The Tim Horton’s Athlete of the Month is golfer and Peace River resident Ryley Gacek.
Ryley is based out of the Mighty Peace Golf Club, and has competed in multiple tournaments recently.
He finished tied for second at the Alberta Men’s Amateur North Qualifier at the Grande Prairie Golf and Country Club at the beginning of April. At the Tournament, Ryley shot a four over 76, where he birdied the par 5 16th hole. Gacek finished four strokes behind the leader.
Ryley then moved onto the Alberta Open at the Trestle Creek Golf Club in Entwhistle, where he made the cut. He impressed in his final round of the tournament where he birdied both hole number 5 and hole 15, on his way to a round of 75.
At the Alberta Men’s Amateur Championship, Gacek also made the cut, shooting a 4 over 75 in the second round, a round where he did not bogey a hole on the back nine.
He is also aiming to play in some Mackenzie tour qualifiers, hoping to make the field.
Congratulations Ryley, and best of luck moving forward!
