Readings Win Parent/Child Championship
The 2021 Parent-Child Championship took place at Springbrook GC on Sunday, with a full field of teams competing in a modified alternate shot. In this team format, both players tee off, and one ball is selected and then played in alternating shots until the ball is holed. At the end of the day, the duo of Brian & Liam Reading led all scorers, shooting a score of 68 (-3) to take the title.
Despite a double bogey and bogey at the first two holes, the Readings went on to make seven birdies on their round. Their score of 68 was two better than two teams that tied with a score of 70. Past champions Peter & Chris Deroche matched Barbara Deschenes & Garrett Olson with the only other under par rounds of the tournament.
In addition to the overall championship, teams competed in flights based on the age of the younger player on the team. Peter & Andrew Klein won the 15-18 flight with a score of 75. Jeffrey & Drew Mertzel claimed the 14 and under flight with a score of 73.
