Walkerton’s Blake Mackey has qualified for the Ontario Men’s Amateur Championship.

He fired a 74 (+3) at Firerock Golf Club in Komoka to earn one of 17 spots available at the qualifier. The Men’s Am will be held July 11-18 at OslerBrook Golf & Country Club near Collingwood.

Earlier this month he joined Fanshawe Falcon teammate Bradley Byers and finished tied for 14th in the Ontario Better-Ball Championship.

Mackey plans to play a number of competitive events this summer in preparation for his final year at Fanshawe where he will once again be a member of the golf team.

He finished 4th in the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) Championship last season and helped his team win a silver medal.
