Eden takes top spot in golf championship

Ryan Eden of Summerland was the overall low gross winner in the Men’s Championship at the Summerland Golf and Country Club.

Ryan Eden of Summerland was the overall low gross winner in the Men’s Championship at the Summerland Golf and Country Club earlier this month.

The championship was a hard fought battle among Eden, Nathan Ward and Len Filek.

While Eden shot a fine five under par, 67 on Day One of the championship, both Ward and Filek also recorded sub-par rounds.

Eden commenced Day Two with a two-stroke lead, but struggled to maintain it.

At one point Filek took over the lead, but could not hold it and at the conclusion of 36 holes, Eden and Ward were tied at two under par 142.

On the first play off hole, Ward had a three-foot putt for birdie to win the championship but lipped out.

The second play off hole was the long #8, and Eden hit his approach shot to eight feet, and made the birdie putt to win the 2013 edition of the Summerland Men’s Club Championship.

This is the third time in the last four years he has won the championship.
