PLAYERS ON THE STRAIGHT AND NARROW AT THIS WEEKS HUAWEI MASTERS
SUTTON, ON (September 11, 2017) – Take a short drive north of Toronto to the shores of Lake Simcoe and you will find a gem of a golf course called The Briars. Two Canadian design legends have combined to bring you a delightful dose of golf at its best. Stanley Thompson carved out the original nine holes in 1922. Robbie Robinson integrated a second nine in 1971, creating a seamless routing that may look fairly innocuous on paper, but is to be appreciated for its subtle charms. The Briars, the epitome of an old-style course, would be the site of this week's Huawei Masters, the second event of the September GTA AM Tour schedule.
Champ Flight was led by Jay Skukowski, shooting a round of 73 for the win. Peter Willis would finish one stroke back along with TJ Rule, of Golf Away Tours. After card matching, Peter would take second place and TJ would post 74, for third.
The A Flight would see Tour regular, Scott Lundy, on the podium this week, after shooting 75, low enough to take home his first win on Tour! Andrew Susands, of Taylormade, was close behind and finished second, with a round of 79. Jed Charette was one back, carding a score of 80.
B Flight would see Jeff Anthover and Adam Angilletta go head to head in a playoff for first, both carding 81. With nerves running high, Jeff managed to come out on top after sinking a birdie in a one-hole playoff. Peter Cuthbert was firing on all cylinders, but came up one short, putting him in third place for the day, with a score of 82.
C Flight would see a familiar face at the top of the leader board this week, as Rick Jones would find his way into first place, posting an 87. Sandy Zajac would secure second and Jack Leong took third, after card matching, both shooting 88.
The Seniors’ Flight would see a solid score of 78 on top, with John Stanford taking the trophy. David Johnson took second place after carding 80. The Seniors’ net competition would see Glen Parsneau slide into first with a score of net 68, followed by Jack Radford, posting a net 70.
The Women’s Flight would see a new winner this week, as Karen Spence would card a tidy net score of 67.
