Fanshawe student wins silver medal at golf championship
On October 7, Booth played a tremendous game of golf at the OCAA championships hosted by Niagara College at Lochness Links in Welland, Ontario. Despite the poor weather conditions on the second day, Booth suggested to other golf athletes they should “always be prepared no matter what the weather may be like.”
Having entered the day with a two-shot lead after nearing an all-time OCAA record 67 on Tuesday, Booth commented on feeling “good” about his performance and admitted “it was a privilege to do this for (Fanshawe).”
Unfortunately Booth shot an 80 in the final round and lost the gold medal to Mike Zizek of Humber College who shot a 75 in the final round. Despite finishing second Booth is proud of his accomplishment in receiving the silver medal having never played that course before.
