Congratulations to Bear Mountain’s Riley Wheeldon this week after a convincing 4-shot win over Strathmore’s Stuart Anderson at VGT’s 3rd Major of 2015. Wheeldon fired rounds of 68, 66 for a two-day total of -10, making it his 2nd VGT Major win out of 3 this year. Wheeldon has been playing some great golf after his win at Bear Mountain back in late April and is bringing a bunch of confidence to the PGA Tour Canada season which starts at The PC FINANCIAL OPEN at Point Grey G&CC!
