Willingdon Cup Team Finalist for City of St. John's Team of the Year

image1The 2016 Willingdon Cup Championship Team has been selected as one of three finalists for the 2016 City of St. John's Molson Coors Team of the Year Award.


Provincial golf history was made in August when Newfoundland and Labrador won the Willingdon Cup Canadian amateur men’s team competition for the first time at the Royal Ottawa Golf Club.

Newfoundland’s team of Blair Bursey of Gander and Nathan Peters and Chuck Conley of St. John’s finished two strokes ahead of runner-up Ontario.


The Willingdon Cup competition was conducted during the first two rounds of the Canadian men’s amateur championship. Adding to the remarkability of the Willingdon Cup accomplishment is that Bursey, the two-time defending provincial men's champion, and Peters, whose home club is Clovelly, were both just 19.


As well, the team had to overcome the loss of its third member when the veteran, Conley, was forced to withdraw from the competition. Normally, a team's total score is achieved by using the two best daily results of the three-member team. However, with Conley unavailable, Newfoundland had to depend on only the scores of Bursey and Peters.


The other finalists for the Team of the Year include 2016 and five time Canadian Senior Men's fastpitch champions, the Galway Hitmen and 2016 Brier finalist, 2016 Rogers Grand Slam Cup and presently the top team on the 2016-2017 Tour, Team Gushue.


The Team of the Year Award along with a number of other awards will be presented at the annual City of St. John’s Molson Coors Canada 2016 Athlete of the Year Banquet that will take place on Tuesday February 7th in the Foran/Greene Room at City Hall.
