Andrew Reid Wins The 2018 Cooke Insurance Amateur Championship |
After a tough front nine Andrew Reid got hot when it mattered most and birdied the last four holes to win The Cooke Insurance PEI Amateur Championship at Green Gables Golf Club. The Cole Harbour Nova Scotia resident posted rounds of 71 – 76 to beat 2nd place finisher John Walsh by four shots. The event was changed to 36 holes (for all male competitors) after a rain storm mixed with lightning forced the organizers to cancel the 1st round.
