Vic golfers sweep top three at B.C. mid-amateur title

Vic trio Kevin Carrigan, Bryan Toth and Bryan Scott win B.C. Men's Mid-Amateur Championship, hosted by Summerland Golf and Country Club

Royal Colwood Golf Club member Kevin Carrigan won the B.C. Golf Men's Mid-Amateur Championship at the Summerland Golf and Country Club

Royal Colwood Golf Club member Kevin Carrigan and two more Victoria golfers took the top three spots at the 2012 B.C. Golf Men’s Mid-Amateur Champion.

Carrigan led after the second round and kept it on the final day at Summerland Golf and Country Club, north of Penticton.

A birdie on the final hole capped a one-under, par 71 final round, helping Carrigan to win by two strokes.

It all came together for Carrigan with an eagle on the par 5, 478-yard 13th hole.

“I had been giving shots back on the front that I really shouldn’t have and I didn’t really hit a great tee shot to be honest,” Carrigan said in a release. “I was lucky enough to find my ball in the middle of the fairway, hit a great shot in and sink the easy putt.”

Carrigan parred the next four holes and birdied the 18th and final hole, par 5, 522 yards, for a three-day total of 212 (72-69-71).

Meanwhile two-time Men’s Mid-Amateur champion Bryan Toth (2005 and 2008), also of Victoria, ended the tourney with an impressive 214 total (74-70-70) for second overall.

Finishing third in the overall championship was Victoria’s Bryan Scott, a member of the 2011 Men’s Mid-Amateur Team B.C., who almost holed out his approach shot on his final hole, leaving himself with a tap-in birdie for a two under-par 70, 217 total (76-71-70) and solo third.

The Victoria trio of Carrigan, Toth and Scott will represent B.C. at the Canadian Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship at Point Grey Golf and Country Club from Sept. 4 to 7.
