Jeff Mills wins Birdie Shootout


(September 26th - Brampton ON) On a perfect day on Turnberry's unique Par 29 Golf Course in Brampton Jeff Mills defended his title and won the 2011 adidas Eyewear Birdie Shoot-out. Jeff won last year's inaugural event and did so again this year with a total of 5 birdies.

However 5 birdies doesn't really tell the story, Jeff actually only had 3 birdies but on the 172 yard Par 3 15th hole he added the second hole in one of his career with an 8 iron that found the bottom of the cup. Jeff said, "he didn't even see it go in because of the light, and it wasn't until someone else in the group yelled it's in, that I knew I made it."

In this unique and exciting format, the hole in one counted as 2 birdies thus bringing his total to 5 for this year's event.

6 was Jeff's winning total last year, and he was gunning for 6 again; but 5 did the trick!

Well done Jeff, you are the "Bird Man of Turnberry"!
