Galloway G.C. played host to the final round of the Publinks city championship. The annual event pits the best public course players in the city against each other. Ed McDugal won last year's tournament and was in the thick of it again. He finishes 4th at plus 2 after a final round 71.
Ben Smith fired the low round of the day with a 66 and winds up tied for 2nd at 2 under par. No one could catch U of M golfer Ian Rochester.
Rochester had a birdie on 9. He made the turn at 6-under and goes on to win the 2005 Publinks Championship with a final round 68, 8 under for the tournament; lapping the field by 6 strokes.
