They went three extra holes Thursday to determine the Spallumcheen Senior Men’s Open Golf Tournament champion.

Greg Jackson of Rivershore in Kamloops and Gary Ritchie of Salmon Arm each shot 71 with Jackson winning the playoff.

There was a field of 120 from all over the Okanagan Valley, Alberta and Washington State.

David Palmer of Kelowna was the overall low net winner at 63.

Alf Head of Spallumcheen Golf & Country Club carded a 75 to take the 8-12 flight low gross, while Don Purdie of the B.C. Players Club topped the 13-16 flight with an 81.

Harry Bowker of Spall ruled the 17+ division with an 84, while Bob Hands of Kelowna Golf & CC claimed the Super Senior 75+ years division with a low net 73. Dave Cameron of Kelowna was the 0-7 low net champion at 68, while Larry Petrie of Spall pocketed the 8-12 flight low net prize.

Bob Collins of Spall, who told a few jokes at the turn, produced a 65 for 13-16 flight low net honours. Jeff Ellam of Spall took the 17+ low net at 63.

Closest-to-the-pin prizes went to Ken Kurbis of Spall (0-7), Ritchie, Collins and Glenn Malcolm of Calgary (17+).

Nobody aced the seventh hole for $5,000.
