Stouffville, ON – More favourable temperatures at Spring Lakes GC for the final round of the 2022 Nicola Wealth Ontario Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship brought out the lowest scores of the week.
In the last group of the day, both David Lang (Donalda Club) and Cameron Burke (Golf Canada Club) were tied for the lead heading onto 18. Both competitors fired beautiful approach shots and had great looks left for birdie. Burke, unfortunately, couldn’t capitalize on his birdie putt which provided Lang with a huge opening to take it all. Lang took advantage of this opportunity and sank his 12-foot putt to secure the win at the 2022 Ontario Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship. Brett Walker (Burlington Golf & Country Club) had a dominating 10 birdies on his round, finishing his day at 7-under (65) and tied for third at 2-under (214).
In the Mid-Master Division, there was some fluctuation in the leaderboard over the final round. Ashley Chinner (Coppinwood Golf Club), who began the day as sole leader, would lag behind Mike Dinner (Glencairn Golf Club) on the front nine but would recover back and finish the round 1-under (216).
