If you know Gord Percy, the Head Professional at the Carleton Golf & Yacht Club in Manotick, Ontario, you understand that not much phases the guy.
The 46 year-old is about as non-nonchalant as they come. But when it comes to golf he has always had a quiet fire within. He may look calm on the surface but be assured, like the wily duck, he is always paddling hard underneath.
That will get a full test on Thursday as the Verona, Ontario native vies for the title at the PGA Head Professional Championship of Canada presented by Titleist & FootJoy being played in Litchfield, Arizona.
Percy, who jumped out to the lead with an opening score of 66 (-6) on Tuesday, created more space between himself and the field on Wednesday by adding a 69 (-3) to his total. The cumulative 145 (-9) has him three shots out front of Brian McDonald of British Columbia with just 18 holes left on the schedule at The Wigwam Resort.
The pair will be joined by Ontario's Gord Burns (141) in the final group of the championship. Burns was the runner-up in this event in 2017. Tied with Burns in third are Jamie Moran…
