FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Gormley ON - Station Creek Golf Club in Gormley ON was host course to the Great Lakes Tour (GLT) Regular Series Event #5 on Monday July 6. The course was a true test for the Tour's largest field of the season which also saw the beginning of a wonderful relationship with the PGA of Quebec. On the line for the event was 10 exemptions into the very historic Promutuel Insurance Quebec Open presented by Baton Rouge with the top 2 finishers receiving their entry fee paid.
Leading the way at Station Creek was Drew Nesbitt (Oro-Medonte) who earlier won the GLT Shootout at Wyndance GC to earn paid entries for the season into all Great Lakes Tour Events. Nesbitt started his day with a bogey on the first hole but followed it up by making birdies on four of the next five holes. He made the turn at 2 under par and had 4 birdies on the back nine including a great 3 on the tricky par 4 18th finishing hole to secure the victory...
Finishing in second place just one shot off the lead was Jim Kenesky (Waterdown) who played a flawless front nine of three birdies and 6 pars and hit 7/9 greens in regulation and 6/7 Fairways. His back nine was not as tidy as he made a bogey on the par 3 11th hole and an untimely three putt from 15 feet on the par 4 14th hole which ultimately left him one shot off the lead.
Rounding out the top 10 and earning an exemption into the Quebec Open July 16-19 are as follows:
Drew Nesbitt earned $850, a Quebec Open Entry and 500 points in the season long Order of Merit. Nesbitt moved up the standings and currently sits in 2nd place. Jim Kenesky earned $525, a Quebec Open Entry and 300 points in the Order of Merit race. Kenesky made the biggest move up the current standings from 34th to 11th. David M. Sheman (Newmarket) maintains his lead in the Order of Merit with 1707.50 points after his tie for fourth at Station Creek.
