2014 PGA of BC Assistants Championship - June 2 - 3rd, 2014
Rivershore Golf Links, Kamloops, BC
Recently I played in and won, the PGA of BC Assistants Championship, hosted by the Rivershore Golf Links in Kamloops, BC. After birdieing my final hole to post a two day total of four under par, top ranked PGA of Canada professional Bryn Parry, calmly rolled in a 15 foot eagle putt to tie. After 36 holes, we were both two shots clear of the field. Bryn and I also happen to work together at Seymour Creek Golf Centre and the Bryn Parry Golf Academy.
We played a sudden death playoff where I was able to birdie the first playoff hole to win. It was great fun and a confidence builder to be around the lead of a meaningful golf tournament through the final day. The last few seasons on PGA TOUR Canada have been a struggle for me, and as such, it had been a little while since I have been in contention. To pull out the win was a big thrill and it is rewarding to see some of my hard work at the range and practice area beginning to pay off.
This was my first win in a PGA of Canada Championship, and was also my first start as a member of the PGA of Canada. I am very much looking forward to the bigger events this summer both here in BC and across the country and am excited for new opportunities and challenges moving forward.
