FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – It was an exciting final round of the 2016 Peace Country Open, and despite a close final round match, Travis Eggers was unable to repeat as Jared Nichols took the trophy in this year’s championship flight.

Nichols bested Eggers after 16 holes on Monday to take the championship flight after 54 holes of golf. Meanwhile, Kelly Smeeth bested Linda Harvey to take the win in the Ladies Flight. Last year’s ladies champion Sheryl Lequiere lost her first round before staving off elimination to take the Ladies consolation winner spot. Ezekiel Miranda maintained a spotless record to be crowned winner of the Seniors flight, while Jim McKinnon lost his first match, but won all the others to take the runner-up spot.

82 golfers registered for this year’s tournament, one of the best showings in the past several years. Though downpours resulted in flash flooding in Fort St. John on Sunday, the course only saw the occasional period of rain, with mostly overcast skies throughout the weekend.
