MILTON, ON -- The PGA of Canada - Ontario Zone capped off their 2017 tournament schedule yesterday at Glencairn Golf Club with the Levelwear Fall Scramble. The Fall Scramble is a three-player team event and is without a doubt the lowest scoring and most widely contested event of the year. Levelwear Golf was on site sweetening the deal with tee gifts for all the players and generously supporting all the teams going head-to-head for the purse which measured over $17,000. Feathers were flying as every team in the sold-out tournament was under-par and twelve of those teams were ten-under or better. It was the team of Brian Cvetkovic (Rattlesnake Golf Club), Bryan Overland (Rattlesnake Point Golf Club), and Chris McClure (Rattlesnake Point Golf Club) who elevated their game, relied on a dominant putting performance and finished the round with thirteen birdies and an eagle on their way to a fifteen-under 57.
"Matching shirts was the key," the trio joked after the round. "You don't win an event like this if you don't all play well," Cvetkovic continued. "We used a lot of Chris' drives and Bryan's drives, and coming into the green all three of us were contributing. Even when it looked like we were down and out and we needed a big putt to keep the round going there was always that last guy who would step up and drain it. It definitely came down to putting. The greens were really pure, and if you hit your line the ball was going to go in."
The three guys played a practice round earlier in the week and it paid off. They took that extra little bit of course knowledge and put it to the test. "You absolutely need to find the fairway if you want to score well here," McClure added. "Most importantly, be aware of where the escarpment is or you will start second guessing yourself on the break. If you just base it off of where the escarpment is and trust your reads you can make some very key putts at key times."
The teams of Jim Currie/Nick Maracle/Curtis Pitre, Chris Hatch/Andrew McCarthy/Luke Pulla, Bill Mackenzie/John Rushnell/Rick Willan, and Kyle Docherty/Tyler Fitzgerald/Cameron Gall all finished two-back of the winning trio at 13-under 59 and nicely rounded out the top five.
