Adam Cornelson(Brad Ziemer/British Columbia Golf) — A bogey-bogey finish proved costly for Langley’s Adam Cornelson, who lost in a three-man playoff at the Mackenzie Tour-PGA Tour Canada stop in Ottawa.

Cornelson looked to be in control late in what was a soggy final round of the $175,000 National Capital Open, but wayward drives on the 17th and 18th holes cost him. Cornelson ended up in a three-man playoff with Brock Mackenzie of Coos Bay, Ore., and Samuel Del Val of Spain. All three players finished the 72-hole event at 15-under par.

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Brock Mackenzie won the National Capital Open in the longest playoff in the Mackenzie Tour’s PGA Tour Canada-era, beating Spain’s Samuel Del Val with a birdie on the seventh extra hole at rainy and windy Hylands Golf Club.

Mackenzie won with a 12-foot putt on the par-3 third — 7 hours, 44 minutes after he teed off.

alt(Brian Decker/PGA TOUR Charities) — When the inaugural GolfBC Championship was announced as part of the Mackenzie Tour - PGA TOUR Canada schedule in February, tournament organizers had just over four months remaining until the event kicked off - a short timeline for any tournament, let alone a brand new event.

For Andy Hedley, V.P Golf Operations for GolfBC Group, the event’s title sponsor, the quickly-approaching date meant the tournament needed a way to rally support in the Kelowna, B.C. community in lieu of a year’s worth of build-up and anticipation.
