Rain plagues Mid-Amateur

The rain hasn’t washed away Craig Doell’s game at the Canadian Mid-Amateur Championship at the Cooke Municipal Golf Course on Wednesday.

PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. — The rain hasn’t washed away Craig Doell’s game at the Canadian Mid-Amateur Championship at the Cooke Municipal Golf Course on Wednesday.

While some golfers had yet to start their second round, the Victoria native has 36 holes under his belt and a four-stroke lead at 8-under (67-65).

The closest golfer to Doell was first-round leader Justin Fluit of Toronto who through four holes on his second round was sitting at 4-under.

Rain pushed most of Tuesday’s first round to Wednesday.

Frank Van Dorrick of Camrose was the closest Central Albertan after shooting a 2-over 72 on his opening round, he is tied for 13th.

Tom McKinlay, Jr., of Lacombe sits at 4-over (71-73) through two rounds and in a tie for 19th.

Meanwhile, both of Red Deer’s entrants have struggled. Tom Skinner was sitting at 17-over (79-78) while Kevin Campbell is at 25-over (88-77).

Ontario won the R. Bruce Forbes Inter-provincial team title Wednesday, shooting 9-over as a group while Alberta struggled to an eighth-place finish at 27-over par.
