Crowe cashes Bermuda bucks

Armstrong’s Jesse Crowe and Salmon Arm’s Cody Bell bagged $500 for placing 25th in the inaugural Nike Golf PGA Team Championship of Canada

Armstrong’s Jesse Crowe and Salmon Arm’s Cody Bell bagged $500 for placing 25th in the inaugural Nike Golf PGA Team Championship of Canada at The Mid Ocean Club in Tucker’s Town, Bermuda last week.

There was a $90,000 purse with Bill Walsh and Danny King of Ontario claiming the $12,000 first prize. King was the PGA of Canada’s No. 1 ranked player and Walsh was rated fourth. They finished at 21-under for three days.

“The golf course is beautful,” said Crowe, head pro at Salmon Arm Golf & Country Club. “There are a few tee boxes where if you step too far to the right, you’re in the ocean.

“It was very difficult weather for the alternate shot the second day. It was some of the worst wind I have ever encountered. It was a great event and a first-class tourney.”

Crowe and Bell were in 11th spot at 5-under after the opening best-ball round.

They dipped to 15th after the alternate and then couldn’t make any serious putts while going 3-under in the scramble.

Shannon Glenesk and Justin Baillargeon of Vernon were 37th, while Bob Duncan of Strictly Golf and Jeff Wills of Michaelbrook Ranch in Kelowna were 45th.
