Summerland’s Filek finishes fifth in senior golf championship

Len Filek dropped three spots to finish fifth in the B.C. Golf Super Senior championship

Summerland’s Len Filek finished fifth in the British Columbia Golf Senior and Super Senior Championship at Swan-e-Set Bay Resort in Pitt Meadows Thursday.

Filek, who started the day tied for second, was five over par shooting a round of 77. He finished three strokes back of winner John Gallacher of Burnaby, who shot two over par. Gallacher last won the championship eight years ago.

 

“It’s a great feeling to win this again,” said Gallacher, who carded a final round (+2) 74 to finish at even par 216 for the tournament. “It’s great to be in contention and then to win it, it means I was consistent and it’s good to be consistent.”

Penticton’s Dean Bates of the Penticton Golf and Country Club finished tied for 36th after shooting eight over par, 80 for a total of 238 over three rounds.
