2012 GTA Am Logo 
perfect SETTING FOR solid competition and
amazing course conditioning
Douro-Dummer, ON (September 9, 2015) This week, Wildfire Golf Club welcomed the GTA AM Tour players for the Capture Scratch Classic , the second event of the exciting BMO World Elite Fall Swing . The Tour made its annual trek east, to the heart of Ontario's Kawartha cottage country, to play a Tour favorite. This event had players focus a little more on their dress as Tour Sponsor, Capture Scratch, challenged players to dress up in their best PinksandPurples. The host, Wildfire Golf Club , is a spectacular and picturesque course, designed by noted architect Tom McBroom. Wildfire is a challenging but 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. With an awesome golf course, incredible conditioning, players would be rewarded, and those who played smart would improve their standing on the BMO World Elite Fall Swing.
In the Championship Flight, for a second straight week, another Tour Rookie would shoot the lights out in his very first event, and celebrate his first win on Tour. Blake Ulrich (Peterborough, ON), who works with the golf shop team at Wildfire, had an amazing day on the course, tying the lowest round of the Tour season by scoring a three-under par round of 69. .He would find his rhythm early, with an eagle on the fourth, three birdies, twelve pars , and two bogies. He also had the distinction of being the first player to win a Tour event, go to work in the golf shop and then help the Tour Team tear down by collecting the pins and tees.  Alone, in second, for his third straight event, Craig Conroy (Bowmanville, ON) finished with a round of 73. Taking home third, Ryan Taylor (Uxbridge, ON) ended his day with a 76. The Championship Flight's season-long  Myrtle Beach Order of Merit , sees a small change at the top, with Ryan Taylor jumping into first place with 683.3 points. Michael Alderman slips into second with 660.0 points, and in third, John Harrington has 642.5 points.
In the A-Flight, Robin Hutchins (Toronto, ON) would improve his standings in the BMO World Elite Fall Swing by winning his first event of the Tour season, firing a round of 78 to mark his fifth top three finish on the season. Robin would keep it out of trouble, only finding issues on the sixteenth and eighteenth, turning in a card with one birdie, twelve pars, three bogies and two doubles. To determine second and third places, card matching was required, as three players would enter the clubhouse with matching rounds of 82: Jarrett Hemmes (Mississauga, ON), Scott Lundy (Ajax, ON) and Dean Weber (Toronto, ON). When matching the inward nine, the results would see, Jarrett take home second place honors while Scott went home with third place.   The A-Flight's   Myrtle Beach Order of Merit  sees Mike Hubbs remain in top spot, with a commanding lead and 741.7 points. Jumping into second spot, Robin Hutchins has 515.0 points and, slipping into third spot, Shavi Kahlon has 465.0 points.
In the B-Flight, Bob Chapman (Toronto, ON) would capture his third win of the season, with a fantastic round of 84. Bob would keep it in the middle, carding eight pars, eight bogies and two doubles. Alone, in second, Don Laking (Toronto, ON) would post a score of 87. Rounding out the top three, Mike DiFlorio (Baysville, ON) would finish his day with a score of 88. In the B-Flight's  Myrtle Beach Order of Merit , Bob Chapman remains in top spot, with 676.3 points. Moving into second place,   Andrew Itwaru has 421.3 points and, climbing into the top three, Don Laking has 415.8.
In the C-Flight, Christian Anderson (Barrie, ON) would celebrate his second win of the Tour season with his round of 88. Christian would have a great front nine, scoring a 41 and playing it steady on the back, carding a 47. Alone, in second, and coming off a win and a second place in her last two events, was Sandy Zajac (Etobicoke, ON). Sandy had a third straight successful outing, scoring a round of 89. To determine third place, card matching was required, as two players had matching rounds of 90: Al Norman (Aurora, ON) and Franco Aceto (Woodbridge, ON). The result of matching the back nine scores would see Al finishing third. The C-Flight's  Myrtle Beach Order of Merit   continues to see Robert Perri holding down top spot, with 731.3 points. Sitting in second, Jay White has 635.0 points and, holding steady in third, is Mark Matusiak with 575.0 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 Franco Aceto, with a net 70 and George Olak, with a net 71. 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 eighteenth 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.

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 Laz Nussis.
