 Unfortunately, today the world won and no more locals made their way into the main event.  Our cheers will have to be for the area players we already have playing at Whitewater July 17-20.

The second event for local players to qualify for the
2014 Staal Foundation Open wrapped up this weekend
at Fort William Country Club

The TBDGA Open Champion for 2014 is

EVAN DEGRAZIA

With a share of the lead after Day 1, Evan never looked back.  In less than ideal weather conditions, including a break on 17 for lightning, he carded a double bogey, 5 birdies and an eagle for a 67 and the win.

Evan also became the seocnd player to qualify locally for the Staal Foundation Open in July.  Judging by the way he played this weekend, Evan will do an excellent job of representing the Thunder Bay District against the PGA of Canada pro's in July.
