Robertson leads locals at Senior Men’s Championship

Three Chilliwack natives competed in the 2013 BC Senior Men's Championship, held at Eagle Point Golf Resort in Kamloops.

Chilliwack’s T. Craig Robertson was the top local at the 2013 BC Senior Men’s Championship, tying for 35th overall.

The tournament was played this week at Eaglepoint Golf Resort in Kamloops.

Robertson carded a three-round 230 to finish 20 shots off the pace set by tourney winner Doug Roxburgh, a Vancouver native representing the Marine Drive Golf Club.

Robertson fired a six-over-par 78 in Monday’s round one. The second round was his best as he bogied four holes and birdied one en-route to a three-over-par 75.

He slipped slightly in Wednesday’s final round, carding a 77.

Chilliwack’s Daniel Caton went the distance as well, tying for 50th overall with a three-round 235. Caton fired 81, 77 and 77 over the three days.

A third Chilliwackian, Shawn Montgomery, missed the cut after the second round, finishing with scores of 88 and 86.
