The men’s amateur golf tournament was held on the weekend at the Summerland Golf and Country Club.

Bronsen Teigan and Glen Cross, both of Penticton Golf and Country Club were tied at a two day total of 147, requiring a sudden death playoff for the Overall Low Gross Title.  Bronsen won it on the second play-off hole (#9), when he sunk about an eight-foot birdie putt for the win.

Summerland members performed well, capturing 26 of an available 50 placement prizes.

The overall gross winner was Bronsen Teigan, with 72 and 75 for a total of 147. He won in a playoff over Glen Cross.

In the first flight, Cross won the low gross while Cory Dent was the low net winner.

In the second flight, Brian Livingstone won the low gross while Steve Clement won the low net.

Richard Engel had the low gross in the third flight and Jack Diamond had the low net.

In the fourth flight, the low gross went to Clinton Clay while Doug Renner had the low net score.

The low net winner was Blair Dufty, with 66 and 69 for a total of 135.

Some highlights of the event were the Closest to the Pin from the deck on Friday night, followed by the Summerland version of the Big Break Flop Wall on Saturday night.

Both events helped raise money for junior golf.

Olaf Becker of Maple Ridge also scored a Hole In One on the 16th Hole earning $5,000.

He donated a $200 putter to the club’s junior program at the prize ceremony on Sunday night, and it helped raise $200 for junior golf when it was used as a prize for the pro shop open putting contest.

Sponsors included Coca Cola and Molson Breweries.

With their help, the tournament was able to raise $1,000 which is awarded each June as a bursary to a worthy Summerland Secondary School student.

The 2010 bursary was awarded to Melissa Stathers, a junior member of the club.
