Locke cards third-round 79 at national golf event


MONTREAL, Que. – Brookfield’s Steve Locke followed a brilliant round of even-par 70 on Tuesday with a 9-over 79 yesterday at the Canadian senior men’s golf championship.

Locke started his round on the back nine, where he made two bogeys for a score of 2-over 37. Moving to the front side, Locke bogeyed three of his first six holes and was 4-over on his final three for the day at the 6,497-yard Kanawaki Golf Club near Montreal.
On Tuesday, Locke’s even-par round tied for low round of the day with two other players – Doug Hanzel, of Savannah, Ga., and Frank Van Dornick, of Camrose, Alta.
Locke’s 36-hole score of 155 was right in the cut line.
Locke’s Nova Scotia teammate, Steve Ward of Ken-Wo, made the cut but withdrew before the third round. Dean Woodman of Avon Valley missed the cut.
Hanzel takes a three-stroke lead into the final round after shooting 70 for the third straight day. Fellow American Gene Elliott, who shot 4-under yesterday, is second with 213, while Buzz Fly and Paul Simson, also of the U.S., are tied for third at 214.
