Cameron King closes with a 75 to win Crow­bush men’s ti­tle

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Cameron King fired a tour­na­ment-best clos­ing-round 75 to cap­ture the Links of Crow­bush Cove men’s golf cham­pi­onship here Sun­day.

King scored a four-stroke mar­gin over Jonathan Mur­phy and Harold Miller, who fin­ished tied in sec­ond place at 162.

King, who plays out of Bru­denell, trailed four other golfers – Mur­phy, Len­nie Doucette, Harold Miller and Ge­ordie Car­ragher – af­ter his Satur­day open­ing round of 83.

But King over­came brisk northwest winds at Crow­bush on Sun­day to claim the men’s cham­pi­onship, when the early lead­ers were un­able to match his fine play or mount a late chal­lenge on the fi­nal day.

King was el­i­gi­ble to play for the Crow­bush ti­tle as a di­a­mond mem­ber, which en­ti­tles him to mem­ber­ship rights at both cour­ses.

Crow­bush di­a­mond mem­bers were ex­tended the same cour­tesy at Bru­denell’s club cham­pi­onship last week­end.

King opted to skip the Bru­denell club tour­ney in or­der to play in the Is­land Am­a­teur, which also took place re­cently at Stan­hope.

Karen Jay claimed the Crow­bush women’s ti­tle, edg­ing Cathy Brown by one shot.

The Men’s First Divi­sion was

won by Garth Jay (83-81) while Ben MacCal­lum (85-82) was run­ner up.

Len Lang (86-90) was the win­ner of the Men’s Se­nior Divi­sion, of­fered for the first time, us­ing the for­ward tees.

Dave Matthes (89-93) was run­ner up.
