Royal Colwood Golf Club member Kevin Carrigan and two more Victoria golfers took the top three spots at the 2012 B.C. Golf Men’s Mid-Amateur Champion.
Carrigan led after the second round and kept it on the final day at Summerland Golf and Country Club, north of Penticton.
A birdie on the final hole capped a one-under, par 71 final round, helping Carrigan to win by two strokes.
It all came together for Carrigan with an eagle on the par 5, 478-yard 13th hole.
“I had been giving shots back on the front that I really shouldn’t have and I didn’t really hit a great tee shot to be honest,” Carrigan said in a release. “I was lucky enough to find my ball in the middle of the fairway, hit a great shot in and sink the easy putt.”
Carrigan parred the next four holes and birdied the 18th and final hole, par 5, 522 yards, for a three-day total of 212 (72-69-71).
Meanwhile two-time Men’s Mid-Amateur champion Bryan Toth (2005 and 2008), also of Victoria, ended the tourney with an impressive 214 total (74-70-70) for second overall.
Finishing third in the overall championship was Victoria’s Bryan Scott, a member of the 2011 Men’s Mid-Amateur Team B.C., who almost holed out his approach shot on his final hole, leaving himself with a tap-in birdie for a two under-par 70, 217 total (76-71-70) and solo third.
The Victoria trio of Carrigan, Toth and Scott will represent B.C. at the Canadian Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship at Point Grey Golf and Country Club from Sept. 4 to 7.
