Toronto Open 2015
The tournament was played over the Victoria Day weekend at North Toronto CC in ideal weather despite the weather forecast.
The field of ten players were split into two blocks of five and both the Championship and “A” Block played a double round robin. This gave everyone eight 2 1/4 hour matches over the three days, which satisfied all the participants, as did the meals, including the traditional Sunday BBQ, catered by Mary Sutton.
Brian Cumming showed why he is the best player in Canada, going undefeated to claim the Championship. The rest of the field showed signs of winter and lack of practice. David Druiett went to the wire of his final match to win second spot.
The “A” Block was a very close finish with Patrick Little edging Bill Rowat by 2 gross points in the tie breaker. Jane Beharriell came in a solid third spot.
