2012 GTA Am Logo 
CREEMORE, ON (September 21st, 2015) - The last regular event of the 2015 Tour season was played today at one of Ontario's most remarkable, private golf clubs. The Mad River Golf Club was today's host of The Wisdom Tree Project Memorial , the 24th GTA Am Tour event of the 2015 season. A world-class golf course, designed by Bob Cupp, a course architect who deserves far more recognition for his work than he receives,  Mad River is golfers paradise, and was design with that in mind. The course possesses a great mix holes, dramatic elevation changes and quick, true greens. Mad River will test the best, while offering more opportunity to enjoy the course for those with more modest golf skills.
This week's event was hosted by Jeffrey Halliday, of Wisdom Tree Project. Jeff met with each grouping on the first tee to share his passion for the Wisdom Tree Project. Jeff would also share, that the Wisdom Tree Project would be donating the sum of $250+ in the name of each of the Champ, A Flight, B Flight and C Flight winners to some amazing charitable organizations that are focused on the complex, often misunderstood world of addiction and mental health. The organizations chosen were CAMH Foundation , Family Navigation Project @ Sunnybrook Hospital , Rise Asset Development , RVH Mental Health and Addiction Services , for those who missed the event, the Tour Team, invites you to explore their websites for more information.
With Tour players set to take on this unique layout, they would head to their first tee shots hoping for a late season win. If all went right on the day, the winner would go home with a $250 gift card from Tour sponsor, TaylorMade and the possibility of earning 10,000 BMO Reward points as part of the BMO World Elite Fall Swing . , They also knew that regardless of what happened score-wise, they and Wisdom Tree Project would make a wonderful donation.  
In the Championship Flight, Ryan Taylor (Uxbridge, ON) for the fourth time this season, would be celebrating success, having finished his day with a
round of 77. Ryan would have an extremely steady day on a course, as he turned in a round that included fourteen pars, three bogies and one double, which would best the field by two. Alone in second, Doug McNeil (Aurora, ON) would score his third top three finish of the season with a round of 79.  To determine third place, card matching was required, as two players would enter the clubhouse with matching rounds of 80: Michael Alderman (Georgetown, ON) and John Harrington (Ajax, ON).

In the B-Flight, Andrew Itwaru (Toronto, ON) would capture his second win of the Tour season, having last won back in May at the Adams Golf Collingwood Major. Andrew had another fantastic day, carding an 82, but it was not without its troubles. Andrew would muddle through the first five holes, scoring two doubles and three bogies. He would then settle in and par ten of the final thirteen holes, which would best the field by one.  With this victory, as per the Tour's Battlefield Promotion policy, Andrew will now be joining the ranks of the A Flight for the Tour Championship.  Congratulations Andrew and everyone wishes you continued success in the A-Flight.
