Ken Griffith one back heading into final round at Alberta Senior Men’s Championships

The course fought back in round two of the Alberta Senior Men’s Championship.

Only one player finished under par on Wednesday and no player is in red numbers after 36 holes in Edmonton at the Derrick.

Frank Van Dornick of Camrose was the low man on the day, he shot a two-under-par 68 to move into a three-way tie for fourth place.

Red Deer’s Ken Griffith also remains in contention. He fired a four-over 74 Wednesday and sits tied for second with Brian Laubman at plus-two after 36 holes. They are chasing Peter Major of Calgary, who is one-over heading into the third and final round Thursday.

Olds native Keith Newton is another Central Albertan with a shot at the title, he sits at four-over for the tournament, three strokes back of first.

Fellow Olds product Mark Schultz is 11-over and Red Deer’s Len Powell is tied for 23 at 12-over.

Merv Dusyk (Red Deer), Tom McKinlay Sr. (Lacombe) and Grant Lee (Red Deer) all also made the cut and will play in the final round Thursday.
