Ontario Men's Better Ball Championship

Three from area in top 5 of tournament

Three golfers from BruceGreySimcoe finished in the top 5 of the Ontario Men's Better Ball Championship.

Abe Holmes of Barrie Country Club combined with Justin Allen of Weston Golf and Country Club to shoot 67 (-5) and tie for 3rd, while the Owen Sound-area duo of Chris Frook and Josiah Dixon fired 68 and tied for 5th.
Winners of the event for the second consecutive year were Peter Sauerbrei of Cataraqui Golf & Country Club and Simon Reyers of Brampton Golf Club, who shot 65.

The championship was held today (May 11) at Oakdale Golf and Country Club in Downsview.

A total of 54 teams from across the province participated.

Frook and Dixon shot 67 (-5) in the rain at Cobble Beach Golf Links on May 1 to qualify for the championship.

The better ball format involves both players on the 2-person team playing their own ball.

On each hole, the two golfers on a team compare scores. The lower of the two scores - the better ball - counts as the team's score.
