The Cellworks Masters hosted at
Beverly Golf & Country Club

COPETOWN (August 06, 2015) - This past Thursday, after a short summer interlude, the GTA AM Tour resumed, in full force, with two events being played in five days. Thursday, Tour competitors would participate in The Cellworks Masters , hosted at the Beverly Golf & Country Club , where Mother Nature was, once again, shining at her best. The Robbie Robinson designed course has been improved significantly 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, 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 undistracted by the weather and beautiful surroundings.


In the Championship Flight, making it a three-peat, Ryan Taylor (Uxbridge, ON), would win his third straight start on Thursday, playing Beverly to perfection by carding two birdies, fourteen pars, and two bogies to score an even par round of 70. Ryan's score was good enough to win by five strokes, giving him seven top three finishes in the eight events he's played this season. To determine second and third places, card matching was required, as two players would play to matching rounds of 75: Aaron Jenkins (Waterloo, ON), and TJ Rule (Toronto, ON). When matching the last nine holes, the two would remain deadlocked, having both shot 36. When matching the final six holes, Aaron would take home second place prizing, with TJ finishing in third. In the Championship Flight's season-long  Myrtle Beach Order of Merit , Michael Alderman continues to sit in top spot with 635.0 points. With his win, Ryan Taylor moves into second, with 527.5 points and in third, is Sean Kaye, with 487.5 points.
In the A-Flight, making his return to the Tour, Grant Fraser (Burlington, ON), definitely brought his A game to the course this week. Grant would have no troubles with Beverly , firing two birdies, ten pars, five bogies and a double for a round of 75, to win by two. He was excited to be back competing as he is readying himself for the upcoming Myrtle Beach World Am..! To determine second and third places, card matching was required, as two players would play to matching rounds of 77: Robin Hutchins (Toronto, ON) and John Farrugia (Brampton, ON). When matching the inward nine, the two would remain tied. When matching the final six holes: stalemate; last three holes: still no determination; the score on the eighteenth: deadlocked; front nine scores: matching 39's; finally, when matching the scores on holes 4-9, Robin would take home second place prizing, with John finishing third! The A Flight's Myrtle Beach Order of Merit  sees Mike Hubbs remain in top spot, with a commanding lead of 734.2 points. In second, Danny MacDonald has 442.5 points and, in third spot, Matt Ward has 400.7 points.
In the B-Flight, seemingly coming out of nowhere, Peter Rhodes (Toronto, ON). summoned his inner pro to post his round of the year, scoring an amazing 81 to score his first win of 2015. To determine second and third places, card matching was required, as three players would play to matching rounds of 85: Paul Inglis (Mississauga, ON), Kevin Allen (Annan, ON), and Joe Greco (Barrie, ON). When matching the last nine holes, Paul would score second place prizing. Kevin was quite happy to finish in third, taking home some Mill Street Beer and TaylorMade Project a Golf Balls. In the B-Flight's  Myrtle Beach Order of Merit , Bob Chapman remains in top spot, with 537.3 points over Derek Peters, who has 493.8. Moving in the top three, Frank O'Brien has 390.4 points.

In the C-Flight, finding his way back to the winner's circle, John Baty (Toronto, ON), would find his touch once again to play a very steady round and take home the hardware for his efforts. John would, keep it out of any trouble, carding one birdie, five pars and eleven bogies and a double, for a round of 82, and the win. Alone, in second, Nigel Hilliard (Collingwood, ON), playing in his first GTA AM Tour event of the 2015 season, narrowly missed forcing a playoff, having bogied the eighteenth. He finished his day with a great round of 83. Placing third was Christian Anderson (Barrie, ON), who finished second last year at Beverly. Christian shot a 2014 matching round of 85 this year. The C-Flight's  Myrtle Beach Order of Merit continues to see Robert Perri holding down top spot, with 680.0 points. Sitting in second, Jay White has 635.0 points and, holding on to third, Mark Matusiak has 461.3 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 Wilf Phillips, with a net 65 and Brad Golden, 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 . For complete standings click on the link.
The winner of the closest-to-the-pin competition was Jack Franklin, 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 Rob Colaricci. 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 Sandy Zajac.
