Ian Doig wins the Senior Championship for the First Time


Ian Doig wins the Senior Championship for the First Time

Ian Doig can add another notch to the belt.  Doig has many accomplishments in his career but the PGA of Ontario Senior Championship has eluded him until this week.  The PGA of Ontario brought the 36-hole TaylorMade adidas Senior Championship to Flamborough Hills Golf & Country Club last week and some of the best senior golf Professionals in the province battled for the title.

The Seaforth, Ontario native wasted no time on Day 1 of competition carding two birdies in his first three holes and never really looked back from there.  At the end of play on Monday Ian Doig shared the lead with Brian Hutton finishing the day with six birdies and two bogeys on his way to a 4-under 68. 

“There are lots of birdies out there, but if you’re not careful you can make a bogey really easily.  I only had one three-putt over the two days so I’m happy about that.” Doig said after the round, “I did my work beforehand.  I made a great yardage book and knew where I could miss and where I needed to attack.  I’m really happy to finally have my name on that trophy alongside some legends.”

By winning the Senior Championship, Doig halted Gary Jeffery’s quest for the Senior Tour sweep by only three strokes.  Jeffery has a chance, though, to go three out of four next week when the PGA of Ontario hosts their Senior Fall Classic at Peterborough Golf & CC.
