Holding trophies is nothing new to Dwight Reinhart.  The reigning Quebec Mid-Amateur champion is in the second phase of his amateur golf career after a lengthy run as a touring and club professional.  Through it all he has earned the right to give more than a few victory speeches.

He did so again on Sunday, July 19th at the Flagstick Open at eQuinelle in Kemptville, Ontario. He earned top prize and completed the career “slam” of winning all three BMG Cup Series events at least one once with two round scores of 68-71 (139).

The 45 year-old member of Eagle Creek Golf Club established a one stroke lead with the opening 68.  While an impressive score over the well-conditioned Huxham design at eQuinelle , he had plenty of company near the top.  A total of seven players competing in the top division turned in scores under par in the first round.  Nipping closely at Dwight’s heels were Shawn Patterson (69), Noah Steele (70), Ryan Sevigny (70), and Peter Beneteau (70)

With nine holes to play on Sunday Reinhart stretched his lead to three strokes, reaching -6 after a front nine 34.  Playing alongside Patterson and Steele, it was the latter, a seventeen year-old, who was pressuring the veteran.

Reinhart remained calm.

“I hit it well on the front and I thought, just continue the same way – make him come after me and just try and hit greens and make the putts. And he did.  He made an amazing two on sixteen to tie me and I was like ‘Oh, man – game on’.”

Reinhart had a chance to regain the lead with a birdie putt of less than five feet on the 17th but after he missed and Steele converted a tricky up and down, the duel was still square and came down to the par five 18th at eQuinelle.

With extra holes looming this time it was Steele who faltered.  After Reinhart made par his teen challenger barely missed a five foot par putt of his own, handing the victory to the man who also beat him by the same one stroke margin at the 2014 Flagstick BCC Open.

“This feels good,” a relieved Reinhart shared afterward.

“It was extremely tight coming down the stretch. Noah put up a good battle there. It was great for me.  I haven’t felt that challenged for awhile. It was fun.”

Steele, who was left with the A Flight title for his efforts was disappointed at another slim loss to Reinhart but was gracious in defeat. “Dwight is a great player with tons of experience.  I just tried to give myself opportunities and make as many birdies as possible. It just wasn’t enough.”

The B Flight winner was Alexandre Mizon (74-76) while Binh Vi (79-79)took top honours in C Flight.

For the first time a Senior Division was contested at the tournament.  Perry Freda took top spot in a playoff with home club player Mike Chevrier.  Freda executed a near perfect approach on the first extra hole that stopped about a foot from the target for a tap in birdie and the victory.
