Festival grabs share of the lead on cut day at the senior mens
A thirty-minute weather delay due to early morning lightning pushed tee times back at the Senior Mens Championship today. Once the players got on course they had a singular focus as each had their eyes on making the thirty-six hole cut at days end.
John Festival of the Glencoe Golf & Country Club challenged Brian Laubman for the lead shooting a two under par score of 70 that featured two birdies. His bogey free round was impressive on day two as he was the only player to shoot under par.
Laubman shot 75 today leaving himself and Festival tied for the top spot going into the final round of the championship.
Only one stroke behind the leaders after the first two rounds, John Russell and Allan Ross will have their eyes on the prize gunning for the coveted top spot on championship Friday.
A total of 63 players made the cut for the final round at 19 over par or better.
With interprovincial team placement spots on the line tomorrow at Turner Valley Golf Club it will be an exciting final round of competition for all of the competitors.
John Russell of the Winston Golf Club shot a solid even par round to grab the Super Senior lead by a single stroke over first round leader Terry Filewich.
