London Fanshawe Golfer Wins Senior Men's Golf Invitational | Fifield Second Place in Field Featuring 144 Golfers

St. Marys, Ontario - Story by Pat Payton, St. Marys Independent

A London Fanshawe Golf Club golfer topped a full field last Wednesday in the annual Senior Men’s Invitational golf tournament at the St. Marys Golf and Country Club.

Chris Webb fired a one-under-par 71 to finish first overall in a field of 144 golfers --the biggest in the tourney’s history. The second best score (a two-over 74) belonged to Rick Fifield of the St. Marys Golf & Country Club. Three other golfers finished with 75s on a hot and sometimes windy day.

Webb had splits of 38-33 during his round. He pencilled in birdies on No. 2, No. 13 and No. 16, and bogeys on No. 4 and No. 8. Fifield was 36-38 during his round, picking up birdies on two par-5s -- No. 6 and No. 12.

Other top scores from local golfers were posted by Rich Parsons (79), Jim Craigmile (81), Merlin Malinowski (81), Mark Cuthbert (82), John Cooke (83) and Neil Dust (83).

Another London Fanshawe Golf Club golfer, Dick Harback, who had a 75, had the day’s best net score (29-29-58) by a margin of seven shots. Cooke, of St. Marys G&CC, also had one of the day’s best net scores (33-35-68), and finished first in the 66-70 age group with his 83.
