Brandon’s Travis Fifi topped the Westman competitors at a qualifying event for the Manitoba men’s amateur golf championship on Saturday at the Portage Golf Club.
The Shilo Country Club member shot a round of 2-over 72 to finish second in the qualifier behind Dominic Payne of Winnipeg’s Pine Ridge Golf Club, who carded an even-par 70.
The round was good enough to land Fifi a spot in the Manitoba men’s amateur, set for July 21-24 at the Links and Quarry Oaks and Niakwa clubs.
Others who qualified through Saturday’s event included Zach Wytinck of Glenboro, who fired a 75, Shilo members Jeremy Marvin (76) and Ross Sheard (78) from Brandon, Joel Baron of Carberry (79) and Glen Ford of Glenboro (81).
