Olympic speed skater Vincent De Haitre whiffed twice before shanking a ball into the woods during a photo-op at his golf tournament fundraiser on a soaking wet May 29 at Camelot Golf and Country Club in his hometown of Cumberland.
Roughly $25,000 was collected to support the world’s #2-ranked men’s 1,000 metres skater on his journey to the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games.
The 22-year-old reigning Ottawa Sports Awards male athlete of the year would also like to compete in the Summer Olympics one day in track cycling.
Golf, however, is out of the question.
