Golf: McCulloch wins NOTL Legends Cup

A new Legend was crowned at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club this week as Doug McCulloch won the annual Legends Cup competition.

The tournament, played over two consecutive Tuesdays, is for men over 80.

McCulloch carded a one-over par 37 and then held on with a 46 in the tough second round to beat Gerry Shelly (41-44) by two shots. John Reid (43-48) finished third.

Some of the youngest golfers at the NOTL club also competed in the junior club championships.

In the junior boys under-19 category, Bruce DeLuca was victorious (41-40=80), edging Jake Kocsis (41-43=84) by four shots.

The juvenile boys under-17 champ, Jaden Patterson, shot 84 (45-39) for a slim one-shot win over Paedar Nolan (44-41).

In the bantam boys under-15 competition, Brandon Falk (47-44=91) was first, followed by Marsden Tataryn (48-45=93) and Evan Harlond (51-43=94).

MEN’S LEAGUE: Steve Levy continued his hot pace and for the second consecutive week was one of the big winners in NOTL Golf Club men’s league action.

Levy topped the leaderboard with 24 points in modified Stableford scoring, followed by George Davie with 23. Ten golfers were tied with 21 points: Ken Burr, Terry  Catney, Mark  Derbyshire, Nino Ferrantelli, Tom Goodbody, Johnson Hu, Larry Mantle, Ron Newman, Dragan Racic and Glenn Young.

Derbyshire again won the low gross, shooting a sizzling 3-under 33.

Davie (#1), Earl Shore (#3) and Hu (#5) scooped $180 net skins. Gross skins ($20 each) went to Mantle (#2), Derbyshire (#4), Jim McMacken (#5) and Racic (#9).
