Weather cuts short Alberta Men’s Am at Wolf Creek

Camrose’s Andrew Harrison wins at four-under-par

It wasn’t the way Andrew Harrison envisioned it, but he’ll take it.

The 22-year-old Camrose product was declared the winner Friday morning at the Alberta Men’s Amateur Champion at Wolf Creek in Ponoka.

The tournament came to a rain-soaked conclusion Friday after play was suspended midway through round three Thursday. Play was eventually canceled Friday because of the weather.

Harrison finished with a 36-hole score of four-under-par, the only player under par through two rounds.

“It’s not the way I pictured winning the Alberta Amateur,” said Harrison in a press release.

“I’m really proud of how I played the first two days. It’s awesome, I’ve always wanted to win this one and it’s really cool to get it done.”

Runner up Matt Bean of Canmore and Calgary’s Max Murchison will make up Team Alberta for the Willingdon Cup competition at the Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship Aug 5-8 at Glen Arbour Golf Course in Nova Scotia. Bean finished at even-par for the tournament and Murchison was one-over-par.

Lacombe’s Brady McKinlay and Ron Harder of Red Deer County finished tied for 15th and were the top Central Albertans at seven-over-par.

Chandler McDowell (Springbrook), Cole Morrison (Red Deer), and Carter Graf (Sylvan Lake) all finished tied for 22nd at eight-over-par. Chase Broderson (Lacombe) ended up tied for 32nd at nine-over-par.
