Sean Stuart, 2019 MCT Mid-Amateur Champion
The 2019 MCT Mid-Amateur has come to a close. It was a successful weekend of exceptional competitive golf. During the final round, just as the final group made the turn, the weather began to decline. The expected rain and thunder storms made its way to Chester Golf Club, delaying what was an intense final round. After a short delay, the golfers were able to get back on the course and fight for the win.
Sean Stuart of Ashburn Golf Club has been crowned the 2019 MCT Mid-Amateur Champion, after firing a final round of 70, for a three-day total of 211. “It was a grind at the very end, but I’m pretty relieved with the outcome as the lead kept flipping back and forth the whole day.” said Stuart when asked how he felt about todays round. This is Stuarts second Provincial Championship title of the season, after winning the 2019 Men’s Four-Ball in June with partner Trevor Chow.
In second place is Brett McKinnon of Ashburn. McKinnon carded a 73 to secure his spot on the podium. The two battled it out until the end for the top spot.
