Ian Robinson defended his Men’s Jubilee title with a one-stroke victory over Dylan Kerbrat at the Centennial Course in Prince Rupert.
But it wasn’t pretty.
“I bogied 17 and 18 … I was leaking oil and just playing it safe,” Robinson said of his final round three-over-par 74. “Yeah, it wasn’t pretty.”
On 18, Kerbrat missed a birdie putt leaving Robinson a two-putt from six feet and ultimately a tap-in for the win.
Robinson, a two-handicap, posted rounds of 70-75-74 for a 54-hole total of 219. Kerbrat was second, carding a score of 220 and Kyle Vale was third at 238.
For Robinson, the highlight of the tournament came in the first round when he posted a one-under 70.
“I was three-over after the front nine and then birdied five in a row from 10-14. That made the round, it was pretty crazy.”
Robinson held a four-shot lead heading into the second round, but found the lead cut to two by the end of 36 holes. That lead also vanished when Kerbrat took the lead at the turn putting Robinson one down. But bogies by Kerbrat on 11, 12 and 13 and Robinson pars put the defending champion back in the lead.
“I birdied 15 to put me three-up and … by that time you’re playing against [Kerbrat] not the leaderboard. I was just trying to play safe,” he said.
Eight-handicapper Bob Hays won the Overall Low Net title finishing with a net score of 202. Brian Holkestad finished second with the net score of 210 and James Sawyer was third with a 218.
Larry Stienke won the First Flight title finishing up at 242. Greg Campbell was the Second Flight champ with a 261 and Ralph van Kessel was the Third Flight winner with a 270.
