British Columbia Mid-Amateur: Renfrew comes from behind for the victory
CAMPBELL RIVER, BC - Cory Renfrew, of
Cordova Bay Golf Club, shot a final-round 4-
under-par 68 to come from behind and capture
the BC Mid-Amateur Men's Championship at
Storey Creek Golf Club in Campbell River, BC.
Renfrew, 25, carded four birdies on
the day, including the winner on 18, to finish
with a tournament score of 7-under-par 209
"Heading into the tournament I
imagined I was going to need a putt to win,"
said Renfrew. "When I was on my way to the
18th hole a friend told me I needed a birdie. I
ended up with a 6 foot putt straight down the

place, and the Master-40 division title, went to
Stephen Watson, of Zone 6, with a
tournament score of 4-under-par 212.
"Beginning the day I thought I'd have to
shoot in the 60's in order to have a chance at
the overall championship," said Watson, 44, of
Nanoose Bay. "On 17 I was one shot back,
and since I knew I had the Master-40 sewn
up, I thought I'd go for it. I was in-between
clubs and didn't hit it solid and ended up with a
double bogey. I made some bad choices today
but managed to recover with a birdie on 18 to
end up with a 70 which I'm pleased with."
Defending Champion Greg Koster, who lead
both the first and seconds rounds, faltered
today and finished the tournament at 3-under-
par 213. His problems started on the par-4
9th hole with a double bogey and carried over
to the back 9 where he made two more double
bogeys to go along with four birdies. His final-
round score of 2-over-par 74 was only good
enough for 4th place.
Mid-Amateur Championship will be held
September 5-9, 2011, at the Coppinwood Golf
Club in Uxbridge, ON. Representing BC in the
Interprovincial Team Championship will be Cory
Renfrew, Brent Wilson and Stephen Watson.
