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.

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.
