Dave Casey has done it again. On Saturday, May 28, the secondary school teacher and occasional player did what he has done before, he won the Camden Braes Early Bird Men’s Invitational. This time, he held off a collegiate-aged player for the title.

Casey managed to play the Odessa, Ontario area Camden Braes Golf & Country Club in 73 strokes in regulation (+1), to only be matched by Peter Beneteau, a Hillsdale College (Michigan) student and former club champion. It was a tough task as the golf course was set up in a very difficult way in order to test the field.

In the playoff Casey would win on the first extra hole to become the Early Bird Invitational Champion once again.
