In a golf tournament it doesn’t matter if you win by one, or 100, just as long as you win.

Jagare Ridge in Edmonton may be a scenic golf course but its demands on accuracy and strategy, more than its photogenic face, are enough to take your breath away. As well as all the birdies you’d hoped to write down.
 
After day one of the annual PGA of Alberta’s Assistant’s Championship, only one pro out of the field of 67 that teed it up in the tourney with a prize purse of $20,000 had broken par.
