Experience trumps youth at Founder’s Cup in Prince Rupert

This is the seventh time out of eight tries that the seniors (age 50+) have won the handicap-based tournament.

Ken Bazansky, Frank Repole, Byron Gordon and Howard Linn took time out after their victory last weekend to pose with the Founders’ Cup.

Bazansky hit a hole-in-one on the 17th hole on Saturday, his first-ever, to tie things up versus the juniors during Day 2. Senior’s team captain Iain Cullen gave credit to the rookies (Repole, Gordon, Linn), who went a collective 9-1 in their team record, and the singles competition saw the seniors clean up 9.5 to 5.5.

“Our rookies did it for us,” said Cullen.

“It’s a little bit nerve-wracking too because they’re not playing for themselves.”
