The Whitevale team advanced to the Championship Day of the Senior Ryder Cup (SRC) at Thornhill G&CC on August 31st. SRC is an eight-man team of six seniors and two super seniors playing different 2-man match play formats, all at gross. We won our division against Scarboro, Emerald Hills and Summit, and then won a playoff at Dundas Valley. Sixteen clubs geographically spread from Oshawa to Windsor to Owen Sound and upper NY State won their divisions, including Whitevale.
Captained by the writer, the team of Mike McGarragle, Barry Catterall, Jim Glover, Kevin Hughes, Al Swartz, John Trimble and Bob Nebel had a difficult outing at Thornhill and finished well of the pace. It was still a successful first year in this event and the Club is looking forward to future success. Many thanks to team members Dec Dunn, John McCormick, Ron Bell and John Toman for substituting as required over the summer with great skill and determination. The participants have enjoyed the competition immensely.
Walt Lemon, Team Captain
