JUNE 7, 2016
Kamloops, B.C. (PGA of BC) – In a final round that saw several players in contention for the FlightScope PGA of BC Assistants’ Championship presented by My Turn Health & Fitness Equipment Inc., Tuesday at Kamloops Golf & Country Club, Oliver Tubb (University Golf Club) finished atop the leaderboard, earning the PGA of BC Assistants’ Champion title for the second time in three years.
“Yesterday, both Darren [Griff] and Doug Morgan had played a great round, while myself, John Shin, and Alec Hubert were all in the second group,” said Tubb after his win. “When you’re three back, you know you have a chance, but you also have to play really well so I just plugged away at it.”
Tubb shot 69-67 to finish the tournament at 8-under, just one stroke ahead of Shingo Akizuki(Mayfair Lakes Golf & Country Club) and Darren Griff (Morningstar Golf Club). After Monday’s first round, Griff led the field alongside Doug Morgan (Richmond Country Club) however, a hot back nine for Tubb consisting of four birdies and just one bogey would ultimately solidify the win.
For his first place finish, Tubb cashed the $3,000 winners’ cheque, while both Akizuki and Griff take home $1,500 each. Alec Hubert (Fairmont Hot Springs Resort ) and John Shin (Northview Golf Academy) finished in tie for fourth, each taking home $900.
With a scorecard that includes an eagle on the eighteenth hole, Murray Poje (Tsawwassen Springs Golf) finished 3 strokes behind Jonas after a two-under-par 70 in the final round. Rounding out the top three is Keith Vandenbrink (Hillview Golf Club) who finished alone in third place at two-under-par. Jonas took home $1,500 for his win, while Poje and Vandenbrink earned $1,100 and $900 respectively.
