Orléans vision-impaired golfer Kevin Frost renewed his passion for golf this summer and in the process added three more titles to his growing resume.

In July, Frost won the Western Canadian Vision Impaired Golf Championships in Calgary, Alberta, which uses the Stableford scoring system that awards points based on how well you pay each hole.

A month later he won the Ontario Vision Impaired Championship in Hamilton using the same Stableford scoring system and he placed second in the low net category.

He scored a 95 on his first round and a 93 in the second round. After factoring in his 24 handicap, his low net score came out to 140, two shots off the winner.

The provincial championship also doubled as the Canadian portion of the World
i-Cloud International Championship involving 58 vision impaired golfers from around the world.

The world championships uses a complicated system that rates the courses each golfer is playing on, as well as the individual golfer’s handicap. Frost’s winning Stableford score in the provincials was good enough to place him fifth in the world event.

Frost captured his third title last week in the Brian MacLeod Nova Scotia Open which took place in Truro, Nova Scotia. The event doubled as the Eastern Canadian Championships which gave Frost a sweep of all three regional titles.
