NORTH NORWICH – What kind of comeback heroics can we expect this year at Canasawacta Country Club’s men’s member-guest tournament?
Reaching its 50th incarnation, the golden anniversary event will be hard-pressed to upstage last year’s thrilling playoff win for two-time champions Tim Mirabito and guest Kenny Stewart. Mirabito and Stewart made up four shots over the final 18 holes to force the tournament’s first playoff. On the first hole, Mirabito sunk a downhill birdie putt in front of a large throng of fans and supporters to clinch his third overall championship
While last year’s tournament victory was unique, 2006 winners Tom and Matt Ryan pulled off perhaps the greatest comeback win in the tourney’s long history making up six shots for their title.
Mirabito and Stewart are one team out a 100 that began play with a shotgun start at 8 a.m. today. A second shotgun start is slated for 1:30 p.m., said C.C.C. head professional, David Branham. “This year is pretty special, and this has to be one of the most successful member-guests in Central York,” Branham said.
