Clean sweep for Canadian teams at the 2023 John R. Williams

Simon McInnis (L) and Garrett Rank

It may have been a 1-2-3 finish for American players at the recently-held Canadian Mid-Amateur Championship. The Canadians, however, showed their strength over the weekend at the challenging Oak Hill in Rochester, New York, winning both the Mid-Am and Senior titles.

Simon McInnis and Garrett Rank — the NHL referee who will soon have to put the clubs away for the winter — took home the Mid-Am title, shooting Rounds of 67, 65, and 65 for a three-day total of 13-under 197. Rank is from Elmira, Ontario, and his partner, McInnis resides in Crystal Beach, Ontario.
