The UCC golf team was swallowed up by heat and humidity in the fourth and final tune-up event of the 2017 CISAA golf tour. This week’s event was held at Shanty Bay Golf Club in Barrie, Ontario, hosted by The Bishop Strachan School. The last 24 hours saw temperatures shoot up the thermometer to nearly 30 degrees, which bucked the trend of cold and wet conditions to date this season. Although the boys in blue did not have their best collective scores on the course this week they still earned outstanding team results. Conditions being equal for all participants, many golfers were vocal of their struggles to perform in the muggy weather. The boys are keen to return to form next week, as both the seniors and juniors have qualified for the CISAA Championship and both have legitimate chances at their respective titles.
