Alberni Golf: Proteau tops in men's tourney

Nearly 60 men teed it up for the Port Boat House Red White and Blue Tournament last Sunday at the Alberni Golf Course.

Jim Proteau had the game of the day, firing a gross 72, followed closely by one of his playing partners, Cory Neilson, two shots back at 74.

First overall net of 63 went to Jacques Giovetti, followed by Vic Carlton 67 and Lloyd (Porchy) Fairley at 68. Also with 68 were Glen Barton and Mel Trelvik; next with 69 were Ron Clark and Russ Israelson followed with net 70s by Ned Stewart, Gord Unger, Glen Trask, Bill Bjornson and Fred Fredrickson.

Completing the net scoring were Kyle Luchinski, Gord Bonner, Steve Evans and Wayne Johnstone all with 71.

The Westwind  long drive on No. 1 was won by Dallas Haggard.

The closest to the pin on No. 2 was won by Bill Bjornson and the charity closest  to the pin on No. 4 went to Peter Muggleston who pocketed $42. Peter Muggleston also had the closest to the pin on No. 13 and Craig Acland on No. 17.

There were two money pot winners with Jim Proteau collecting $56 for the only birdie on No. 4 and Muggleston collecting $36 for the only birdie on No. 13.

Next week is an open day with the closest to the pin and money pot up for grabs as well as the skins game taking place.
