Alan McLean wins first Tour event in Windsor
WINDSOR, Ont. - Alan McLean won his first Canadian Tour title on Sunday in his 132nd start, posting a two-shot victory at the Jamieson WFCU Windsor Roseland Charity Classic in Windsor, Ont.
McLean, a Scot who lives in London, Ont., shot four-under-par 66 at Roseland Golf and Curling Club to reach 10-under 270 and hold off Hugo Leon of Chile. He earned $16,000 and moved to No. 10 on the circuit’s money list.
“It’s a relief to win. I enjoy winning and I don’t think I’ve done enough of it in my career,” said McLean, 42, who’s played various tours in his career including the Canadian, European and Web.com. “Hopefully I can use this as a platform to build upon.”
The low Canadian was Michael Gligic, who shared the third round lead but shot 71. Gligic of Burlington, Ont., tied for third place with Garrett Frank of the United States.
Gligic’s finish earned him $5,400 and pushed him to second on the money list, just $5,900 behind leader Matt Hill. The top two at the end of the season earn passes into the second stage of the PGA Tour’s qualifying tournament, or Q-school.
The circuit’s next stop is the Canadian Tour Championship this week at the historic Scarboro Golf and Country Club, a private Toronto club celebrating its centenary year.
