Shannon Glenesk of the Vernon Golf and Country Club fired rounds of 80 and 75 to finish 11-over and in a tie for 14th place at the Cleveland Golf/Srixon Canada PGA of B.C. Club Professional Championship at the Richmond Country Club.

Glenesk pocketed $283 for his efforts.

The event was won by Lindsay Bernakevitch of the Victoria Golf Club, who finished at 4-under and took home $2,700.

Heading into Tuesday’s round with a two stroke lead over host professional Mark Strong and Murray Poje of Tsawwassen Springs Golf Course, at the turn, Bernakevitch’s lead fell to just one stroke over the pair.

“I just played steady,” Bernakevitch said post-round. “I knew that without a lot of wind today, someone could make a run. But I just tried to keep the ball in play and make greens, and if I made birdies then that was great.”

On the back nine, Bernakevitch fired a total of three birdies, at one point growing his lead to five strokes over Strong and Poje.

“The greens were tough, about the same difficulty of yesterday,” Bernakevitch continued. “I don’t think I had as many good birdie opportunities today. I put myself in a few interesting spots out there, but the greens here are so true and so smooth, it was a pleasure to play on them.”

Bernakevitch finished 4-under 140 for the tournament, cashing a $2,700 cheque for his win. Strong and Poje finished in shared second at even par, cashing $1,750 each.
