The Canadian Tour Player’s Cup ended in dramatic fashion with Chris Killmer from the United States coming out on top.
The rainy Sunday in Winnipeg affected the golf conditions at Pine Ridge Golf Club.
“It wasn’t too bad, had a little bit of rain which softened the greens… it was tougher chipping or hitting out of the rough, but overall, the conditions were favourable over 30 plus degree weather,” said Shane Dick, Head Professional at Pine Ridge Golf Club.
Chris Killmer was able to put together a 69 on the score card, forcing a 4-hole playoff with Vince Cavello, who also shot a 69. Cavello had four birdies ins six holes on the back nine to force the playoff. Both were tied at -15 after 18 holes of play.
This was Chris’ first victory on the Canadian Tour; pocketing $24,000 and a trip to the RBC Canadian Open — a prestigious PGA tour event with a purse of $5.2 million.
Notables at this year’s Player’s Cup included, Matt Hill, tied for 8th (T8), Cory Renfrew (T38), Michael Gligic (T13), and Andrew Rogue (T31), who are the top money earners on the tour.
CNC wishes the best of luck to all Canadian Tour Players participating in the RBC Canadian Open.
