Milton ON - With rain soaked course conditions and winds blowing up to 60km/hr, Rattlesnake Point Golf Club Sidewinder in Milton ON was playing it's toughest. However, Ed Maunder found a way to deal with the adverse conditions and battle his way to a one under par 71, a two shot win, and the John H. Davis Cup.
Maunder made 5 birdies and 4 bogies to card his 71. His up and down round was 2 shots better then 2011 John H. Davis Cup Champion and current PGA of Ontario Assistant's Champion Alf Callowhill. Maunder seemed to hover slightly under par all day, while Callowhill never saw his round go below par on route to one over par 73.
The win for Maunder gave him his 5th out of 8 events this season, the most all time in a single GHT schedule. Maunder is also the first player to earn over $3000 with a total of $3040.00....
Another season on the Golden Horseshoe Area Golf Tour has concluded in record breaking fashion.
"Eddie had a wonderful season and he's such a great player to have compete on the GHT. What he did this year from a win total and scoring average perspective was truly impressive and should not go unnoticed." says GHT President Jim Kenesky. "The lineup of golf courses were the best in years and not easy to score at such a consistent pace. Ed earned every ounce of the John H. Davis Cup."
The Golden Horeseshoe Area Golf Tour will be entering it's 30th season in 2014 and promises to keep improving the player experience. "I am extremely excited about the upcoming 30th season and the future of the GHT. We have some unique ideas going forward that will help promote participation and increase payouts." says GHT President Jim Kenesky. "I understand we have many PGA of Canada professionals in the Hamilton/Halton region and I guarantee there will be something for everyone to play for while keeping the social aspect alive. The new scoring software provided by Golf Genius Software has given us the opportunity to create many different events within one tournament. It's going to be a great 2014 season"
The GHT would like to thank all the host courses and players for supporting the Tour in 2013. Though the season is over the GHT still has the Two Man Team Event remaining on the schedule. The Two Man Team Event is set to on Tuesday October 15 at Hidden Lake Golf Club and will feature teams comprised of two GHT Members or one GHT Member with one PGA of Canada Member playing in a 6-6-6 format.
