Veteran Canadian Tour Player Matt Daniel continued his fine form of late, carding a score of 66 at Kings Links to top Abbotford’s Josh Taylor and Langley’s Jeremy Paradis by 2 shots. Daniel’s round was capped off with a string of 4 birdies in a row on thru holes 14 to 17 en route to a five-under par 31. Daniel outscored one of VGT’s deepest fields of the year that included 3-time VGT Order of Merit Winner Bryn Parry and former #1 World Amateur Nick Taylor along with a total of 10 regulars on the Canadian Tour. For his great play, Daniel earned $1,100 and 1,500 points, vaulting him to #4 on the Cleveland Golf/ Srixon Canada Order of Merit.

With a win, a 3rd and 4th place finish through four VGT events, Savage’s play has earned him top honours on the Amateur Order of merit with 3,210 points over good his friend Greg Bismeyer who holds 2nd place with 3,050 points.
