Kevin Black finished in a 21st-place tie last week in the 2014 Titleist/FootJoy PGA of BC golf championship.

Kevin Black, manager and head pro at Seven Hills Golf & Country Club, finished in a 21st-place tie last week in the 2014 Titleist/FootJoy PGA of BC golf championship.

Black fired a 6-over-par 150 in the two-day, 36-hole tourney at Point Grey Golf & Country Club, earning a $275 payout.

The tournament was won by Gordon Scutt of Olympic View Golf Course, with a 4-under 140. He finished in a tie with Lindsay Bernakevitch of Victoria Golf Club through 36 holes but sank a 12-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to claim the trophy.

Black opened with a first-round 74 Monday to hold a share of 15th place, then followed with a 76 in the final round Tuesday.

Black will be back at work this weekend as Seven Hills hosts its premier event of the season, the annual Men’s Open Championship. The two-day, 36-hole tournament tees off Saturday at 9 a.m. and continues through Sunday.
