WYNDANCE HAS POLARIZING EFFECT AT THE SUNDOG OPEN
(August 8, 2017) –
After a mid summer break, The Tour was in full force this week at the awesome Wyndance Golf Club. As this fine Tuesday morning got under way, there was just a hint of a breeze looming to challenge players on a golf course that already feels big and powerful. Players were headed for an uphill battle right out of the gate.
Wyndance Golf Club, in Uxbridge, Ontario, holds the distinction of being the first course in Canada designed by the legendary Greg Norman. Norman, a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, crafted a masterful routing, through and around a former sand and gravel pit, to create a breathtaking and powerful masterpiece. As a result, Wyndance Golf Club was named runner-up by Golf Digest as best new course in Canada in 2008.
It was Ryan Taylor who would find himself on familiar ground, shooting a steady round of 74 and winning the Champ Flight. Stewart Law was next best posting 77 for second and Clark Davis finished one back with 78 to secure third place.
A Flight's Chris Corvese would punch his ticket for a trip to the Champ Flight after shooting a 78 for the win and his third victory of the season. Joshua Kingsmill was sniffing out a win but would fall just short posting 79 for second and Blake Waters would also post 79 and take third spot.
Sean Peek of B Flight would handily capture a win, posting a score of 80. Next best was Billy Hutzul, handing in a score of 84 for second and third spot was captured by Adrian Jayne, one back with 85.
C Flight would see a first time winner in Alex Marton, shooting a beauty round of 86. Robert Perri was nipping at his heels recording 87 and Tour veteran Carl Thompson would post 92 for third place.
Seniors' Flight was decided by a playoff between Kevin Chase and Doug McNeil after both players shot rounds of 77. After a one hole playoff, and a bomb par putt of over 40 feet, it would be Kevin Chase who would claim the victory, Doug finished in second. Seniors' Net saw David Johnson and John Stanford both carding a Net 70, with David taking the lead.
Sandra Stuckless would lead the way in Women’s Flight posting her second victory in as many events, posting a Net 73 for the win.
