Sun Scramble will feature return appearance from sports guys Brennan and Baines
By Don Brennan, Ottawa Sun

It’s easy to understand how anxious the Senators are to get started on the new season after missing the playoffs last April, just like it was to appreciate how eager the Redblacks were to begin their pursuit of a Grey Cup after coming so close to winning one in November.

Especially if you’re a golfer determined to redeem yourself at the Ottawa Sun Scramble.

Mark these words — this is the year Tim Baines and yours truly win the Absolute Comedy C Division of the two-player city championship. Our time is now, because it’s running out. No joke. Tim’s getting old. Read More>>>

Father/son duo capture Sun Scramble glory
By Chris Hofley, Ottawa Sun

There were few dry eyes on the 18th green at Eagle Creek Golf Club on Sunday afternoon as Allen McGee and his 14-year-old son Hunter did something even they didn't expect.

With Hunter, who has played with his dad in the annual Ottawa Sun Scramble since he was 12, tapping in a short putt on the final hole, the father-son duo captured the Flagstick Open Championship.

With Hunter trying unsuccessfully to hold back tears as the reality of the win sunk in, his dad wrapped his arms around him, lifting the teenager off his feet in celebration.

After hugs from his family -- including mom Tarra Findlay, sister Zoe and grandma Carole waiting near the 18th green, Hunter struggled to put the win into words, calling the win -- on the back of a 20-under final round -- "one of the best experiences of my life." Read More>>>

Drink it up, boys!
They may have had a late night, but B division champs showed no worse for wear in Sun Scramble victorys

By Don Brennan, Ottawa Sun

ROCKLAND - So the secret to winning a championship on a Saturday is having a nice quiet Friday night and getting lots of sleep, right?

Well, maybe not always.

“That was our plan,” said Jordan MacWilliam, who is better known as “JMoney” on the Slammer Tour. “But there’s no fun in that. We were excited.

“We were pretty comfortable where we were so we ended up going to bed around 3:30 or 4 a.m. That might be the trick next year. No sleep is good.”

An unrested MacWilliam and Wes “Danger” Ranger were money at Outaouais, firing a 5-under 67 to win the GOLFTEC B division at the Ottawa Sun Scramble. Their two round total of 9-under gave them a four shot victory over three teams at 5-under: Rocco Sala and Pat Barone, Bill Young and Ian White, and Mike Thibault and John Tattersall.

“It feels unreal,” MacWilliam said of claiming the title. “We’ve been playing in the Scramble for five years now and we came second in the ‘C’ two years ago, and it feels good to jump up to the B and finally pull it out. We missed the cut last year so this is pretty sweet.” Read More>>>

Scramble organizers shine on course
By Don Brennan, Ottawa Sun

Every day this week, Andy Rajhathy and Mitch Dale have arrived at a different golf course at 5 a.m. and left it at 9 p.m. — and each day they’ve been run off their feet.

Somehow, they were able to shake the fatigue of 16-hour work days long enough to grab a share of the lead in the first round of the Flagstick Open at the Ottawa Sun Scramble.

The teams of Rajhathy/Dale and the Hunt Club’s Sebastien Deguire and Michael Reame fired 9-under 63s at GreyHawk on Friday, one better than Pembroke’s Jason Robertson and Luke Mohns, Glen Mar/ClubEG’s Allen McGee and Hunter McGee and Club Link’s Terry O’Sullivan and Carter Trevisani.

Rajhathy, a pro, has missed the cut the last three years, which is the same length of time he’s been Sun Scramble tournament director. Dale is a “lead marshall” who has countless other duties on his to-do list.

They expect to find another boost of energy for Championship Sunday at Eagle Creek. Read More.

Leading ladies hit some juicy shots
By Don Brennan, Ottawa Sun

KEMPTVILLE - Lucy "Juice" Leblanc is on the front running team of the Ladies B Division at the Ottawa Sun Scramble with great assistance from both her partners -- the one at the course and the one in her life.

Leblanc, who teamed with Shari "Dr. Pepper" Johnson for a 5-under 67 at eQuinelle Thursday, is dating Allen McGee. McGee won the Open division of the Sun Scramble six times with Kyle Koski (2005-2010) and is still generally recognized as the top golfer in the region.

"Absolutely, Al's been amazing for me," said Leblanc, referring, in this instance, to her golf. "He's helped me a lot with my short game. So anywhere 100 yards in has been pretty much target golf. I rarely miss.

"But it's all because of Al. I'm a good listener, he's a great teacher."

Their teamwork at the beautiful Kemptville sprawl had them in command at the turn. Read More>>>

Leaders feeling the karma
By Don Brennan, Ottawa Sun

GATINEAU - Ian White’s skills as a life coach might even be more important as his talents as a “bomber” at the Ottawa Sun Scramble.

He keeps his partner “in the moment” when he’s not putting them both in prime position with drives that visit the 300-yard neighbourhood.

“Golf,” the great Jack Nicklaus purportedly once stated, “is 80% mental, 10% ability and 10% luck.”

White and Bill Young — known respectively on the Slammer Tour as “Number 7” (because he’s a Leafs fan and that’s the jersey Ian White the defenceman wore for Toronto) and “Newfie” — were 100% on their game Wednesday at Le Sorcier. They fired a 5-under 66 to grab a share of the first round lead in the GOLFTEC B division.

Also posting 66s were Rick Theberge and Darren Shultz, and John Tattersall and Mike Thibault, while four other teams were 67 and five more at 68. Read More>>>

'Impressive' scores at Dragonfly
By Tim Baines, Ottawa Sun

RENFREW - Nick Catizzone and Derek Bayford sit alone atop the leaderboard after Round 1 of Ottawa Sun Scramble Absolute Comedy C Division play, but they're also in no position to get comfortable.

