Carter Graf has some Central Alberta company atop the leaderboard at the Alberta Junior Golf Championships.

The Sylvan Lake product still leads the tournament at two-under-par after 56-holes. Hot on his heels is Lacombe’s Brady McKinlay, who fired a one-over-par 71 to move into second place all alone at even-par.

Graf, 18, stumbled in the cold and rainy conditions at Highwoods Golf and Country Club in High River, shooting a five-over-par 75 on Thursday. Still, he’s the only player in the 62 player field that is under par for the tournament.

Innisfail’s Joe Kelly is 17-over-par for the tournament, while Red Deer’s Cole Bergheim sits at 18-over. Logan Graf is also 18-over.

Graf and McKinlay will tee off at 9:10 on Friday morning, along with Nicolas-Guy Landry.
