Retrogression Decides Winner in Modified Senior Men’s Invitational due to COVID-19 Protocols

Story by Pat Payton - The St. Marys Independent Newspaper


Retrogression decided the overall winner at this year’s Senior Men’s Invitational last Wednesday, Sept. 9 at St. Marys Golf and Country Club. The golf tournament format was modified this year due to COVID-19 protocols. The Club moved forward with a crossover tee-sheet to get golfers on the course in a safe manner.

Terry Kum, of Kitchener, and John Malcolm, of Bayfield, both finished the regulation 18 holes with two-over-par scores of 74. The tie was broken by retrogression and the 2020 title went to Kum, an eight-handicapper.

Finishing one shot back was Errol Lake, of Brampton. A 10-handicapper, Lake was overall low net winner with a 65.

A total of 116 golfers--in six age divisions--competed in the Senior Invitational, sponsored by the Triple Bogey Brewing Company.

Among the St. Marys Golf and Country Club members who posted good scores were: Rick Fifield (76), Eric Henkemans (77), Jamie Hodgins (77), Rich Parsons (79), Greg Thompson (80), and Merlin Malinowski (81). Stratford golfers Ted Hopkinson and Willy Keller both had 81s as well.

In the 50 to 55 age division, Jamie Hodgins topped the field with his 77. He’s a six-handicapper. Dean Weber was second with a 78. Come Fournier (68) and Stephen Irwin (75) had the best net scores in this division.

In the 56 to 60 age division, Chris Webb had the best score (76) -- followed by Brad Ideson (78), David Meloff (79), Nick Pasic (80) and Chris Knowles (81). Knowles, a 12-handicapper, was low net winner in the division with a 69. Mike Brosnan (70) was second.

In the 61 to 65 age division, John Malcolm finished first with his 74 -- followed by Gerard Denomme (77), Shawn Humphrey (78), Wally Keating (78) and Rich Parsons (79). Errol Lake was the low net winner (65), followed by Larry Coupar (71) and Larry Torrance (72).

With Kum the overall gross winner, Rick Fifield’s 76 topped the field in the 66 to 70 age grouping. Eric Henkemans (77) was second, Rod Dench (77) third, Greg Thompson (80) fourth and Willy Keller (81) fifth. The best net scores (68) in the division belonged to Peter Gill and Jim Shute.

In the 71 to 75 age division, Garry Spence (78) was first (retrogression) -- followed by Bruce Marshall (78), Vaughan Peckham (85) and Don Wright (85). Mike Sivilotti (69) was the low net winner, with Doug Morton (71) second.

In the 76 and over division, Cliff Brown finished first with an 80 -- followed by Derek John Orr (81). Low net winner was James Dunlop (68), with Dick Harback (74) second.
