McCann wins second Fall Classic in Three Years

COLLINGWOOD, ON - The Golf Supply House Fall Classic and Women's Fall Classic are the PGA of Ontario's last majors of the year before the season culminates on September 1 at the Player of the Year Championship.  The Fall Classic is a 36-hole stroke play event and is co-hosted by the Golf Club at Lora Bay and the Georgian Bay Club in stunning Collingwood, Ontario.

The weather and the well-designed Lora Bay combined for a stout defense on day one, there were eight players at 72 or better going into the second day.  Colin Murray (Peninsula Lakes Golf Club) and Thomas Keddy (Oslerbrook Golf Club) lead the way at T1 with a 3-under 69 performance.  While over on the Women's side of competition Jennifer Jaszek (South Muskoka Golf & CC) finished with a 74 and held a one shot lead over Carrie Vaughan (ClubLink Academy at Glenn Abby) and Mary-Pat Quilty (Settlers' Ghost Golf Club) for top spot.

After a short drive up the road, the second day of competition was primed for some fireworks as players took to the gorgeous Georgian Bay Club to try and move up the leaderboard and take top spot.  Brian McCann, who started the day three back from the leaders, needed to play flawlessly in order to win his second Fall Classic in three years.  He went out and delivered just that, his blemish free round had three birdies and an eagle on his way to a 4-under 67.  "It's my putting," McCann said after the round, "I've been striking the ball well all year, but when rounds like this happen, when all aspects of the game come together you can really score.  It was fun out there today."

Keddy and Murray did their best to hold on but after McCann flew past them, they settled for a top 5 finish.  Keddy (69, 73) held on to second spot, while Murray (69, 75) shared third spot with Ron Kenesky (Twenty Valley Golf Club).

On the ladies side of competition, Georgian Bay Club's own Megan Chapman made a serious day-two push trying to catch Jaszek.  Chapman finished the day at even-par 71 but it was not enough to close the gap with the always steady Jennifer Jaszek.  Jaszek pulled away from the field and didn't look back.  Her one-over 72 was enough to fend off the pushing Chapman to win the Women's Fall Classic by three shots.
