THE GOLF LAB OPEN KEEPS PLAYERS ON THE STRAIGHT AND NARROW
SUTTON, ON (September 12, 2016) – 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. This would be the site of this week's Golf Lab Open, the second event of the September GTA AM Tour schedule and the BMO Fall Swing..!
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 will be appreciated for its subtle charms. The Briars is the epitome of an old-style course.
Champ Flight's Matthew Perricciolo was the only competitor to record a sizzling 73 and with three others deadlocked at 74, Shavi Kahlon was awarded a second place finish and Tom Fraser was once again in the mix, placing third. A Flight had Matt Ward take his second trip to the podium this year, with a Flight best 79 for the win, Mike Reynolds was hot on his heels with 80 and Jim Tadeson secured third by shooting an 81. Andrew Mitchell from B Flight would convert his score of 80 for a win, while John Waddington and Duane Gomes locked horns, both shooting 84, John would place second and Duane would finish in third. C Flight's Rob Martel would record his second victory of the season, shooting a very tidy 81. Next best was Brian Nash who carded an 87 and Sharad Kerur was one stoke back, and in third, with an 88. Senior B was won by Tour veteran David MacLachlan recording a score of 90 and the Women's Flight was captured by Alyse Feldman with Net 87.
