After a Runner-up finish in the Championship Amateur Flight at Kings Link’s last Monday, Derek Wray continued his fine play on the Vancouver Golf Tour at the MTC NORTHVIEW OPEN with a solid round of 2-under par 70 to capture his first VGT Amateur Title this year. With the Ridge Course stretched to its max of 7,000 yards, Wray fired off 5 birdies and 3 bogeys for a three-shot victory over last week’s Amateur winner Geoff Butt. After the round, Wray (a local at Northview) commented on his play as being riddled with ups and downs. ‘I didn’t exactly strike the ball as planned’ stated Wray. ‘I’ve played Northview lots of times, but haven’t been in some of the places I was in today! It seemed that whenever I had a 30-40 footer, it went in for birdie, but for some reason I couldn’t capitalize on any of my 5-10 footers’ I guess I’m pretty happy with the overall score and the fact that it resulted in a victory, but I know I have some refining to do for the upcoming events in the VGT schedule’.
