Austin Ryan tees off to start the two-day event at Saugeen Golf Club
Austin Ryan, who played his junior golf in the Owen Sound area, has won the Toronto Players Tour event at Saugeen Golf Club.
The Kitchener resident shot 67 (-5) today and 69 yesterday and won in a 5-hole playoff with Mike Gonko, who shot 67-69 over the two-day event.
Ryan birdied the 5th playoff hole, Sunrise #2, to get the win, which was worth $4,000.
Ryan turned pro after a stellar collegiate career with Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks golf team.
Last year he fired 63 at the Legacy Ridge Pro-Am to set a new course record at the Owen Sound-area club.
