Tyler Van Anrooy wins 2016 Sunnydale Men’s Tillicum golf tournament

The return this past weekend (July 30-31) of the Sunnydale Men’s Tillicum was a great success, with everyone looking forward to next year.

A field of 115 players teed up for the two-day event in beautiful weather and on an immaculate golf course.

Tyler Van Anrooy claimed the 2016 championship with a total score of 140. But it wasn’t without a close, last-day race with Matt Irvine of Crown Isle and 15-year-old Sunnydale junior Thomas Drew.

After day one Thomas led Matt by one shot and Tyler by two. Tyler began day two with three straight bogeys but righted the ship and after #14 had a two-shot lead over both players.

Undeterred, Thomas chipped in for eagle on #16 and Matt birdied. Tyler promptly replied with his own 12-foot birdie putt to lead by one.

Thomas’ wayward drive on #18  was followed by a brilliant approach shot and up-and-down for par that put the pressure on Tyler to make his five-foot par putt for the win. Matt had to settle for his hole-in-one on #15 Saturday!

Field low net winners: Jason Gilbert 132, Dennis Lychak 138, Don Wilson 142 and Phil Davies 142.

A Flight gross winners: Thomas Drew 141, Matt Hamilton 144 and Cory Betz of Eaglecrest 148. Net side: Irvine 140, Damon Gaudet 140 and Larry Ferguson 141.

B Flight gross winners: Joel Gonyer 162, Rick Dawson 164 and Doug Rushton 164. Net side: Ralph Von Kampen 134, Jim Rhodes 138 and Wally Pettigrew 139.

C Flight gross winners: Rick Sheldon 178, Guy Traverse 179 and Jim Barr 179.

CHIP INS As everyone was enjoying the celebrations at the clubhouse after awards, Thomas could be seen practising on the range … the Tillicum Committee sincerely thanks their major sponsors, Royal LePage of Comox Valley, Reliable Auto Body, Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites and 40 Knots Vineyard and Estate Winery …
