Kirk­gun­zeon curler Grant Hardie, pic­tured above, has had a busy week.

He was part of Bruce Mouat’s rink which won the Mer­cure Masters on Sun­day, de­feat­ing Glen Muir­head 8-3.

Team Mouat, which also in­cludes Stran­raer’s Bobby Lam­mie and Hammy McMil­lan Jnr, had lit­tle time to sit back and en­joy the win.

Just 48 hours later the same squad was be­gin­ning their tilt at the Merid­ian Cana­dian Open in North Battleford, Saskatchewan as part of the Grand Slam of Curl­ing.

They started the tour­na­ment with two wins from their open­ing two games.

On Tuesday they beat Scott McDon­ald’s rink 8-5 be­fore record­ing a 6-3 win over John Ep­ping’s team from On­tario.

The Merid­ian Cana­dian Open fin­ishes on Sun­day.
