DuNdas Valley Golf and Curling club 
hosts the Sundog Summit

Dundas ON (August 18, 2015) - Another great week of golf is in the books, with four Tour competitors celebrating wins, in their respective flights, of the 2015 season. The weather was amazing, the course conditions were impeccable and the competition was intense at this week's Sundog  Summit. The event took place at the historic Dundas Valley Golf & Curling Club - Long Course; a Canadian classic, designed in 1929 by the prolific and very talented Stanley Thompson. This fabulous course, set on the western tip of the Niagara Escarpment, is a composition of lush fairways that are majestically lined with mature oak, willow and maple trees which guard the challenging greens that make you think twice and, hopefully, only putt once. This classic, strategic layout appeals to golfers of all abilities while challenging the low handicap players. Success would come to Tour players who were able to execute with equal parts patience and accuracy.
In the Championship Flight, one of the best rounds of the 2015 season would be recorded. Tour Rookie Matthew Meharg (Uxbridge, ON), shot the lights out today, firing an amazing even-par round of 71!!! Matthew would play the course to perfection, carding four birdies, eleven pars, two bogies and a double. Alone, in second today, was John Harrington (Ajax, ON), who had yet another great and steady day, with a round of 73. To determine third place, card matching was required, as two players would be deadlocked with matching rounds of 74: Michael Alderman (Georgetown, ON), and Nick Schepens (London, ON). When matching the inward nine, the two would remain tied. When matching the final six holes, still no determination; last three holes, stalemate; the score on the eighteenth, deadlocked; front nine scores, matching 37's; when matching the scores on holes 4-9, no result. Finally, matching holes 6-9, Michael would take home third place prizing. In the Championship Flight's season-long  Myrtle Beach Order of Merit , Michael Alderman continues to sit in top spot, with 660.0 points. John Harrington moves into second spot and now has 607.5 and Ryan Taylor slips to third, with 555.8.
In the A-Flight, another Tour Rookie, Trent Shapcott (Mississauga, ON), would make his first Tour event an outstanding day, playing Dundas, with ease to win The Sundog Summit, with a round of 73. Trent played both nines with a steady hand, not finding any of the trouble that can be found at Dundas, and would finish his day with two birdies, twelve pars and four bogies, to capture his first win on Tour. Taking home second place prizing was Shavi Kahlon (Brooklin, ON), scoring his second top-three finish of the season, with a round of 77. Alone, in third, Seth Hellinga (Sarnia, ON), playing in just his first event, scored a round of 78. The A Flight's Myrtle Beach Order of Merit  sees Mike Hubbs remain in top spot, with a commanding lead of 734.2 points. Jumping into second, Matt Ward has 445.7 points and, climbing into third spot, after his Battlefield Promotion from B Flight, Derek Peters has 445.3 points.
In the B-Flight, Derek Peters (Toronto, ON), would capture his third win of the Tour season, having last won back in May and April. Derek had another fantastic day, scoring a 78, to win by four. With this victory, as per the Tour's Battlefield Promotion policy, Derek will now be joining the ranks of the A Flight for the remainder of the season. We wish Derek continued success in the A-Flight and congratulations on his improved play! To determine second and third places, card matching was required, as three players would enter the clubhouse with matching rounds of 83: Don Laking (Toronto, ON), Bob Fisher (Burlington, ON) and Jeremey Choi (Toronto, ON). The result of matching the back nine scores would see Don capture second place, while Bob would take third. In the B-Flight's  Myrtle Beach Order of Merit , Bob Chapman remains in top spot, with 572.3 points. Climbing into second place, Frank O'Brien has 402.9 points and, moving into the top three, Jeremey Choi has 376.7 points.
In the C-Flight, a smiling Franco Aceto (Woodbridge, ON), would be celebrating his first Tour victory. Having come so close, twice this season, he FINALLY found success this week with an amazing round of 86. To determine second and third places, card matching was required, as four players would enter the clubhouse with matching rounds of 87: Jim Campbell (Toronto, ON), Al Norman (Aurora, ON), Robert Perri (Toronto, ON) and Mark Matusiak (Toronto, ON). The result of matching the back nine scores would see Jim capture second place, while Al would take third. The C-Flight's  Myrtle Beach Order of Merit continues to see Robert Perri holding down top spot, with 716.3 points. Sitting in second, Jay White has 635.0 points and, holding on to third, Mark Matusiak has 557.5 points.
Another one of the many ways to win on Tour is by Net score. Net score prizing is calculated across all players who did not place in the top three gross-scoring positions in their respective Flights. The top two net winners, at each event, will receive one dozen TaylorMade golf balls and one case (24) of Mill Street beer. This week's winners were Brad Golden, with a net 64 and Kevin Fraser, with a net 67. In addition to the season-long Gross Score, Myrtle Beach Order of Merit, players will compete for a parallel, season-long Net Score Order of Merit . After the seventeenth event, Robert Perri of the C-Flight holds onto first place with 825.5 points and in second Mike Hubbs of the A-Flight has 819.5. For complete standings, click on the link.

The winner of the closest-to-the-pin competition was Paul MacDonell, winning a dozen TaylorMade golf balls. The winner of the Mazda Hole in One, closest to the pin contest, where all players have a chance to win a $2,500 sponsor product shopping spree, was Paul Inglis. Along with these prizes, TaylorMade, Adams Golf and Mill Street Brewery products are awarded to the top 3 finishers in each of the four Flights. The Tour also awards a draw prize at each event for a $50 certificate redeemable at the Mill Street Brew Pub. This event's winner of the Mill Street Brewery Certificate was Chris Simpson.
