Presented by Nike Golf
Stefan Cox (Calgary G&CC) & Randy Robb (Mickelson National Golf Academy) have finished a long Match Play Season on top of our 62-team field from the North and South that began back in May. Cox and Robb went undefeated throughout the summer winning 5 times to sit at the top of the South Division which led them to face off against David MacComb (Royal Mayfair GC) & Matthew Mah (Mill Woods GC) from the North. Both teams battled hard at River Bend G&RA but Cox and Robb pulled out the victory.
This marks the end of our 2023 Tournament Season!
Thank you to everyone who played this year along with all our sponsors and tournament hosts for making this another successful tournament season!
