It was a cold, wet and windy day with Brad Clapp from Sun Rivers in Kamloops placing second at 73. Hinton claimed $575, while Clapp pocketed $475.

The annual Bob Bartley Order of Merit Award was presented to Dean Claggett from Two Eagles. Claggett led the order of merit for the majority of the season and took the memorial award for the second straight year.

“A big thank you to Grant Oben and Callaway Golf Canada for their continued support of the Callaway IPGA Tour,” said Black Mountain’s Brice McDermott of the Tour. “Special thanks to host professional Jesse Crowe and his staff for allowing the tour to visit Canoe Creek for an excellent day of golf.”

Rob Tadey of Twin Lakes (Kaleden) was third with a 74, good for $425. Vernon Golf & Country Club’s Justin Baillargeon and Hillview’s Keith Vandenbrink each shot 75 to share fifth spot and earn $350 apiece.

Jeff Wills of The Rise was ninth with a 77, taking home $150.
