Chilliwack golfer makes mark at Vancouver Golf Tour major

Matt Gudmundson finished fourth at the VGT Player’s Championship at the Chilliwack Golf Club.

Chilliwack’s Matt Gudmundson rode home course advantage to a fourth place finish at last week’s Vancouver Golf Tour Player’s Championship.

The two-round tourney was played Thursday and Friday at the Chilliwack Golf Club, with Gudmundson carding a six-under-par 138.

The local was within four shots of leader Seann Harlingten after a near flawless opening round, carding a six-under 66 that included a half-dozen birdies. But Gudmundson lost ground early in round two with a bogey on the third hole and a double-bogey on four, and finished with an even-par 72.

Gudmundson finished nine strokes behind Harlingten.

Cheam Mountain instructor Kevin Stinson tied for eighth with a three-under-par 141.

Cody Stewart (Chilliwack Golf Club) tied for top spot in the amateur bracket, firing a three-over-par 147 that left him even with Swan-e-set’s Craig Titterington.

Jacob Lucki (Sandpiper) and David Yaromich (Chilliwack) finished inside the top 10.
