Former Husky golfer takes title at Canadian Tour event

Updated: August 5, 2012

Chris Killmer pared the fourth playoff hole at the Canadian Tour Players Cup championship while Vince Covello bogeyed the hole giving the former Husky his first Canadian Tour victory.

Both Killmer (Bellingham HS/Bellingham, Wash.) and Covello entered the final round as co-leaders, four shots clear of the field. They ended regulation at 15-under 269 after each fired a 2-under 69 in the final round at Pine Ridge Golf Club in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Killmer, a UW letter winner in 2007 and 2009-10, used an eagle on No. 12 to carry his score on the back nine and keep him in the hunt with Covello. Covello birdied four of the last seven holes to keep the pressure on Killmer.
