Allred's in the Red
To say Scott Allred, Executive Professional at Elbow Springs GC, has been seriously close to winning a PGA of Canada national championship in the recent past might be a colossal understatement. In 2015 he finished fourth at the PGA Seniors’ Championship of Canada and fifth at the PGA Championship of Canada. Scott posted an opening-round 2-under-par 70 Tuesday at TPC Eagle Trace in Coral Springs, Fla., and leads by a shot over an impressive list of names. “When you come so close to winning so many times and you don’t, you begin to wonder if you’re ever going to get the job done,” Allred stated. “But I’m very pleased to be in the position I’m in right now, so let’s see what happens tomorrow”.
