Gord Burns Wins Breenie Cup, Clinching Title of PGA of Ontario Player of the Year
Gord Burns had the lead in the Chase for the Breenie Cup going into the 2019 Player of the Year Championship this week. His impressive T3 finish on Tuesday was the cherry on top, enough to secure his title as the 2019 Breenie Cup Winner and PGA of Ontario’s Player of the Year.
Victor Ciesielski’s 9th place finish and Danny King’s T5 finish were good enough to win their points races and land them on top of their respective divisions, CFM/Apprentice Professional Player of the Year and Senior Player of the Year.
Blair Breen, son of the late Bob Breen, joined us at Grand Niagara Golf Club on behalf of the Chase for the Breenie Cup presented by Triple Bogey Brewing Company to congratulate Gord Burns on his successful year and to present him as the Breenie Cup Winner.
“It is always an honour presenting the Breenie Cup to great players in Ontario.”, said Breen. “Gord Burns played consistently well throughout the year and didn’t score a single round over par all tournament season. That’s a fantastic accomplishment and I’m pleased to announce him as the Player of the Year Series Winner and recipient of the Breenie Cup. Well done, Gord.”
Gord was equally honoured to receive the trophy from Blair, saying he knew Bob Breen well and enjoyed playing with him years ago.

13 year old Kelly Zhao has been working with Gord Burns since the age of 6. Her efforts and talent won her a provincial championship in the U17 age division with a 5 shot victory and 1 under par 3 day total. Look for Kelly to keep adding to her already impressive resume this summer!!
16 year old Noah Campbell started with Gord Burns at the age of 12 as a 25 handicap and is now currently a plus 1. 2019 saw Noah come in the top 10 in both the U17 and U19 provincial championships. As well, he was the youngest player to make the cut in the Ontario Open ( a professional event) and finished 42 nd place. Look for more great tournament play this season!!
