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.
