Kevin Black, manager and club pro for Seven Hills Golf and Country Club, finished in a 10th-place tie last week in the PGA of BC Club Professional Championship.

Black earned a $353 share of the prize money in the two-day, 36-hole tournament at North Vancouver’s Seymour Golf & Country Club.

He opened with a one-over-par 73 Sept. 30 to sit in fourth position, but slid to a 78 on Oct. 1 to finish with a 7-over 151.

The tourney was won by Doug Morgan of The Redwoods Golf Course, who was the only finisher under par at 3-under 141. He finished three strokes ahead of Bill Kelly of Glacier Greens and Kevin Maxwell of Olympic View, who tied for second.

Brian McDonald of Fairview Mountain Golf Club had the unusual distinction of posting the best and worst rounds of the tournament. After carding an 83 to bring up the rear of the 22-golfer field on opening day, McDonald followed with a 68 to join Black and four others at 151 for the championship.
