The team of Mike Gingrich and Jamie pool landed third overall by shooting a score of six-under 137.
Pat Morin and Don Morin, who posted a five-under 138, came fourth.
The 2014 Ottawa Sun Scramble City Championship Week is set for Aug. 18-24.
Players who made the cut in their respective divisions get priority registration as of March 1.
The Ottawa Sun Scramble was launched in 2005 with Open and Senior tournaments at Eagle Creek Golf Club.
Today, the city’s largest golf event with more than 800 players offers 10 two-round partner divisions plus the Regimbal Media Challenge and three qualifying events.
Conducted by local golf promotion company Executive Golf (executivegolf.ca), the tournament is a scramble format where both players take a shot and the better of the two is used.
“The tournament committee would like to congratulate all of the 2013 champions and participants, and to extend a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to all of the wonderful sponsors, courses and volunteers who make this event possible,” said Andy Rajhathy, vice-president of EG.
