VGT Tournament in Review
Brendan Dillon, Kevin Stinson and Kris Yardley tee’d off at Sandpiper Golf Course yesterday in the final group of the 2015 First Class Waste Inc Fraser Valley Open in final round action.
Dillon (Vancouver Golf Club) played some outstanding golf this weekend (68,67,70) on his way to a 6 shot victory over rookie Pro Brayden Erikson of Pheasant Glen GC. Dillon earned $3,000 for the win and Erickson pocked $1,800 for 2nd spot. This was a big weekend for both Pros as it just so happened to be Dillon’s inaugural Professional win and Ericksons pro debut. Excellent stuff gentlemen!!
Maple Ridge’s Kris Yardley took home top Amateur honors in the 54 hole event with scores of 67, 69, 79 (E) good for a 6 shot win over visiting golfer from Tokyo, Japan Manami Minote.
Top honors for the Overall Net trophy went to Chilliwack Golf Club’s Cameron Wilson with an amazing 3 day net total of -11. Wilson had a great battle going with one of VGTs regulars Trevor de Keruzek of Golden Eagle who finished with his personal best score of 78 at Sandpiper for 3 day net total of -8.
