Moar, Gobin make top five; Leslie, Kaminsky in top 15

The last were not first, but landing in the top five is nothing to sniff at.

Portage la Prairie’s Daniel Moar placed third at the 33-player Manitoba Blue Cross provincial junior men’s rural golf championship at the Portage Golf Club on Tuesday, while clubmate Brodie Gobin of St. Claude was fourth.

The two matched first-round leader Patrick Law from Glenboro by finishing at 8-over 148 for the two-day tournament, five strokes behind event winner Myles Sullivan of Portage and Teulon Golf Club runner-up Aaron Cockerill of Stony Mountain. But Moar was given third place on the strength of being the last one to birdie a hole, which he did on the par-4 16th, while Gobin was awarded fourth and Law fifth.

Since lots of people will hit the links, I have decided to take up the game again. After all, I need to learn some new and clever curse words.

Here are some interesting tidbits for you.

* Every year golfers use about 800-million golf balls and $630 million is spent annually on them in the U.S. alone.

* Way back in 1457, golf was banned in England because it was considered a distraction from the serious pursuit of archery.

* 50% of adult men have played golf while intoxicated. (But really is there any other way to play?)

Speaking of golf, thanks to Jim Prentice and Steven Ames, who just raised over $200K for children’s charities.
