Sid Segsworth back in winning form at Idylwylde Senior

Idylwylde Senior Invitational

The tug of war between Dave Pulkkinen and Sid Segsworth continues at the Idylwylde Senior Invitational. Segsworth, who last won the event in 2005, snapped a two-year string for Pulkkinen, picking up a one stroke victory over Tim Gordon of Lively. Segsworth shot a 72, Gordon 73 with Elmer DeBenedet (Lively) and John Wellard (North Bay) both two more shots back at 75.

Tod Landriault of Lively rounds out the top five with a 76, the same score that North Bay's Don Miller posted in capturing the second flight. Remaining flight winners included Ken Ellis (Timberwolf - 81), Leo Boudreau (Lively - 84), Noah Bertuzzi (Idylwylde) and Ray Dugas (Forest Ridge) in the sixth and final flight.

Junior Golf - 2008 John Hause Memorial

Despite the fact that golf courses these days seem to include their fair share of younger duffers, numbers remain down for tournament play at the Junior level and below. Such was the case with the 2008 John Hause Memorial, an event that drew well over a hundred golfers just a few years back, topping out at 45 entries this time around.

In the end, Eric Hatton took advantage of home club membership to shoot the day's low score, capturing the Juvenile division with a 73, one shot better than Cory Vaillancourt and four up on Taylor Dupuis and Aashu Garg. Brennan Doyle of the Timberwolf took top spot in the Junior ranks, carding a 76, comfortably ahead of Alex Lisowski and Scott Wiseman.

Nick Quesnel finished first among the Bantam golfers, recording a very respectable score of 80 while Casey McNeil matched that tally in winning the Girls category.

2008 NOPGA Pro-Pro Best Ball

Just five shots separated the field, top to bottom, as the NOPGA hosted their annual Pro-Pro Best Ball event. When the dust settled, it was the Pine Grove Golf Club tandem of George Lacko and Brendan Burns-Fournier who would earn bragging rights this time around, shooting a one-under par 71 at the Idylwylde Golf & Country Club.

A pair of teams just one stroke back as both the Idylwylde tandem of Ryan Bastien and Kyle Paquette and the Timberwolf family connection of Sam and Nick Yawney carded even par 72's. Paul Schweyer (Idylwylde) teamed with Sault Ste Marie pro Jeff Hamilton in posting a score of 73 while Kevin Poole/Cam Muirhead (Ridge at Manitou - 74) and Jeff Mancini/Tyler Hummel (North Bay G & CC - 76) round out the field.
