Senan Foley goes wire to wire to win Alberta Senior Mens Championship
Alberta Golf (St. Albert) – Senan Foley is your 2021 Alberta Senior Mens Champion. The Elbow Springs golfer out of Calgary lead wire to wire all week long to claim the title but the finish certainly provided drama. James Varnam of Edmonton put on a charge with a front 9 33 that included birdies on 4 of his first 7 holes but cooled off on the back nine to finish in a tie for 2nd.
Mike Mannion from Royal Colwood in Victoria briefly tied the lead before bogey’s on 17 and 18 left him one back in a tie for second with Varnam.
Senan Foley came to 18 with a 3 shot lead but his approach shot ended up in the back bunker, his next shot was past the pin and into the rough and he wasn’t able to get up and down. The double bogey finish was still good for the one shot wire to wire victory.
