DUO OF DANNY KING AND JAMES SEYMOUR SHOOT 63 TO CAPTURE G&G BRANDS PRO PRO TEAM SERIES PRESENTED BY MERIT TRAVEL GOLF VACATIONS
Thank you for competing in the 2022 G&G Brands Pro Pro Team Series presented by Merit Travel Golf Vacations at Nobleton Lakes Golf Club in Nobleton, Ontario on May 30, 2022.
We had absolute perfect weather conditions with sunny skies and temperatures reaching close to 30 degrees. That heat transpired on the course as well.
BEAUTIFUL DAY FOR GOLF
Our title sponsor of the tournament was G&G Brands, a leading Canadian wholesale supplier of lifestyle and sporting goods. Their team of representatives were on hand at registration and on the first hole meeting and greeting our pros. Brad German, President of G&G Brands was thrilled to retain title sponsorship of the event and to be onsite with his team.
“It’s been a long couple of years! We haven’t been to a lot of events in person but we're excited to be here to support the tournament and seeing everyone having a good time’, said German. With COVID dominating headlines the past few seasons, German believes the golf industry is back on the rise.
“We're all pretty lucky to be in the golf industry. We have an amazing new marketing campaign post COVID with getting outside and a lot of new golfers playing the game, I think the future is bright – with G&G Brands specifically we like to do different things, it’s all about creating a unique atmosphere”, said German.
That unique atmosphere was created post event with a Cornhole tournament on the putting green that players engaged in after their round of golf. Jake McNulty and Dylan Welsh came out as winners of the fun event and all finalists received a prize pack from G&G Brands.
The tournament was also a shotgun start with players teeing off at 10:00 am – another post COVID norm for events and held in absolute perfect conditions on the course. Director of Golf at Nobleton Lakes Golf Club Jon Mozes thanked his head superintendent, Jason Bindi and his team of 13 staff members who prepared the course after hosting a tournament the previous day.
“What a wonderful day here at Nobleton Lakes, we couldn’t be happier with how the day turned out”, said Mozes. “It was great to see all our professionals out having fun. Thank you to the PGA of Ontario and our sponsors for helping make the Pro Pro Team Series a huge success. Congratulations to our winners as well!”, Mozes added.
THE DUO ON FIRE
The winners, Danny King and James Seymour took advantage of the course conditions after shooting a blistering 9-under 63 to capture the title. Since it was a team event, both credited each other for the terrific play.
“We said in the parking lot, wouldn’t it be nice to win today”, said King, eluding to Seymour’s first event.
“It’s such an underrated golf course, really good shape, the greens and fairways with some tough rough”.
But really, who carried who?
“Oh, James!”, said King. “I’m the old guy, right”.
“At the end of the day, it was a ham and egg effort, we both did very well and we got the win so we're both really happy”, said Seymour.
Andrew McCarthy and Michael Resciniti finished in second place, two strokes behind the leaders while Emma de Groot and Stewart Bannatyne carded a 66 for third place.
SUN AND SOME SHADE
King and Seymour also each received a voucher for a free pair of non RX sunglasses compliments from Maui Jim, our official eyewear sponsor post event!
Congratulations also to Darrien Currie who was the lucky winner of a three day stay at Casa de Campo Resorts and Villas in the Dominican Republic. Thank you to Rob Coulter from Merit Travel Golf Vacations for presenting that to Darrien!
