(Markham, Ont., October 28, 2008) - They were considered favourites coming into the inaguaral NIKE GOLF Fall Scramble presented by Easy Picker and the team of David Banks (Within Range), Danny King (Magna) and Billy Walsh (Beacon Hall) didn’t disappoint. The trio shot 11-under-par 61 to win the south course division in a playoff over Wil Koopmans (Angus Glen), Alan McDonnell (Angus Glen) and David Wettlauffer (Oakdale).
“It was more of a survival game today then golf,” said Billy Walsh referring to the windy and cold conditions. “We had a great time out there despite the weather and it feels great to win,” added Danny King.

On the North Course the team from Credit Valley represented by Head Professional Adam Cherry, Associate Professional Jon Hackett and Apprentice Mike Ramsden shot 11-under-par to win by two shots. Cherry, Hackett and Ramsden drained seven consecutive birdies over their final seven holes en route to victory.

“We played well today and it was a total team effort,” said Adam Cherry. “It was cold and the wind was hard to manage on the greens but overall it was a good time,” added Ramsden.

Other notable scores from the south course included a 10-under-par 62 from Angus Glen President Kevin Thistle, Director of Golf Dennis Firth and Assistant Professional Greg Gates. Also at 62 was the team of Dan Greenwood (Heron Point), Chris Jones, (Peterborough) and Matthew Peavoy (Heron Landing).
On the north course the team of Nate Clingersmith, Greg Colekessian and Keir Smith representing The National finished one shot behind the leaders to tie for second place with the team from Fairtree Golf Centre. That team consisted of Michael Farrugia, Patrick Johnson and John McCann.
In the season ending Bamboomer Longdrive Championship Nick Starchuk of the Glen Abbey Academy won in a playoff over John McCann of Fairtree. Both Starchuk and McCann hit drives of 363 yards in regulation which pitted the bombers against one another in the final. Starchuk clipped McCann with a drive of 343 to take $1,000 and the 2008 title.  Doug Millar of Southern Pines Golf Club claimed the Senior division with a drive of 281 yards edging Al Paterson by 3 yards.
