VGT TOURNAMENT IN REVIEW
Sonic Transport Open
Pagoda Ridge Golf Course
June 13, 2020
It was a memorable day during the 2020 Sonic Transport Open at Pagoda Ridge. From a hole-in-one to impressive come backs on the final 9 holes, our players put on a show in another sold-out field! Weather conditions were cloudy throughout the day, but with little wind, players were going low.
In the Men’s Championship flight, it was 15-year-old Ethan Posthumus from Meadow Gardens GC who stole the show! It started off an even battle with Jacob Vanderpas heading to the back nine. After a bogey on 12, Ethan went on an incredible 5-under stretch of 3 holes that included a birdie, hole-in-one, and eagle on holes 13-15!! What can you say, it was Ethan’s day! A stretch of holes that even a PGA tour pro would be delighted to have on their scorecard. With a final birdie on 18, Ethan won his second VGT summer tour event with a 4-stroke victory, finishing with a 65 (-7) total!
Euna Han from Swan-e-set Bay Resort was center stage in the Women’s Championship division. Down by a stroke on the back nine, Euna made a late charge and took home her 3rd summer tour victory of the year by 3 strokes with a score of 66 (-6) over Yeji Kwon, Angela Arora and Emma Yang. In the Women’s A/B division, Candice Chan from Richmond CC had a sizeable lead, finishing at (+5) 77 with Connie Hang and Claudia Zhang in a tie for second at (+14).
It was the battle of the Michaels in Flight A and Michael Blundell from BC Player’s Club took home the victory shooting 72 (E), edging out runner-up Michael Seeley by a single shot.
Andy Banks from BC Golf South Fraser Region came out on top in Flight B with a 74 (+4) score with Ben Dowell ending up in second with 79 (+7).
As always, we would to thank our event sponsors, the course maintenance crew, and Pagoda Ridge for hosting and finally our VGT team members for assisting with announcing, timing and rules. You all made this event possible.
Continued thanks to all of our partners, in particular our 14-year Tour Title Sponsor, IGA Stores of BC and 14-year Order of Merit Sponsor Cleveland Golf / Srixon Canada for allowing us to run the VGT professionally week-in-week out for our BC players, particularly during this Covid-19 pandemic!
