Banks birdies last two holes to win Senior Fall Classic


September 7, 2016
The PGA of Ontario was at Peninsula Lakes Golf Club on Tuesday, where they held both the Senior Fall Classic and the CHASE54 Futures Fall Classic.  Peninsula Lakes Golf Club frequently hosts PGA of Ontario events and continually maintains their first-class reputation.  The Seniors were on the tee first and they wasted no time setting the tone for the rest of the day.
David Banks put together a great round after admittedly not playing his best at the PGA Senior Championship of Canada last week.  "I needed a pick me up," Banks said.  "I played really well today.  Of course I left some out there but it feels nice getting a win after last week didn't go my way."  Banks finished the day with six birdies and a one-stroke lead over Ian Doig who was looming in second spot.  "I had a couple shots that I thought might cost me in the end," Banks continued. "I had seen the orchard nine before when I caddied for one of my students, but they were playing the junior tees.  So, I really didn't know what I would be looking at off the tee."  Banks made two of his six birdies on his last two holes to move into the lead and ultimately win the day.
