Black falls short in PGA tourney

Kevin Black, manager and club pro at Seven Hills Golf & Country Club, suffers an early exit from the 2013 PGA Championship of Canada.

Kevin Black, manager and club pro at Seven Hills Golf & Country Club, suffered an early exit from the 2013 PGA Championship of Canada when Graham Gunn of Ontario’s Whitesands Golf & Practice Centre scored a 2-up win in their opening-round match Monday at Magna Golf Club in Aurora, ON.

Black was seeded 51st in the field of Canada’s top 64 club pros and was bidding for an upset of the 14th-seeded Gunn, a former winner of the event when it was known as the PGA of Canada Club Championship.

Black, who scored two upset wins in the tournament a year ago before bowing out in the third round, held a one-stroke lead over Gunn after 14 holes Monday. But Black limped home with three bogeys over the final four holes while Gunn parred out the round.

The PGA Championship of Canada features six rounds of match play to whittle the field down and determine the eventual winner of the P.D. Ross Trophy, which will be presented tomorrow.
