Team Hamilton Golf & Country Club  Claim North Course Division While Team DiamondBack Wins South Division at NIKE GOLF Ontario PGA Fall Scramble Presented by FlightScope

(Markham, Ont., October 27, 2009)
– On arguably the best day of October, 192 golf professionals converged on Angus Glen Golf Club’s North and South Courses to play in the second annual Fall Scramble. Scott Cowx, David Miller and Dan Poort representing Hamilton Golf & Country Club shot an amazing 17-under-par 55 to win the North Course division. Brad Dove, Steve Fox and Michael Jack representing Diamond Back won the South Course division after firing an impressive 19-under-par 53.

“This was a true highlight of the year for me and my staff,” said David Miller, the Head Professional at Hamilton. “We had a ton of fun today and the course was great especially the greens,” echoed Brad Dove, Head Professional at Diamond Back.

The Fall Scramble which began last year was created to give Head Professionals and golf professionals alike an opportunity to play with their staff and or friends at year end. The 2008 event took place under less than ideal conditions with a wind chill of -2°, however this year the weather was perfect and the players took advantage.

“Our team was motivated after reading the tournament preview and having the reminder that we finished one stroke out of the money last year,” said Miller, who along with Poort and Cowx all seem to do well in team formats. “I think it’s just a comfort factor and knowing each others games pretty well,” said Cowx, who has a number of team wins to his credit including the 2008 Head Pro / Head Pro Championship.

For Dove and his team this win was a great way to end the year and accomplished a goal of becoming a team to watch for 2010.

“We joked about being a team to watch and we’re already looking forward to coming out next year and defending the title,” added Dove.

G.W. King (Georgian Bay Club) put on a display in the season ending Bamboomer Long Drive Championship. King knocked a drive 318 yards on Angus Glen’s driving range and took home $1,200 for the win. Michael Resciniti (Copper Creek) was the crowd favourite however after his statistics on the FlightScope were off the charts with ball speed over 193 miles per hour. Resciniti finished in second with a drive of 311 yards while John McCann finished in third with a drive of 309 yards.  In the senior division Bryan Ure (Nexgen) won with a drive of 293 yards.

Dave Levesque (Rattlesnake Point) took home the Player of the Year award which is voted on by the Ontario PGA Tournament Committee. Levesque’s season included two victories, highlighted by a stellar 10-under-par 61 at the Ontario PGA Assistants’ Championship. Levesque went on to finish in second place at the Canadian PGA Assistants’ Championship in Quebec City last month.
