Gary Jeffrey defends at 2016 Senior Summer Challenge
 
August 22, 2016
 
The PGA of Ontario continued their Senior Player of the Year series today at Trafalgar Golf and Country Club with the Senior Summer Challenge.  The Senior Summer Challenge is a stableford scoring event and Trafalgar Golf & CC was up to the task, as it defended itself nicely and was a good test for the players. 
 
Gary Jeffrey (The Georgian Bay Club), who admittedly likes to play "a little" more aggressively in stableford, started the day working in his brand new putter.  With a few customizations, he and his fresh-out-of-the-box putter had six practice putts before the round and were able to pile up seven birdies on his way to a 5-under 66, and 41 stableford points to defend the Senior Summer Challenge title.  "I putted great, believe it or not," Jeffrey said after the round.  "I wasn't playing my best earlier in the year.  I've been working hard and I'm feeling better about my game.  I played well and won the Pro/Member at The Georgian Bay Club last week so I came into today on a high.  Today's win was a big confidence boost."  Jeffrey played well today but it was his putting that made a real difference.  Jeffrey laughed, "I guess I'm keeping it." 
 
Jeffrey's putter wasn't the only one of his clubs trying to steal the spotlight on Monday.  When he arrived at Trafalgar G&CC in the morning and had a looked in his bag there were only twelve clubs looking back at him.  He had been teaching lessons on the weekend, and his 8-iron and 56-degree wedge were still on the range at The Georgian Bay Club.  Even with twelve clubs and a new putter, Jeffrey navigated his way around the course and bested Jim Farrelly (Guelph Lakes Golf and Country Club) by two stableford points.  Ian Doig, Dan Clark, and Rick Willan rounded out the rest of the top five.
