Gorge Vale pair second, Olympic View duo fourth at BC PGA event

Only a few strokes separate the winners with Greater Victoria teams

Kevin Maxwell and Matt Matheson did their best to chase down the leaders, but wound up three strokes out of top spot at the PGA of B.C. Pro-Assistant Golf Championship in Kelowna.

Maxwell, head professional at Olympic View Golf Club, and assistant pro Matheson followed up their combined score of 65 on Monday with a 62 in Tuesday’s scramble-format round. Their 127 left them in fourth spot, one shot out of a second-place tie that included the team of Jim Cook and Edd Boudreau (66-60) of Gorge Vale.

Russ Latimer and Tyrel Griffith of the host Black Mountain Golf Club won with a 124 total.
