 The Cellworks Masters hosted at

Beverley Golf & Country Club


COPETOWN (August 28, 2014) - For a second straight week, the GTA AM Tour has been busy hosting two events in the week. Today marked the fourth event in just eleven days; the last event prior to the start of the BMO World Elite Fall Swing. Today, the Tour competitors were participating in The Cellworks Masters, hosted at the Beverley Golf & Country Club where Mother Nature was, once again, shining at her best. The Robbie Robinson designed course has been improved continually over the past six decades. Notably, in 1999, the classic course design was updated by Doug Carrick, one of Canada's most noted golf course architects and a former apprentice of Robbie Robinson. The course provided Tour players with an outstanding and time-honoured golf experience. With its naturally rolling terrain, impeccably groomed fairways, well-placed bunkers and superb greens, everything was in excellent condition. Beverly is truly one place you would never tire of playing. Today's winners would be those who could stay focused on their golf game and off the weather and the beautiful surroundings.


In the Championship Flight, making an encore appearance on Tour, playing in only his second event of the season, Gennaro Lacobucci (Mississauga, ON) made it a great one, playing the course to perfection, carding three birdies, twelve pars, and three bogies to score an even par round of 70. Gennaro's score was good enough to win by three strokes, taking home his first GTA AM Tour trophy and his second top three finish. Earning second place honours, and coming off a third place finish in his very first event last week, at Oshawa, was Jack Franklin (Toronto, ON) who had a birdie-filled card of 73. Jack carded five birdies, six pars, six bogies, and one double. Alone, in third, was Alex Forbes (Toronto, ON) who was playing in only his third event of the season. Alex shot a round of 76, to grab his second top three finish of the season. In the Championship Flight's Myrtle Beach Order of Merit, John Harrington, having not played in today's event, saw his lead diminish by 50 to 182.5 points as he currently sits with 910 points. With his fourth place finish today, Stephen Wright moves to 727.5 points. Remaining in third spot, having not played today, is Peter Willis, who stands pat with 610 points.


In the A-Flight, the Tour would crown another first time winner of the 2014 Tour season. Jordan Lebel (Toronto, ON), who has come so close this season, having placed second and third in two other tournaments, made it happen today and only missed tieing his personal best by one stroke. Jordan finished with a bogie on the eighteenth to card a 79 which would be good enough to win by a stroke. He had three birdies, six pars, eight bogies and one, dreaded other. Coming in second, for a second time this season, was Darryl Scott (London, ON) who turned in a card that showed only a few holes had caused him trouble. Darryl carded one birdie, ten pars and four bogies, two doubles and a triple for a round of 80. Capturing his second top three finish of the Tour season, with a third place finish today, was Mike Hubbs (Hamilton, ON) who scored a round of 81. The A Flight's Myrtle Beach Order of Meritsees a little shake up this week: Shavi Kahlon continues to hold down the number one spot with a 112.5 point lead at 687.5 points, having not played today. Darryl Scott vaulted into second spot, with his second place finish today, and now has 575 points. Slipping into third spot is Matt Ward, with 570 points.


In the B-Flight, yet another first time winner would be crowned, as Mario Araujo (Hamilton, ON), playing in just his first event of the 2014 Tour season, made it a good one! Mario would play a round that would leave him stress free, having carded ten pars, six bogies and two doubles for a round of 80 that was good by three. To determine second and third place, card matching was required, as two players would play to matching rounds of 83: Arthur Vanek (Toronto, ON) and John Farrugia (Brampton, ON). When matching the last nine holes, Arthur, who carded a 41, would score his second TaylorMade club of the season while John would be resigned to take home some Mill Street Beer and TaylorMade Golf Balls for carding 42. The B-Flight's Myrtle Beach Order of Merit, continues to see John Farrugia holding down top spot with 590 points to lead by 167.5 points over second place Mark Armatage, with 422.5 points. In third spot, Brett Parry has 385 points. 


In the C-Flight, for the second time this season, Bob Read (Toronto, ON ) would play a very steady round and take home the hardware for his efforts. Bob would do it right, keeping it out of any trouble, especially for the first fourteen holes by carding one birdie, two pars and eleven bogies. The next three holes would cause him issues, as he would card three double bogies in a row. However, Bob would finish strong on the eighteenth, scoring the all-important birdie, that keeps you coming back to play again, to cap off a round of 85 for a three stroke win. Alone, in second today, was Christian Anderson (Collingwood, ON) who would capture his first top three finish of the 2014 season, having played to a round of 88. To determine third place, card matching was required, as two players would enter the clubhouse with matching rounds of 90: Chun Zhang (Brantford, ON) and Ian Lederer (Toronto, ON). The result of matching the back nine scores would see Chun score his second top three finish of the season carding a 42 on the back, over Ian's score of 45. The C-Flight's Myrtle Beach Order of Meritsees a small change. While Bob Sikorski's continues in first, with 747.5 points, leading by 265 points, and Krish Nair still sits in second place, with 482.5 points, after his win today, Bob Read moves into third with 495 points.


Another one of the many ways to win on Tour is through Net Score competition. The net score competition is based on the net scores of all the players who did not place in the top three, gross winning positions in their respective Flights. The top two net winners at each event receive one dozen TaylorMade golf balls and one case (24) of Mill Street beer. This week's winners were Brad Golden, with a net 68 and James Mitchell, with a net 70. In addition to the season-long Gross Score, Myrtle Beach Order of Merit, players will compete for a parallel season-longNet Score Order of Merit. After 19 events, Michael Cann holds down top spot with 638 and, in second, Mark Matusiak has 626. For complete standings click on the link.


The winner of the closest-to-the-pin from today's event The Cellworks Masters was Jonathan Lee winning a dozen TaylorMade golf balls. Also at every event, there is a Mazda Hole in One hole, where all players shoot at a chance to win a $2,500 sponsor product shopping spree. This week's winner of the Hole in One closest to the pin was Frank O'Brien Along with these prizes, Petro-Canada, TaylorMade 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; the winner of this week's Mill Street Brewery Certificate was Chris Piexoto.


Another new addition to the 2014 Tour prizing is an opportunity to win a $20 Ultra 94 Preferred Pricing gas card. A per-event draw will take place from all players who fire a score of 94. The winner of the Mill Street Brewery Challenge, Ultra 94 $20 gas card was Fred Snel of the B-Flight.
