Any complaints?

Constructive criticism, even?

Victoria’s Jim Rutledge is not your guy.

“(Tournament officials) asked a lot of people about room for improvement, but I think they’ve come out on top right away,” said Rutledge, one of three Canucks in the 81-man field for the inaugural Shaw Charity Classic at Canyon Meadows Golf & Country Club. “They’ve done a very, very good job all around. I only look forward to next year.”

Typical Canadian, right? Just being polite?

Maybe so, but Rutledge certainly wasn’t the only Champions Tour regular raving about the first instalment of the Shaw Charity Classic, an event that will be a fixture on the summer schedule in the Stampede City for at least four more years.
