Players Cup gets underway

  • Print

WINNIPEG — With the first swing of the day from Garrett Frank of Youngstown, Ohio, the 2012 Players Cup got underway at Pine Ridge Golf Club this morning.

The field of 156 players, including 10 Manitobans, is competing in the fifth Canadian Tour event of the season.

Tour officials have been watching weather systems intently this morning, including the clouds that dumped some rain on the city, but play continues.

The championship is 72 holes and the winner will be declared after Sunday’s final round.

A good omen for this year’s winner — the three latest champions are all elsewhere this week, playing at a higher level.

Defending champ Tom Hoge of Fargo is a member of the Web.com Tour this season, as is 2010 champ Aaron Goldberg.

The 2009 Players Cup champion Graham DeLaet of Weyburn, Sask., is a member of the PGA Tour this season.

Tickets for the tournament are available at the Pine Ridge gate or online. Parking is available next to the course. Just follow the signs from Garven Road.
