Hillview’s Keith Vandenbrink has reached the final-four in IPGA match play.
Vandenbrink was on fire Monday afternoon at Tower Ranch, defeating Clay Stothers of the Okanagan Golf Club 7 and 6.
The players tied the opening three holes before Vandenbrink hit driver-5-wood to within four feet and made eagle on the par-5 fourth and birdied six and seven. He won the eighth hole go up four after nine and took No. 10 before a birdie on No. 11.
“I played 18 holes at Predator in the morning (with some good friends) and it was a good warm-up for the afternoon 18 at Tower Ranch,” said Vandenbrink.
