VANCOUVER, B.C. (May 26, 2014)ISN – The Royal Colwood Golf Club team of Head Professional
Jason Giesbrecht and Club Champion Kevin Carrigan shot a -9 total of 63 to win the
TaylorMade & adidas Golf Tournament of Champions presented by Richport Ford on Monday
at the University Golf Club.
Giesbrecht and Carrigan fired a blistering -6 front 9 score of 30, which included
4 birdies and an eagle at the fifth.
The duo would make their only bogey on the 10th hole, but another two birdies and
an eagle at the 13th meant a back 9 score of 33 and final score of 63, two better
than the Richmond Country Club duo of Head Professional Mark Strong and amateur
Dave Gazley and the Victoria Golf Club team of Head Professional Lindsay Bernakevitch
and amateur Craig Doell, who each shot scores of 65.
“We had a lot of fun out there,” said Giesbrecht. “We went on a nice little run
on the front.”
“I think the key was we always had two putts for birdie or better,” said Carrigan.
“When you have 35 chances for birdie, that often leads to good things.”
Giesbrecht said the win continues a great run for Carrigan, which has included three
team titles in the last two years.
“It means a lot for the membership of Royal Colwood,” said Giesbrecht. “Kevin is
a very good player, but by no means is he guaranteed a spot as our champion. We
pride ourselves on a high level of competition at our club and it truly is an honour
to be able to play with our Club Champion at a great event like this.”
“Jason’s great to play with,” said Carrigan. “We played well together and to be
able to bring the trophy back to Colwood means a lot to us.”
The excellent team at TaylorMade & adidas Golf were at University Golf Club early
Monday to help distribute the tee gifts of Adizero shoes to the amateurs and branded
backpacks to the professionals.
