Fleming gunning for third SVR Alberta Open title
Riley Fleming won the event as an amateur in 2013 and backed it up as a professional the following year. He will shoot for his third SVR Alberta Open title tomorrow at River Spirit Golf Club. Hot on his heels and only a shot back of the lead is five-time champion Wes Heffernan who continues his strong play on home soil. 2016 Alberta Mens Amateur champion Evan Holmes is tied for second place with Heffernan and is looking for his first win as a professional.
In the race for low amateur honours is 2014 Alberta Mens Amateur champion Tyler Saunders at five-under-par. He leads by two over St. Albert’s AJ Armstrong. The amateurs are playing for a 2019 Pacific Coast Amateur Championship team position.
The field was cut to the low 60 players and ties after today’s second round. The cut fell at +13 with 64 players left to compete in tomorrow’s final round. Final round tee times can be found here.
