Komoka, ON - Jason Wellings of Dundas, ON broke through and won for the first time as a professional golfer. Jason posted a 5 under par 67 on the par 72 Firerock Golf Club, located in Komoka, ON just west of London. It was a day of different colours as the morning was calm and sunny, but as the afternoon went on, clouds rolled in and dropped more rain on the already wet golf course. Players had to build on a solid start and hold on as the conditions became increasingly difficult....
Michael Gligic of Burlington, ON continues his hot play as of late by winning The Great Lakes Tour Regular Series Event #2 at Heron Point Golf Links in Ancaster, ON. Gligic carded 3 birdies and two late bogey's for a 1 under par 70. His score was good by one shot over a handful of players tied at even par 71's, including home course favourite and former PGA Tour player Ben Ferguson. As the day progressed the conditions became more difficult with gusty east winds, inconsistent green speeds, and even a little rain. Michael teed off in the first group of the day on number one and posted his score early. He sat in the clubhouse and waited as the scores kept creeping upwards, and eventually was crowned the winner.....
Brian McCann of Mississauga, ON birdied his final 5 holes to post a 4 under par 67 to win the Great Lakes Tour Pre Season Shootout held at the par 71 Hidden Lake New Course in Burlington, ON. The Shootout was originally scheduled for April 19th, but was postponed due to inclement weather and rescheduled for today.
After a not so great first nine of 37, Brian parred the first 4 holes of his second nine than finished with a flurry of birdies on holes 5,6,7,8, and a near hole in one on the par 3 ninth. McCann's 67 was one shot better than Burlington's Michael Gligic and London's Gareth Raflewski....
