Calgary Golf Pro Shoots 25 for 9 Holes

A twenty-five over nine holes. Birdie, birdie, birdie, birdie, eagle, birdie, birdie, birdie, eagle. The Alberta Open is the flagship tournament of the Alberta Golf Association, and Kureluk is an assistant pro at Cottonwood Golf and Country Club in De Winton, outside Calgary.

Kureluk followed with a 70 to win by three strokes. The tournament was shortened to 36 holes by snow. Note that the third-place finisher, Kris Wasylowich, a past champion in the Alberta Open, himself shot a 57 a few years ago. The PGA Tour record for nine holes is 26, set by Corey Pavin at
