Callum wins Lone Wolf Classic

After shooting a 70 on Saturday to hold the clubhouse lead after day one at the Lone Wolf Classic, Dave Callum shot a 75 on Sunday to take the top spot at the tournament. Callum won by three strokes over second place finisher Mark Wallman.

“Today [Sunday] was a little tougher out there,” Callum admitted. “It was a battle. There were some tough pins and it played pretty long today. My chipping and putting saved me because I hit a few poor shots today so it was good to make a few putts at the end.”

Despite needing a few more strokes on round two, Callum said he wasn’t nervous over the final few holes noting that it serves no positive purpose to wonder what other players are doing on their round.

“You’ve just got to try and forget what everybody else is doing. You’re playing the golf course and doing the best I can. That’s all I can ask. I didn’t feel nervous at all. I had probably six putts that were dead in the heart, dead centre but they were six inches short of the hole. I didn’t quite have the speed right today or I probably would have had the same as yesterday.”

The tournament is the biggest one on the Lone Wolf calendar, and was played at over capacity. Callum added the event is typically played with 120 players but ended up doing forward with 128. Players from High Prairie, Grande Prairie, and Fort Nelson made the trip to take part.
