Kevin Carrigan Captures BC Mid-Amateur Championship

(June 13, 2012)

A runnerup in last year's BC Amateur Championship, Carrigan'a big break came at the 478-yard par-5 13th hole, even though he wasn't pleased with his drive.

"I had been giving shots back on the front that I really shouldn't have and I didn't really hit a great tee shot to be honest," stated the champion. "I was lucky enough to find my ball in the middle of the fairway, hit a great shot in and sink the easy putt."

"I am really happy with this win," smiled Carrigan, who took the tournament lead with Tuesday's second round of 3-under 69 before closing with a 71 today and a 4-under par total of 212

Two-time Men's Mid-Amateur champion Bryan Toth (2005/2008) of Gorge Vale GC in Victoria, also registered an eagle at the 13th hole and was one-shot back of the lead coming to 18 but had to settle for a par and his second consecutive round of 70.

Another Colwood member, Bryan Scott, a member of the 2011 Men's Mid-Amateur Team, posted a closing round of 70 to finish in third place at 217.

In the Master-40 division, a playoff was needed to decide Courtenay's Greg Koster as the eventual champion after birdieing his final hole in regulation to get into a two-man playoff with Pitt Meadow resident Greg Bismeyer.

"Today was a real struggle," claimed Koster. "I never really got going enough to challenge for the overall Championship but I am glad I held it together to claim the Master-40."

The trio of Victoria players, Carrigan, Toth and Scott, won't have far to go to represent British Columbia at the Canadian Men's Mid-Amateur Championship. It is being hosted at Vancouver's Point Grey Golf and Country Club September 4-7, 2012.

Running concurrently with the individual Championship during the first two rounds was the White/Haddrell Club Team Championship won by Royal Colwood Golf Club and members Kevin Carrigan (72-69) and Bryan Scott (76-71) of Victoria. The two-man club teams were selected following the second day of play based on clubs with two or more competitors.
