Fonthill, Ont. – What started out as just an opportunity to have fun with a couple friends turned into a big win at the inaugural Hyundai PGA Scramble for the team from Angus Glen.
The squad—which featured Patrick O’Leary, Dan Mesley, Mike Asselin, David Fotheringham and PGA of Canada professional Terry Kim—pulled out the big victory Saturday at Lookout Point Country Club in Fonthill, Ont., besting the home course favourites by the slimmest of margins.
“We just had fun out there and that has been our motto since the very start,” the Angus Glen team said. “But in the end, as just a bunch of amateurs, it feels really cool to be crowned as national championship winners.”
Angus Glen’s two-day net score of 108.2 was a mere 0.2 shots better than Lookout Point who finished at 108.4. The team from Midland Golf & Country Club rounded out the top three with a score of 109.2.

The 25 teams participating at Lookout Point—which were comprised of four amateurs and a PGA of Canada Professional—made it through local and regional qualifying events before teeing it up this week in the national championship final.
The winning team was officially crowned at the closing ceremonies Saturday evening at the Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls.
“It’s been just an amazing week,” the Angus Glen team said. “From our amazing accommodations in Niagara Falls to the way everyone has looked after us here at Lookout Point, it’s really been a dream experience.”

Spittle was on hand Friday morning to hit the national final’s ceremonial tee shot.
