Golf and Food Share Top Billing in Wetaskiwin!

Jul 20, 2011

Wednesday, 7:02 p.m. ----It's not often that the post-tournament banquet could possibly outshine the golf ON the course, but that was the case today at Montgomery Glen GC in Wetaskiwin. Another soggy course greeted 76 juniors from across the province, as the grounds crew worked furiously throughout the day to get the Montgomery Glen course back in shape after heavy rains and high winds during the week left many fairways soggy, and snapped off over two dozen mature trees overnight. Defending Tour Champion Tyler Saunders of the Glendale assured himself a spot in the field at Wolf Creek next month to defend his title by firing a 2-over par 74 today to capture his first 2011 Tour Title. Srixon Order of Merit leader Katie Griffiths of Red Deer got back to her winning ways by capturing the Junior Girls division. Full results of the day's proceedings and a review of the tournament banquet menu will be on the website by 7:45 pm this evening. 7:40 p.m. ---Results now online! I made it with 5 minutes to spare!

Tuesday, 7:35 p.m. - Just got home via a detour at the Sun Life Financial Alberta Mens' Amateur in Stony Plain, where the first round leader board is littered with names of current and former Tour members. Scott Stiles leads at -7. In Leduc today, the home club's Mike Holland made 7 birdies offset by four bogies for a 3-under par 68, good for a 2-shot win over three players tied at 1-under 70. Kristen Lee of the Glendale won her first Tour event of the year with an 80. Full results will be on the website in a half hour.....Dunc....8:10 p.m. Full results now online.

One Down, Three to Go!

Jul 18, 2011

The first tournament of a four-event-in-four day swing through Central Alberta is in the books. Early morning thunderstorms and lightning gave way to warm sunny skies at the Ponoka Community Golf Club today as 75 junior golfers descended on the Ponoka course. Andrew Harrison of Camrose and Austin Jacobson of Wolf Creek shared honors today in the junior boys' division while Katie Griffiths of Red Deer continued her good recent play in the junior girls flight. Full results of today's tournament are now online.

Parents and Spectators - KEEP YOUR DISTANCE!

Jul 15, 2011

We welcome the support of parents and family members who bring the kids out to events. Without their support, obviously it would be difficult for players to get to the tournaments. However, there are good reasons we have a policy that parents and spectators stay 30 yards away from the competitors AT ALL TIMES. Assistance in searching for lost golf balls is acceptable, but we ask that there be no conversations with any of the competitors during the rounds. In Carstairs this week, parental interference led to the disqualification of a player, when a perhaps well meaning, but obviously ill-formed parent told a player ( not his son but one of the other players in the group) that it was acceptable for him to drop a ball in play rather than return to the tee and put another ball in play after the players were unable to find the competitor's golf ball. I know that many of these youngsters are not yet fully knowledgeable about the Rules of Golf, but this is supposed to be a learning experience for them. It is the responsibility of all players in any tournament at any level to know the Rules. If they make a mistake on their own during a round, and end up suffering the consequences, so be it. They will learn from that and grow. But having parents and spectators interfering, no matter how good their intentions, is unacceptable. So, when we come up to you at events and ask you to stay back and let the kids play without distractions or interference, this is why.

Handicap Verifications!!! Please READ this!

With the meat of the Tour schedule coming up over the next month, this is a good time to remind players that it is their responsibility to provide up to date evidence of their handicaps at tournaments. Many Tour sites will be insisting on up to date handicap verifications for players to be eligible for net score prizes. Print off an up to date handicap verification and bring it with you to events!!!
