The main feature of the annual Labour Day Men’s Open tournament at the Cedar Glen course here Monday was soggy conditions.
But despite the heavy all night rain, the show must go on, and when it was all over it was Ottawa Hylands golfer, Paul Nooyen leading the field.
Nooyen posted a four-over-par 74 to lead the field of 86 golfers and narrowly edge out Morrisburg Golf Club’s Randy Casselman at 75. Finishing third was Cedar Glen’s Kurtis Barkley (76).
Only six golfers broke the 80 barrier on the day, the remaining three including Iroquois’ Shawn Lapier with a 79, Nationview’s Rodney Pitnam with a 79 and Morrisburg’s Kirk Barkley with a 79.
Lapier’s 79 gave him a 71 net for the low net in A flight, while Barkley’s 79 led the B field for the low gross.
The low net in B flight was won by Phil Douglas of Cedar Glen who shot an 83 for a net 70. Although tied with Bill Collins (Cedar Glen) who shot an 85 for a 70 net, he took the win when officials broke the tie.
In C flight, Steven Tupper, walked away the clear-cut winner with a 91. His next closest competition came from Jim Casselman with a 101. The low net in the flight went to Dennis Casselman who shot a 102 for a 76 net. Again the win required the breaking of a tie with Mike Berube also posting a 76 net score on his 102 round.
Other top scores in A flight were shot by Morrisburg’s Kevin Duvall with an 81, and Nationview’s Marc Ethier and Cedar Glen’s Lindsay Weegar who tied with 82s. Williamsburg’s Kyle Jarvis and Nationview’s Fabian Adams and Upper Canada’s Mike Lauring tied with 83s.
Following Kirk Barkley’s win in B flight were Cedar Glen golfers Phil Douglas 83 and Bill Collins 85, Rob Casselman 87 and Greg VanDellan 87.
