff and management at Stonebridge Golf & Country Club for their efforts in making this a memorable day for everyone.
Next up for the PGA of Canada Ottawa Zone golf professionals on the Flagstick.com Players Tour is the rescheduled Senior Championship on August 14th at Mississippi Golf Club. After the Senior Championship, a reception will be held for recently retired PGA of Canada Ottawa Zone Executive Director Harry Hereford.
