Nesbitt on course

Drew Nesbitt may have fell just short of the goal he set at his first Canadian Open this past weekend, but the experience has only reinforced the belief he has in his game.

Golf Ontario/Submitted Orillia’s John Murphy displays the trophy he won after earning the Investors Group Ontario Senior Men’s Championship at the Cedar Brae Golf Club in Scarborough. With the win against the province’s top golfers aged 55 and older, Murphy has earned the right to go for a national title at the Canadian Senior Men’s Championship in September.

Fair way to end tournament

In a dramatic final round that featured multiple lead changes, Orillia's John Murphy took advantage of a rare miscue by his opponent to pull off an improbable win at the Investors Group Ontario Senior Men's Championship last week, becoming the province's top golfer over the age of 55.
