Greenwood wins Niagara Tour opener



FORT ERIE — Dan Greenwood birdied the first playoff hole to win the Niagara District Professional Golf Tour opener on a rainy Friday.

Greenwood overcame Adam Steinschifter at Bridgewater Country Club to win the Devon Design Open.

“Throughout the round I had to call on every shot in the bag. I hit a couple of timely recovery shots, two sand saves came at the right time to keep any momentum going and most of all the putter was pretty good,” said Greenwood. “I made more than a few nice par saving puts that were a little longer than you would want on a regular basis, and I was able to roll in a couple of birdies when I gave myself the opportunity.”

Up next, Twenty Valley hosts the Castle Rock Home Inspections Classic on Wednesday, June 28.

Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada National Final

Golfers from across the country descend on Niagara Falls this week for the inaugural Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada National Final.
 
Taking place Sept. 29-Oct. 1 at the famed Lookout Point Country Club in Fonthill, Ont., the national final features 25 teams—comprised of four amateurs and a PGA of Canada Professional—playing in a 36-hole Ambrose Scramble format.
 
“It’s great that such a historic and wonderful golf course like Lookout Point is hosting the very first Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada National Final,” said PGA of Canada CEO Gary Bernard. “Teams from all across Canada will undoubtedly enjoy the one-of-a-kind golf at Lookout, but they’re also going to be treated to the off-course experiences they won’t soon forget.”
 
In addition to Hyundai; TaylorMade-adidas, BioSteel and Triple Bogey Beer and will all be on-site at Lookout Point for participants to enjoy experiential brand activations.
 
“We’re excited for everyone playing in the Hyundai PGA Scramble National Final to interact with our great partners this week,” said the PGA of Canada’s Chief Business Officer Jeff Dykeman. “This really is a once in a lifetime event and for those coming to be able to say they played in the first one is pretty special.”
 
Situated on the highest point in the Niagara region overlooking Lake Ontario, Lake Erie, the Niagara River and the city of Niagara Falls, Lookout Point Country Club is an impressive venue unto itself.
 
The 1922 Walter Travis designed gem is home to World Golf Hall of Fame member Marlene Streit; two-time PGA Women's Championship of Canada winner, Cathy Sherk; five-time PGA Seniors’ Championship of Canada winner Bill Kozak; and PGA TOUR Champions winner Rod Spittle.
 
Spittle, who was named Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada ambassador earlier this year, will be on hand at Lookout Point throughout the national final. The Champions Tour winner will also be participating in a Q&A during Thursday evening’s opening reception dinner.
 
“I was thrilled to be asked to be involved with the Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada and to have the final at Lookout Point Country Club near my hometown of Niagara Falls, Ont., makes it that much more special for me,” Spittle said. “I think the concept Hyundai Canada and the PGA of Canada have come up with is a fantastic way for the every-day golfer to play some amazing golf courses in a format that’s both fun and competitive for everyone.”
 
The Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada saw thousands of golfers from across the country participate in the series of events this summer. The 25 teams participating at Lookout Point made it through local and regional qualifying events and will tee it up next week with a PGA of Canada professional playing on their team with the hopes of becoming the first ever-national champion.
 
Former PGA Tour winner and Sportsnet golf Analyst Ian Leggat will emcee the opening ceremonies, while SCOREGolf’s Rick Young will handle closing ceremonies emcee duties.
 
TSN 1150 Hamilton radio is set to conduct a live-to-air broadcast from 12-3 p.m. during Thursday’s practice round. Listeners can expect to hear interviews with Spittle, Bernard, national final participants and more.
 
Those not playing in the Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada National Final can still take part in all the action throughout the week at Lookout Point through social media.
