Golfers fare well at WL championships

Summer sunshine contributed to two great days of golf for the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club Men’s and Ladies’ Club Championship on the weekend.

Summer sunshine contributed to two great days of golf for the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club Men’s and Ladies’ Club Championship on the weekend.

Cody Wells, assistant golf professional at the club, says the men’s and ladies’ championship saw 64 competitors.

“We had good weather both days,” Wells says. “It was amazingly warm the second day.”

For the ladies’ championships, Barb Vincent had an overall low-gross score of 165 over the two-day championship.

Receiving the best overall low-net score was Mabel Cornwall.

For the men’s,  Jordan Siegmueller was the first overall low-gross winner and club champion, with a 77/70 over the two days, winning four strokes over George McGibbon.

The men’s overall low-net champion was Rob Bardossy, with a score of 135.

Second place was Ted Golightly, who was two back from Bardossy.

On the first day, Siegmueller was four back from the leader but took the lead the second day with a one under 70, Wells says.

By Monday, the sun was overtaken by clouds, making the junior championship games a little wet. Only eight junior competitors participated.

“They all played really well anyways,” Wells says, adding that despite the rain, the top competitors received some good scores. “It was nice to see the young guys out there battling through the elements.”

The overall low-gross winner was Brett Labossiere, who shot a 78.

The overall low-net winner was Taylor Hemmond, with a net score of 71.

Receiving second low-gross was Derrick Walters, who shot a 79 gross.

For the second low-net, it was Ben Magnusson, who shot a 73.

The Mr. and Mrs. Golf Tournament takes place this weekend, starting at 9:30 a.m. both days. About 35 teams are expected to participate.
