Cape Bre­ton golfers have some catch­ing up to do fol­low­ing the open­ing round of the 2015 MCT In­sur­ance Men’s Am­a­teur pro­vin­cial cham­pi­onship at Paragon Golf and Coun­try Club.

Baddeck na­tive Trevor Chow is the top Cape Bre­ton player fol­low­ing the open­ing round. He fired a 6-over-par 77 on Wed­nes­day to put him in a tie for 19th place.

Chow fin­ished in a tie for third place at last year’s men’s am­a­teur cham­pi­onship at Bright­wood Golf and Coun­try Club in Dart­mouth. The Ashburn Golf and Coun­try Club mem­ber is a two time mid-am­a­teur cham­pion in search of his first men’s am­a­teur ti­tle.

Chow and the rest of the field of 108 play­ers are chas­ing Jody Swim of River Hills. The 2007 men’s mid-am­a­teur cham­pion carded a 2-un­der-par 69 on the day. Ashburn’s David Wil­liamson is close be­hind with a 1-un­der­par 70 to­tal, while both Oak­field golfers Ge­off Camp­bell and Jason Thi­bodeau are at even par with a pair of 71 scores.

Three mem­bers of The Lakes Golf Club in Ben Eoin are in the field. Thomas Xi­dos of Beech­mont is in a tie for 31st spot with an 8-over-par 79, Shayne Stevens of Eska­soni is tied for 83rd place with a 14-over-par 85, and Ge­orge Xi­dos of Beech­mont is tied for 99th place fol­low­ing an 18-over-par 89 round.

The top three play­ers and an al­ter­nate at the con­clu­sion of the tour­na­ment will qual­ify for the Cana­dian men’s am­a­teur golf cham­pi­onship in Toronto, Aug. 10-13.

There will be lit­tle rest in be­tween ma­jor pro­vin­cial golf tour­na­ments. The men’s mida­ma­teur cham­pi­onship will be con­tested at Seav­iew Golf and Coun­try Club, July 17-19.
