Brad Boyle of Kingston, Ontario got a nice surprise on Monday.  Boyle, a non-exempt member of the PGA TOUR Canada, was playing in the Monday Qualifier for the Times Colonist Island Savings Open at Gorge Vale GC in Victoria when he was pulled off the golf course.  Originally the 7th alternate for the tournament Boyle had went to 1st alternate earlier in the day and when another player withdrew he made his way into the field.  Tour officials sought him out on the course with the good news and brought him back to the clubhouse.

Boyle relayed to Flagstick that it was a welcome interruption to the round. “Great feeling after a bogey,” he noted in a text.

Another Kingstonian, Simon Reyers, made his pro debut on Monday.  The University of Detroit Mercy graduate shot 75 on a gusty day at the National Pines Golf Club in Barrie to tie for 6th place at a Great Lakes Tour event.  Andrew Jensen of Ottawa was one back for a share of 9th place. Mike Froom of Prescott turned in an 80.  Greg Doherty of Mississauga won in a playoff with Will Mitchell of Pickering after each shot 69 in regulation.

Former Nationwide Tour player Lee Curry was the repeat winner at the Smiths Falls Pro-Am on Monday.  The Rideau View Golf Club apprentice professional shot 69 to capture the pro portion of the tournament for the second straight year.
