Clubhouse etiquette important, too

  • Print

IT was instructional in the last week about just the type of character Mike Weir has when he engaged in some friendly verbal jousting with old Canadian Tour comrade Dave McMillan, now the head pro at Transcona.

Prior to his appearance in Winnipeg earlier this week, Weir was reminiscing about his old CanTour days and was quoted about how he recalled having a few too many beverages with McMillan.

McMillan, given the chance to return fire at a reception with Weir the other night, smiled broadly and declined. "I could, but his reputation is worth a lot more than mine," McMillan said.

There's little doubt the original needling was a sign of respect from Weir and by holding back on any pre-fame war stories he may have, McMillan illustrated the respect and regard for Weir.

Future star in field

Golf Canada and CN on Tuesday announced another stellar addition to the field for the CN Canadian Women's Open in Augusta at St. Charles Country Club. World No. 2 amateur Jennifer Song has been given an exemption to the LPGA event.

Song, 20, tied for fifth at last month's NCAA championship and won both the U.S. Women's Amateur and the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links last year.

Dean of the green

Last week's Manitoba PGA event, the Ping June Classic at Bel Acres, was just the kind of tournament to get the competitive juices flowing on the local pro circuit.

No surprise in that Dean North of Carman was atop the standings, firing a 2-under 70 to take the event.

But the six-way tie for second, all at 71, ought to ignite the idea that it's anybody's trophy any day in 2010. Assiniboine's Glen Mills, St. Charles' Jared Ladobruk, Pine Ridge's Jason Ludke, Carman's Scott Borsa, Quarry Oaks' Dave Lavallee and St. Vital Golf Centre's Gavin March all shared the runner-up spot.
