Douro-Dummer, ON (June 21, 2017) - This week, the Tour made its annual trek east, to the heart of Ontario's Kawartha cottage country, to play the Capture Scratch Classic at the spectacular Wildfire Golf Club. A Tom McBroom design, Wildfire is a challenging, and fair masterpiece, nestled along the forested shores of Stony Lake. A par 72, championship golf course that wanders majestically through 210 acres, the layout blends the best elements of cottage country courses with lovely views, affording an escape into pristine, Eastern Ontario forests. The day would be filled with sunny skies, great camaraderie and the Pink and Purple of the players’ clothing. Players were set for a super day.
The Champ Flight would turn into quite a horse race that would lead to a photo finish at the scoring table. Craig Conroy shot 75 to lead the way. One stroke back, and nipping at his heels, was John Harrington with a 76. Former A Flight player Michael Corvese placed third, carding a 77.
The A Flight would require a playoff to decide the grand champ for the day. Matt Berger and Chris Corvese both handed in matching 77's forcing the playoff. After a one hole playoff, Matt Berger edged out Chris with a par and for the win. Blake Walters was enjoying the action from his comfy chair after posting 78 to secure a calm and cool third place finish.
Tour nice guy Bob Chapman would score 79 to win the B Flight this week, Jake Naccarato was a couple back shooting 81 for second place and Michael Cann stole third place posting 83. Mark Van Alstyne also shot an 83 but, after card matching, was just edged out of third place.
