Trestle Creek Excitement!
Aug 13, 2015
For the second day in a row, we had a sudden victory playoff on the Tour, and for the second day in a row, a player made birdie to win the tournament. Brock Chelle, 16, part of the tremendous junior program at Edmonton's Derrick Golf and Winter Club, made a tap-in birdie on the par-4 9th hole of the Jackpine 9 at Trestle Creek Golf Resort, about 45 minutes west of the Edmonton city limits. Chelle drove the green on the 284-yard par-4 hole, carrying water and sand and flying his ball into the middle of the green in a very gutsy move that paid off for him. He lagged his 30-foot eagle putt up close and brushed it in for the win over Austin Guttinger of High Prairie. Both players had fired excellent rounds of 76 over the tight, hazard-lined fairways and challenging greens. It was 2-for-2 for Derrick youngsters today as Chelle's clubmate Kaitlyn Wingnean shot an excellent 83 to capture her fourth Tour win of the summer. Full results will be on the Tour website by 8 p.m. this evening. Or as soon as I have a cold one, whichever comes first.
