BRAMPTON — The final event of the Golf Ontario season took place on September 21 at the Brampton Golf Club with the Ontario Senior Men’s Better-Ball Championship, presented by St. Kitts. This was the second year in a row that Brampton hosted the event and much like 2016, it was a scorcher with temperatures hitting the high 20s for most of the round.

One pair that was able to handle the heat was the team of Guelph’s Frank Morris and Ancaster’s Tim Lee.  Morris, from Cutten Fields Golf Club, and Lee, a Golf Ontario Public Player, shot an incredible six-under (65) to claim the title by three shots.

Afterwards the two spoke about their dominant performance. “After we bogeyed the very first hole, things were not looking too good,” said Lee. “But we turned things around, made a few putts and got lucky.”

The duo acknowledged that what helped them during the day was their ability to give themselves two chances to score well on each hole. “I think the strongest part was that we both kept our own ball in play,” added Morris. “We had two chances on every hole and never left the other guy on his own. It made for comfortable putting because we knew we were already secure.”

This is the first provincial title for both Morris and Lee. The two have teamed before but this was their first together at a provincial championship.

There was a four-way tie for second place at three-under (68). Sharing the silver were the teams of: Mississauga’s Bruno Ardito and Brampton’s Gary Parker (both representing the host club of Brampton), Welland’s Sandy Billyard and Collingwood’s Michael Jackson (the 2014 champions), Whitby’s Brad McConnell and Gormley’s Paul Kirkpatrick, and Welland’s Frank Mortensen and Port Colborne’s Tony Ravenda.
