Bucket List Experience at RBC PGA Scramble presented by The Lincoln Motor Company National Final

Participants in RBC PGA Scramble presented by The Lincoln Motor Company National Final were treated to a someday moment Friday at Cabot Cliffs.

Even blustery winds and a persistent rain couldn’t dampen the spirit of the 21 teams playing in the national final’s second round on Canada’s top-ranked golf course.

“Playing out here at Cabot Cliffs today was one of those bucket list moments,” said the team from Scarboro Golf and Country Club. “For RBC, The Lincoln Motor Company and the PGA of Canada to run this event and have us at Cabot Links for three days is just amazing and really is the trip of the lifetime.”

Taking place this week at the world-famous Cabot Links and Cabot Cliffs in Inverness, N.S., this once-in-a-lifetime national final features 21 teams—comprised of four amateurs and one PGA of Canada professional—playing in a 54-hole national championship.

The team from Collicutt Siding in Calgary echoed the sentiments of the squad from Scarboro.

“We’re just super-thankful to be here at this tremendously-run tournament,” Collicut Siding said after their second round. “This is a big deal—you get to compete in a national championship, play the two best golf courses in Canada and have Bob Weeks introduce you on the first tee is incredible.”

Canadian Golf Hall of Fame member and golf media personality Bob Weeks was on site during championship week to handle emcee duties at the opening ceremonies and as honorary starter for the first round and second rounds at Cabot Links. Canadian sports telecaster Daren Millard will also be on hand as honorary starter for the final round and as emcee for the championship's final ceremonies.

In addition to the opening ceremonies, participants in the national final are treated to two RBC dinners at the Panorama restaurant, as well as two receptions by The Lincoln Motor Company and a closing ceremonies event.

The team from B.C.’s Salmon Arm Golf Club leads the national final at 37.8-under-heading into Saturday’s final round at Cabot Links. P.E.I.’s Fox Meadow trails Salmon arm just 0.1 shots, while Whistle Bear Golf Club rounds out the top three at 37.1-under-par. Last year’s winners from Cordova Bay Golf Course in B.C., sits in fourth at -36.8 with local favourites from The Links at Brunello in fifth at 36.3-under par.
