Jesse Galvon holds on to claim Alberta Mid Amateur Title
Alberta Golf (Calgary) – Wet conditions Thursday for the final round of the Alberta Men’s Mid Amateur Championship at Earl Grey Golf Club.
Jesse Galvon of the Glencoe Golf and CC had a 4 shot lead to start the day and extended it to 6 shots by the turn but once the weather started turning Galvon gave 4 shots back in a 5 hole stretch. Great play by Bearspaw’s Emmett Oh on the back nine created some big time drama. Oh birdied the 16th hole to get within 1 but had birdie putts on 17 and 18 just slide by.
Galvon stepped up and drained a birdie putt on 18 for a 2 shot victory.
The 31 year old win’s his first ever Alberta Mid Amateur title.
