Seav­iew course play­ing tough for mid-am­a­teur event

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

Baddeck’s Trevor Chow was one of only three golfers to break par in the open­ing round of the MCT In­sur­ance Nova Sco­tia men’s mid am­a­teur cham­pi­onship at the Seav­iew Golf and Coun­try Club in North Syd­ney. The 38year-old Chow, who lives in the Hal­i­fax area and golfs out of the Ashburn Club, made three birdies to off­set two bo­geys as he fired a one-un­der par 70 to sit in third place af­ter Fri­day’s round. Paul Coul­son, of Truro, leads the event af­ter shoot­ing a fou­run­der par 67, while Dart­mouth’s Craig Hol­lett shot a 68 to head into Satur­day’s play just one shot off the pace. De­fend­ing cham­pion Bill Burns did not have his best day. The Lin­gan golfer made just one birdie in his round of six-over par 77 and sits tied for 22nd. The best­placed Seav­iew play­ers were Aaron Bar­ring­ton (73) in sev­enth place and Jack Chafe, who shot a 74 and sits tied for ninth. Baddeck’s Ernie Sheaves, who won the 2014 Nova Sco­tia se­nior men’s ti­tle, also shot 74. The three-round tour­na­ment con­tin­ues to­day and wraps up on Sun­day.
