Rob Tadey

Rob Tadey, representing Fairview Mountain Golf Club, was named the Overall Champion of the 62nd Jackson Triggs Penticton Men’s Open.  

Tadey beat Summerland’s Nathan Ward, in a two hole playoff shooting a final round 67 (-3) for a three day total of 202 (-8). Ward shot an impressive final round 66 (-4) that was kick started early in the round, making an eagle on the second hole.

Colin Evans of Penticton Golf & Country Club, was named the Overall Low Net Winner through retrogression over Bryan Hanson (Golf Canada Club, BC), with a net score of 194 (-16).

Low round of the tournament was shot on the second day by last year’s champion, Kurtis Fontinha (Penticton Golf & Country Club), who fired an impressive 65 (-5) with eight birdies.

Fontinha finished the tournament at 211 (+1) in a three-way tie for 5th with Jackson Coates, and fellow past champion, Kim Dixon, all three proudly representing Penticton.

Mike Reimer (Bear Mountain Golf & Country Club), holed the tournament’s only Hole-In-One on the second round on the 16th hole.

There was a total of 180 golfers in attendance this year and we saw one of the deepest fields in the tournament’s history, with more than 40 golfers with a 4 handicap or lower.

Under the unique circumstances that 2020 has brought, The Club would like to thank all participants, volunteers, and sponsors for another successful weekend of fun, competitive golf.
