NANAIMO -- Kevin Carrigan is apparently a quick study. Of course, he had a very knowledgeable instructor. A couple weeks ago, Carrigan headed up Island from his Victoria home to play a couple of rounds at Nanaimo Golf Club, the site of this week’s B.C. Mid-Amateur & Mid-Master Championships.
He asked Sandy Harper, the accomplished longtime Nanaimo member, to play with him. “Any time you can get a look at a golf course before you come out it is invaluable, right, and needless to say there’s not a guy out here who knows more about this place than Sandy does,” Carrigan said after shooting a four-under 68 to grab a five-shot lead after the first round of the Mid-Amateur.
