2018 Golfathon for ALS
Head Professional Alec Hubert and Assistant Professional Andrew Bentley took on a great challenge on Thursday June 28 – to play as many rounds as possible in the PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS. With a goal of 15 rounds, they teed off at 3:50am and played continuously until 9:24pm when they reached their goal.
Not only did they play a lot of holes, but they played well! Alec’s average score was 70.93 and he was -16 cumulative to par over the day (an improvement of 23 shots over 2017!). His worst round was 79 (in the dark at the start) and best round was 67. There was a stretch of 7 rounds in a row where he was under par, largely due to the 55 birdies and 2 eagles he made through the day. Alec’s activity tracker recorded over 65 000 steps! In Bentley’s first appearance at the PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS, he chalked up 26 birdies, including all the par 3’s for an overall scoring average of 76.2. He scored 75 or 76 on 9 out of the 15 rounds with a low round of 72.
