Mohawk men runners-up at OCAA Division 2 Golf Championship

The Mohawk men finished runners-up in the Division Two Championship of the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association Golf Championships in Cornwall on Wednesday (Oct. 5).

After two rounds of play at the Cornwall Golf and Country Club, the field of 15 colleges was split into two divisions and Mohawk finished the event, hosted by St. Lawrence College, with a 54 hole total of 983, just one shot behind Peterborough Fleming.

Curtis Henshaw was the top shooter for Mohawk, finishing alone in 36th place, at +23, following an eight-over par 80 in the final round. Michael Lyall had his second straight sub-80 score. His 79 left him at +27 and tied for 40th place. Jair Saienz shot 84 on Wednesday and wound up in 43rd place at +29.

Mark Hoffman of Humber successfully defended his OCAA title when he fired a four under par 68 to win the tournament at even par, 216. That was one shot ahead of teammate Adrian Cord, who captured his second straight silver medal. David Lang of Durham finished third, five strokes off the pace.

Humber easily won the men’s team title.

In women’s play, Mohawk’s lone entrant, Heather Brouwer, had her best round of the championship in the final round, with a 116 total and wound up 10th at 368.

Durham’s Tiffany Albath won the women’s individual crown, three shots ahead of teammate Kayleigh Kraemer. Last year Kraemer won and Albath was second. Both players are from Andernach Germany and came to Canada to attend Durham’s professional golf management programme.

Not surprisingly, the women’s team championship was captured by Durham.
