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.
