Team Edwards leads Glacier Greens Shoot Out

Final round of competition goes this Sunday with alternate shot format

On Saturday, June 15 clearing skies, light winds and warm temperatures greeted the 84 participants in the 18th running of the Glacier Greens Men’s Club  Shoot Out. This is a three-week tournament with three different formats. This was the second week and the format was team scramble.

The father-son team of Bob and Jeff Edwards are leading the gross side with a two-week total of 133. Bud Bryan and Bruce Coulter, Jim Livingstone and Doug McArthur, and the father-son team of Mike and Terran Berger are all tied for second place at 134. Three other teams are tied at 137.

On the net side, last year’s winners Hugh Scoullar and Richard Wand are tied for first with Joe Dunham and Adrian Haut at 110. Dave Buckley-Jones and Wayne Ogilvie are next at 112 followed by Len Doyle and Gary Wood at 113, Henry Bonde and Greg Conway at 114 and Don Marchand and Rick Verbeek at 115.

Team KPs went to Ted Sauve and Tim Hautziner on #4, Jim Larocque and Stan Mills #7, Wiener Hay and Wayne Wood #12, Glen Parsons and Steve Ellis #15 and Roy Hagg and Larry Lott on #17. Thanks to our hole sponsors, Scott Fraser (Royal LePage), Gary Weibe (Boston Pizza), Gary Wood (Slegg Lumber) and Bill Kelly (Bill Kelly Golf). Two snips held up in the A flight and five in the B flight.

Sunday, June 23 is the final day of the Shoot Out and the format is the dreaded alternate shot. “Better start practising how to politely say, ‘Sorry, partner,'” said men’s director Len Doyle.
