Cascade golfer helps Canadian crew finish fifth

Chilliwack's Aaron Pauls enjoyed the trip of a lifetime, representing his school and country at a golf tournament in Switzerland.

Chilliwack golfer Aaron Pauls represented the University of the Fraser Valley and Canada at the World University Golf Championships, held last week in Crans-Montana, Switzerland

Pauls played four rounds of golf on the 18-hole, par-72 Severiano Ballesteros course in the Swiss Alps, home to the Omega European Masters. His scores of 76, 73, 67, 76 left him four over par, in a seven-way tie for 40th overall.

His scorching third round score was the third best posted by any golfer in the entire tournament.

Collectively, Pauls and his Team Canada crew finished fifth

Pauls’ coach at UFV, Chris Bertram, helped Team Canada’s women’s squad to an 11th place finish.

Both were chosen for their teams in February, Pauls as one of six varsity men from across the nation, and Bertram as one of four coaches.
