Senior Ryder Cup - Central Playoff Update
The SRC conducted the Central Region playoff at The Briars Golf Club (est. 1922) on Monday, August 20th. One hundred and twelve golfers, representing fourteen-member clubs, participated in highly competitive better ball matches on the Stanley Thompson/Robbie Robinson designed course. The top four clubs qualified for the SRC Championship being held at the classic, and picturesque, Saugeen G.C. (www.saugeengolf.com) on September 14th.
Three clubs finished in a dead heat for first place, with a total of 18 points each – they are Scarboro Golf and Country Club, Oshawa Golf and Curling Club and Whitevale Golf Club. In the fourth and final qualifying spot, with 17 points, was the Brampton Golf Club. Congratulations to each of these winning clubs and congratulations to the other 10 clubs who gave it their best effort. Pictured blow are, left to right, Ken Dunlop (SRC Director and SRC Championship Convenor), Bruce Nichols (Brampton Captain), Dale Walker (Whitevale Captain), Tom Nederpel (SRC Secretary) Bruce McEwen (Scarborough Captain) and Bill Peddigrew (Oshawa Captain).
In the closest to the pin contest, on the 153 yard 3rd hole hosting a large pond within 10 feet of the pin, Brian Humphrys of Devils Pulpit landed his tee ball to within five feet to win a case of wine donated by our sponsor, Jackson Triggs Wines. The picture, below, shows Brian, front and center, celebrating his success with his teammates.
Next up, the Northeast Region playoff at Tangle Creek Golf Club on Tuesday, August 21st and the Southwest Region playoff at Highland Country Club on August 27th. Playoff match ups, and results, are posted on the Senior Ryder Cup website at www.seniorrydercup.com.
