Comox Valley golfers finished in the prizes at the 2015 PGA of BC Tournament of Champions presented by SYNlawn on May 25.

The tournament was played on the Mountain course at The Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort in Victoria. The one-day event featured 38 teams from clubs across British Columbia, each consisting of the club’s head professional and club champion.

Bill Kelly and Terran Berger of Glacier Greens finished in a five-way tie for seventh place at 69 while Jesse Moussa and Nick Usher of Comox finished in a five-way tie for 15th with a round of 71.

The Victoria Golf Club team of head professional Lindsay Bernakevitch and club champion Erik Swinburnson shot a total of 5-under 65 to win the event.

The winning pair made just one bogey during their round, making birdie on their final hole for the championship win. “The pins were tough and the greens were firm, but we didn’t have a lot of stress during the round. We never even came close to making a team bogey except for one,” said Bernakevitch.

Defending champions Jason Giesbrecht and Kevin Carrigan of Royal Colwood Golf Club in Victoria finished in shared second alongside Greg Pool and Geoff Butt of Marine Drive Golf Club in Vancouver. The teams finished just one stroke back at 4-under 66.
