Local golfer low net champ in Men’s Senior Golf Tournament

Quesnel local Norm Armstrong took home the trophy for overall low net champion at Quesnel Golf Club’s annual Men’s Senior Golf Tournament on Aug. 12-13.

Robert Ahrens of Prince George, who shot 148 over the weekend, won the low gross champion accolade.

Armstrong shot 77 on Sunday and 135 overall in the tournament. He said he enjoyed himself on the course.

“On Sunday, all my putts went in. Everything went well.

“I’ve played in this tournament every year for the past 20 years. I’m 75 years old, so I’m pretty old to be shooting that good!

“It was a nice day and the people I played with were nice.”

The number was on par with last year’s attendance.
