Coming off his victory last week at the Vancouver Open held at the Vancouver Parks Golf courses, North Vancouver’s Bryn Parry was in Quebec City this week for the Titleist & Footjoy Canadian PGA Assistants’ Championship. As if to show he deserved the $5,000 bonus that came from the Vancouver Golf Tour to help him pay for the first stage of PGA Tour Qualifying School, he got off to a record start in Quebec. His first round 63 broke the course record at Golf de la Faune by two shots and left him with a four shot lead after round one.
While Parry didn’t win this week, he closed with rounds of 74 and 70, he did manage a very respectable tie for second place and earned $5,000 for his efforts. Not a bad couple of weeks. With $15,000 in earnings in his past two events, Parry is looking to be Canada’s next best hope to make it on the PGA Tour. Let’s hope he can continue his great play into November!
Congratulations to Matt Palsenbarg of Northview Golf and Country Club on his victory in the Titleist & Footjoy Canadian PGA Assistants’ Championship. Palsenbarg fired rounds of 70, 67 and 69 for a one stroke victory and earned $9,000 with a par on his final hole.
