Mike Hebb is off to a blistering start at the #GolfBeattieStrong Men’s Senior championship at the Truro Golf Club.
The Ashburn Golf Club member holed five birdies en route to a 3 under par 68 opening round to give him a five-stroke lead heading into day two of the three-day event (Aug. 9-11).
Hebb found his groove as the day went as he slotted two birdies and no bogeys on the back nine. On the opening nine holes he mustered up three birdies but he also bogeyed two others.
The leader didn’t shoot a 1 over par shot after the eighth hole and is
currently the only player to submit a below-par scorecard.
Stephen Locke of the Truro Golf Club was next, shooting a 2 over par 73 — good enough for sole possession of second, while four other players remained deadlocked for third at 3 over par. Another six golfers were tied for seventh with a 75.
Despite the space created between Hebb and the field, plenty is still up for grabs. The tournament’s three lowest combined scores earn a spot on Nova Scotia men’s senior team which is set to compete at the Canadian Senior’s Championship.