Catizzone and Bayford fired a 3-under 69 at Dragonfly Golf Links Tuesday, one shot better than Joshua Moore and Matt Moore, and Mike Cerilli and Franco Crupi. Three other teams came in at 1-under while four were at even par.

Four of five teams at the plus-1 cutline survived a playoff to advance to Championship Saturday at Outaouais.

"That's pretty impressive," Dragonfly general manager Bill Rainboth said of the fact 15 of 56 teams scored 73 or better. "The golf course does have some generous hitting areas, but it also has some holes where it's not hard to put up a bad number. So yeah, I'm nicely surprised the scores are as good as they are."

Turner glad to be back on course
By Tim Baines, Ottawa Sun

As Rick Turner, who's known as Gator in Slammer Tour circles, tumbled toward the walkway of his Kanata home, slamming hard onto stone steps while clinging to a ladder, he remembers thinking, 'Oh no, oh no, oh no."

It was Feb. 23, a cold winter day and, after finishing painting the living room, Turner was looking to remove some snow from the roof.

Wanting to move the ladder closer to the wall, he took a step down, then crashed to the ground. Neighbours rushed over.

"I couldn't get to my feet on my own," said the 60-year-old Turner, who's retired from the federal government. "There was a lot of pain, but I could move both my legs and my arms. The stupid thing is I got my neigbhours to help me up. If it had been something with my spine, I could have been worse off, a lot worse off. Read More>>>

Scramble lives up to its name on Day 1
By Bruce Garrioch, Ottawa Sun

The Ottawa Sun Scramble, fast-becoming a time-honoured tradition on the local golf calendar, kicked off Monday at 7:30 a.m when the first group of the Flashpoint Photo Booth 'D' Division hit the No. 1 tee at beautiful Manderley on the Green which is located a stone's throw from Manotick.

No, 'D' doesn't stand for duffers, but there were a few among the 36 teams that participated. However, in the end it was ClubEG members Costa Glikofridas and Kevin Huynh who held the clubhouse lead at plus-1 with plenty of drama left for championship Saturday at the lovely Outaouais Golf Club in Rockland.

While Glikofridas and Huynh hold a two-stroke lead over Dave Kurs and Rob Sibbald at plus-3, the 10 teams that made the cut at plus-6 are within five strokes of the lead. That means it's anybody's ballgame with plenty on the line and last year it was a two-day total plus-1 that won the coveted trophy. Read More >>>

Golfers tee up for Scramble
By Tim Baines, Ottawa Sun

Allen McGee is hoping for a magical father-son moment at the Ottawa Sun Scramble Flagstick Open.

Brenda Pilon and Lise Jubinville are hoping to create some of the same magic that's won them six ladies Open championships.

The Ottawa Sun Scramble is about hopes and dreams and it's about inclusiveness -- even if you shoot 100, you can compete for a city title.

When Flashpoint Photobooth D competitors Marc Pilon, Marc Sabourin, Ted Weagle and Bill Adair tee off early Monday morning at Manderley on the Green, the week-long Ottawa Sun Scramble, with more than 1,000 competitors, will be on and there will be plenty of golfers with high hopes. Read more>>>

For love of the game
Organizers say it takes a lot of work to run Sun Scramble, but no matter what, it’s always worth it

By Tim Baines, Ottawa Sun

It's really amazing what's happened since the Ottawa Sun Scramble began back in 2005.

Really, it became reality because of a vision. And builders like the Ottawa Sun's Rick Gibbons and Mike Therien, along with Karl Parks, Jim Backs and former Eagle Creek owner Andre Lacasse had a large hand in developing a framework and a concept that would grow and grow and grow.

“It requires a lot of time and energy, but we all love doing it,” said Ottawa Sun Scramble tournament director Andy Rajhathy. “The excitement is certainly there. Weather is always a scare, but we've been pretty lucky in the past.”. Read more>>>

They keep getting better
By Tim Baines, Ottawa Sun

"If you ain't first, you're last." -- Reese Bobby, Talladega Nights

Pretty harsh, eh? In the Olympics, they award silver medals for finishing second and bronze for third. They're all nice and shiny and probably look great hanging somewhere in a place of prominence. But we put so much emphasis on finishing first in sports, in life, in everything we do.

Josh Roesler and Andre Sauve have a pretty good handle on what it's like to place second. During the past two years of the annual Ottawa Sun Scramble, the dynamic duo has managed to pull defeat out of the jaws of victory both times. A break here, a break there and a championship was there for the taking. More.

July qualifier set for Hautes Plaines

We are excited to announce that our “early” qualifier has been finalized and competitors who do not currently hold a direct entry spot can try to qualify for any main event by competing on Monday, July 20th at Clublink’s Hautes Plaines Golf Club.

Our original itinerary indicated this event would be held on Friday, July 17th but this has indeed changed to the following Monday July 20th. If you are currently registered for this event, please confirm the time change is okay. 

Any team who is currently registered for a qualifier may change qualifiers (we have four options to choose from) anytime before August 1st, 2015. We will also call to confirm with current participants of this qualifier to ensure the date/time change is acceptable for registered teams.

Hautes Plaines is only 10 minutes from downtown Ottawa and has an exciting yet challenging layout; perfect for a competitive scramble format. Tee times will run from 7:30am to 11am and we look forward to this new course being part of the largest golf event in the Ottawa-Gatineau region.
