We had a pretty awesome day for our 2nd Major of the year, and Country Hills certainly didn't disappoint!! Thank you so much to the staff and grounds crew for making sure we had top notch service and conditions out there. The greens were rolling fast and true - the quickest every player said they've had all year. It was a great test.
With just one week between wins in the Championship Flight, Andrew Cook (Calgary) wanted to make sure he didn't need to win another playoff. His strong consistent play prevailed with his 5-stroke win over reigning Country Hills Ladies Club Champion Claire Mitton (Calgary) who was unlucky with just one bad hole.
After an opening triple bogey, Chris Patterson (Calgary) put together a solid round which included TEN 1-putts for a great comeback 77 in the A Flight. Mike Rowe was not far behind once again losing out by only 2 strokes.
It was a tight race in the B Flight with 5 competitors finishing within 5 strokes of each other, but in his 2nd event on the Alberta Golf Tour, Jim Carney (Calgary) won by 1 stroke over last week's winner, Cody Snethun (Buck Lake).
The C Flight saw some drama today as there was a tie for 1st place between Sandra Schell (Big Valley) and Robert Squibb (Calgary), with Stacy Lindberg (Calgary) only one shot off. It took 3 extra holes of solid golf, but the Alberta Golf Tour's reigning C Flight Champion Schell got her first win of the 2015 season!
We saw another great match up in the D Flight today between Carmen Caldwell (Edmonton) and Teresa Greig (Big Valley). Caldwell came up with her first Alberta Golf Tour win with a solid 93!
