Sunnydale has team for International Pairs

VanAnrooy and Ward will compete at next round of competition

TYLER VANANROOY AND Robin Ward won a playoff to advance in the International Pairs competition.

 

 

 

The competition at Sunnydale to determine a team for the 2012 International Pairs golf tournament proved interesting.

Tyler VanAnrooy’s sizzling 66 was instrumental in clinching victory for himself and partner Robin Ward.  But it was not that simple.  On their final hole, number 10, VanAnrooy chipped in for a birdie and a final Stableford point tally of 45 which left them in a tie with two other teams.

Last year, the father-and-son team of Gord and Jordan Rallison had the best Stableford score but lost on a count-back. So finding themselves yet again tied for first place, Jordan insisted on a playoff format.  It was heartily agreed to by the other two teams.

A thrilling three-hole playoff ensued and VanAnrooy and Ward prevailed.  Rallison said, “Even though we lost the playoff I feel satisfied that Tyler and Robin won fair and square.”

The winners will now represent Sunnydale at a two-round tournament at Crown Isle on Sept. 29-30. If they win against the other 35 teams representing various clubs from western Canada they will be off to Pebble Beach for the world championship.

“All the best, Tyler and Robin,” a Sunnydale spokesperson said.
