Victoria Golf Club professional earns Richmond win

Lindsay Bernakevitch claims the 2015 Cleveland Golf/Srixon Canada PGA of BC Club Professional Championship

Victoria Golf Club’s Lindsay Bernakevitch

Maintaining his first-round lead, Victoria Golf Club’s Lindsay Bernakevitch claimed the 2015 Cleveland Golf/Srixon Canada PGA of BC Club Professional Championship, presented last week at Richmond Country Club.

Heading into the final round with a two stroke lead over host professional Mark Strong and Murray Poje of Tsawwassen Springs Golf Course, Bernakevitch’s lead at the turn fell to just one stroke over the pair.

“I just played steady,” Bernakevitch said post-round on Tuesday, Sept. 30. “I knew that without a lot of wind today, someone could make a run. But I just tried to keep the ball in play and make greens, and if I made birdies then that was great.”

On the back nine, Bernakevitch fired a total of three birdies, at one point growing his lead to five strokes over Strong and Poje.

“I don’t think I had as many good birdie opportunities today. I put myself in a few interesting spots out there, but the greens here are so true and so smooth, it was a pleasure to play on them.”

Bernakevitch finished four-under 140 for the tournament, cashing a $2,700 cheque for his win.

Bernakevitch’s win is his second of the 2015 PGA of BC season, as he claimed the Tournament of Champions in May with his amateur playing partner Erik Swinburnson.

The championship featured 39 of the top head professionals, head teaching professionals, and executive professionals in B.C.
