CALGARY (CP) – The summer season has been soft and sweet for Moe Norman, the golfer from Gilford, Ont,

Norman put together a closing – round 67 Saturday to win the Canadian Professional Golfer Association championship with a 54- hole total of 204, nine under par.

Norman, a native of Kitchener, put together a closing’s eight under par which set a CPGA record in 1963,

Norman picked up $2,000 and the Seagram Shield for his efforts, running his winnings this year to $13,360, all of it in Canada. He also will receive an expenses-paid trip to the Mexican, Caracas and Puerto Rico opens in November.

Some time ago Norman had to turn professional after it was learned he sold his amateur prizes. He no longer can play on the United States professional tour because he hasn’t attended the Pro Golfer Association school and hasn’t been able to find anyone to sponsor him for it.

Only eight players completed the 54 boles in par or better. Among them were George Knudson and Al Balding, both of Toronto, and both former CPGA champions. They tied with Homenuik for fifth place.
