In King of Clubs Senior Men’s Golf Tour

MILL RIVER – Mel Bernard led the field in the sixth and final event of the King of Clubs Senior Men’s Golf Tour’s spring session on Monday. 

The Andersons Creek member continued his strong play this spring by shooting a 2-over-par 74 as 56 golfers enjoyed the fine weather and the well-manicured Mill River Golf Course.  

Mill River’s Randy Bernard and Belvedere member Gary Moore were right behind Bernard with identical scores of 75. Perennial winner Ron Garrett of Brudenell followed with a 77, and a stroke behind him was Kenny Fraser of Mill River.  

Last week’s winner Dave Connolly of Countryview was not as hot this week, but was able to win the second net prize.

Super Senior Division

In the Super Senior Division, Mike Sullivan of Eagles Glenn had the top low net of the field – 68.

Peter Clark of Andersons Creek had the best low-gross score in the Super Senor Division of 79.

Cliff Goodwin of Andersons Creek and Fox Meadow’s Chick Lenahan, who both had scores of 84, captured the other two low-gross prizes. Bill Arsenault of Countryview and Frank MacCormack of Andersons Creek both shot 85s.

The next event on the senior golf schedule is the PEIGA Amateur in Summerside on July 5 and 6. This is an important event as it provides the senior golfers with the opportunity to earn double points in the year’s rankings.  

The rankings are used to qualify for the end-of-season match play, the senior and super senior champions of the year and the 2015 Maritime Senior Challenge team.

The PEIGA Amateur is the sole qualifying event for golfers to earn a spot on the four-man provincial team to compete at Bell Bay, N.S., in the Atlantic Canada championship in August.
