Olympic View Golf Club pros Kevin Maxwell

Olympic View pro golf duo take top prize

Pair wins playoff clincher at PGA of B.C. tourney at the Talking Rock Golf Course on Little Shuswap Lake

Two golf pros out of Olympic View Golf Club earned a little green by going for the green earlier this month.

The pair won the 2012 G and G/Fletcher Leisure Group PGA of B.C. Pro-Assistant Championship at the Talking Rock Golf Course on Little Shuswap Lake.

Kevin Maxwell and Matt Matheson edged out a team from Kelowna in a sudden death playoff after finishing tied through 36 holes over two days. Shooting 68 and 61 in their two rounds of best ball and scramble style golf, the duo ended the weekend tied at 129 and had to head back to the 18th tee for a Scotch-Alternate shot showdown.

“We complimented each other very well out there and made key putts when we needed them,” Maxwell said in a statement issued by the PGA of B.C.

“Kevin made a 35-foot bomb on our last hole today and hoped it was enough to be in contention,” Matheson said.

Both teams made par on the first two holes, but Kelowna got into trouble on the third with two errant tee shots that put par out of reach. Maxwell started off the Olympic View team right with a 310-yard drive down the middle and Matheson put it on the green with the second shot. From there it only took a couple of putts to take the victory.

First place came with a cheque for $2,250 for the pair.
