The third annual co- sponscred by Labatt's Brew- ery, Starlite Motel and CHEC Radio opened with the 54-hole medal play Saturday morning and concluded with the fea- tured horse race Monday after- noon. Alexander was at his best Former Toronto netminder dies over the three days as he re- gained his title convincingly from defending champion Doug Silverberg of Calgary.
