Lacombe’s Brady Mckinley finishes fifth overall in weather-shortened Alberta Open

Lethbridge’s Ethan Choi won the tournament

Brady Mckinlay from the Lacombe Golf and Country Club was the best among central Alberta golfers in the Alberta Open finishing fifth overall and second among amateur competitors in the tournament.

He may not have won but played a solid game shooting five-under-par just four back from the tournament champion Ethan Choi from Lethbridge at the Sundre Golf Club. Choi shot 67 and 69 to win the Championship shooting nine under par.

Due to the heavy rainfall, not everyone was able to get in nine holes today, which means the champion was crowned based on the results after Wednesday’s second round.

Mckinlay came close to claiming the lead on Wednesday appearing as high as second place overall at one point.

Other competitors in central Alberta include Scott Shouldice from Sundre Golf Club who shot two-over-par, Grant Numrich from Red Deer Golf & Country Club shot two-over-par, Dane Thorogood from Sundre Golf Club shot three-over par, Chase Broderson from Wolf Creek Golf Course shot four over par, Red Deer Golf & Country Club’s Logan Graf shot eight-over par, and Matt Bean from Sundre Golf Club also shot eight-over par.
