Rick Hallberg has won first place in the Senior Men’s Provincial Championship July 26, and Jay Mohr won first place in the Inaugural Mid- Masters Men’s Provincial Championship also held at Kenosee Lake Golf Course the same day.
Hallberg has now qualified for the Canadian team with this first place win and will be heading to the Senior Canadian Golf Tournament in New Brunswick September 3- 6. “This is now the sixth provincial team I’ve been on,” said Hallberg who also won a qualifying spot for the Canadian Mid-Master’s but won’t be able to attend due to other commitments. Mohr also qualifies to attend the Victoria, B.C. tournament in August.
“I’m not going to Victoria to the Canadian Mid- Masters because I’ve already committed to being a caddy at the CP Women Canadian Open that’s coming to Regina in August,” said Hallberg. “I think it will be a good experience.” Hallberg has already been on the Canadian team at the Mid- Masters tournament three times, and had the team he was on place second twice in his golfing career.
“It’s the top women golfers in the world that will be at the CP Women’s Canadian Open, “Hallberg said. “They don’t make the same amount of money men make on the PGA tour. A lot of them don’t have their own caddies. They need local caddies to help them out, so I volunteered.”
Hallberg was very impressed with the quality of the event where the Senior Men Provincial Championship was held this year. “Golf Kenosee did a spectacular job hosting this event. Every guy I played with couldn’t believe how nice the golf course was, they said it was by far the best place they had played all year.”
“I want to thank the ground keeper Calvin, Amy and the crew, and Brent and the pro shop, and food and beverage, for doing such a great job to get Kenosee ready for this tournament,” said Hallberg.
