Brandon Markiw marvellous at the Mid Am
Brandon Markiw of the Edmonton Petroleum G&CC shot the low round of the day at the Glendale G&CC to finish five shots ahead of the nearest competitor. Markiw was the only player to finish the 54 hole championship in red numbers. He finished at three-under-par with rounds of 68, 75 and 70.

Markiw’s final round was highlighted by an eagle on the par five fifth hole. Markiw adds the Mid Amateur trophy to his collection of provincial hardware. He won the Alberta Open in 2004 as a 16-year-old. 14 years later he adds the province’s preeminent title for those aged 25 and over.
Jeff Murdoch claimed the Mid Master title by two strokes and will join Markiw and local Glendale member Phil Mckenzie on the Alberta Mid Amateur Interprovincial team who will compete later this August at the Victoria Golf Club during the Canadian Mid Amateur Championship.
Special thanks to our two host facilities, their staff and membership – the Glendale G&CC and Stony Plain GC.
