Calgary Golf Professional caps off outstanding Tournament season
Ridiculous. How else do you explain the season that Dustin Risdon has had on the PGA of Alberta Tour? Including last week’s Sunice Tour Championship at Sundre GC— which he won by a staggering eight shots while shooting a course record 64 in the final round — Risdon has taken seven of the eight PGA of Alberta events he entered. In his only loss he finished second — at Calgary’s Heritage Pointe in brutal conditions. The runaway Order of Merit leader and a cinch to win Player of the Year, Risdon was as self-effacing as usual when describing his season that saw him win two professional series’ events, the Pro-Junior, a Players Tour event and three championships.

Vold takes round one gold at Coyote Creek
Good weather during the 2016 golf season has become a novelty, yet today, the players lucked out with nothing but blue sky and sunshine for the final Players’ Tour event of the year. The tree lined fairways and lush greens at Coyote Creek G&RV Resort provided great course conditions, which meant low scores. Kolby Vold of Wolf Creek GR leads day one after shooting an impressive 5-under 66. Hot on Vold’s tail is Garett Jenkinson (Golf Performance Canada at Inglewood), who will go into round two only one shot back. Scott Anderson (The Golf Academy at River Bend) sits in third after shooting 2-under par 69. Fourth from the top and finishing 1-under, sits John McKiernan.

After caddying at Shaw Charity Classic, Calgary Professional Dustin Risdon will tee it up at PGA of Alberta Tour Championsip
He’s admittedly more passionate now about teaching than swinging his own sticks. For local instructor Dustin Risdon, that short-term gig — lugging the weaponry for Spain’s Miguel Angel Martin during the 2016 Shaw Charity Classic — was all about gaining knowledge to share with his students. After donning a caddie bib last week, Risdon should be wearing a bullseye Tuesday-Wednesday at the PGA of Alberta’s Sunice Tour Championship at Sundre Golf Club. “Obviously, everything has gone my way,” said Risdon, who has a sparkling scoring average of 67.11 in eight PGA of Alberta get-togethers this season. “I didn’t plan on playing this well. But I got the Assistants Championship and the PGA Championship, so I guess this would be the last one on the list.” Click here to read the full article by Wes Gilbertson – Calgary Sun.
