Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

Peter Camp­bell is play­ing some good golf, but the prob­lem is that so are a bunch of other guys at this week’s PGA Tour Canada event in Thun­der Bay. The 32year-old tour­ing pro from Baddeck shot a three-un­der par 69 on Fri­day to fol­low an open­ing round 68 and, with a score of seven-un­der par, sits in a tie for 24th place at the Staal Foun­da­tion Open at the White­wa­ter Golf Club in Thun­der Bay, Ont. On­tario’s Michael Gligic leads the tour­na­ment at 13-un­der par with a two to­tal of 131 (64-67). The top sixty and ties made the cut of three-un­der par. The tour­na­ment, which has ties to north­ern On­tario’s NHL-play­ing Staal broth­ers, also in­cludes for­mer NHLers Grant Fuhr and Marc Savard. Fuhr fin­ished with the high­est score of those who played 36 holes af­ter shoot­ing 83 and 84. Savard, long known as one of hockey’s best golfers, shot an open­ing round 75, but with­drew af­ter 13 holes on Fri­day. He was 16-over par for the round that in­cluded an 11 on a par five. The tour­na­ment con­tin­ues to­day and wraps up on Sun­day.
