PGA of Ontario Mixed Team Series is won with a 59

CAMBRIDGE, ON - After the severe weather Southern Ontario has dealt with in the past couple of days, it was blue skies and sun when the PGA of Ontario took their Mixed Team Series to the stellar conditioned Cambridge Golf Club.  The Mixed Team Series is a scramble format and it finds one Female PGA Professional paired up with one male PGA Professional and it always ends in excitement.  In the two previous years, this tournament has gone to a playoff but this year there was none.  The team of Lindsey Edmunds (Nike Golf) and Gareth Raflewski (RiverBend Golf Community) started blazing hot and didn't cool down for the rest of the day. 

 

The duo finished their round at an incredible 13-under par 59, and was 8-under on the back nine.  Walking off the 18th green all Edmunds could do was smile and say, "We played very good".  Enough said.  Fourteen birdies and a bogey, as impressive as it was, narrowly topped the team of Alexa Kim (Uplands Golf Club) and leaderboard mainstay Billy Walsh (Fairtree Golf Centre) who finished their round at 12-under 60 to take second spot.  "I'd like to say that I contributed anything to our score today," said Raflewski after the round. "As our playing partners will attest, Lindsey did most of the legwork."

 

Lindsey Edmunds is playing her first event since joining the PGA of Ontario this year.  "It's a great way to start, I'm going to try and play in as many PGA of Ontario events as I can.  It's a busy time of year for (Nike) but I'll try and make it out".  Raflewski, on the other hand, is having a busy year for himself in a completely different manor.  He is a putting and short game wizard and is busy coaching the likes of Christina Kim (LPGA), Jane Park (LPGA), Natalie Gleadall (Symetra Tour), Nicole Vandermande (Symetra Tour), and Michael Gligic (PGA Tour Canada Winner).

 

All of the eighteen teams were under par today and is a testament to the quality of golf in the ladies division of the PGA of Ontario.  For full hole by hole scores from the PGA of Ontario Mixed Team Series CLICK HERE
